Adventures In Reading

The other day Janny0 (My lovely wife) and I were chatting, I think it was Monday. We were talking about all this book reading that I have been doing, and she was feeling a little left out of the action.

I proposed that she help me out, and tackle a couple of books from the pile.

After a little bit of persuading she agreed to try.

I get books all the time, and it is not unusual for the shipment to contain books by accident. Last week I got a package of 4 books, only one of which was for review, The other three were accidents. One of them was only 49 pages long!

I gave it to Jan to review, with the promise that if she generates a 400 word review I will publish it!

So I get home from work today and Jan asks me how I am doing with the book I am reading, well the short answer is 'not very well, I have only managed 200 pages in 2 days. This means I am way behind schedule!

Jan offers up the news that she has got started with her 49 page book, and after a 3 days of effort has made it almost to the end of the first paragraph!

I think Jan has a little ways to go before be bestow the 'Book Reviewer' title on her. At this rate she will likely finish reading the 49 page book sometime in the year 2020!
