For the second year in a row here in Chicago it feels like summer (about 80 degrees) in mid-October. Hopefully this year everyone makes it through today’s Chicago marathon safely!
My sister and her friend are in town this weekend (as many of you know, my sister will be coming back again in a couple of weeks to actually LIVE here). To celebrate the beautiful weather and the fact that her friend, Katherine, has never been to Chicago before, we went and walked around downtown all day yesterday. Very nice, not very conducive to getting much reading done. I did try to read my current book, “Descartes’ Bones” while we were on the ‘El’, but I’m quite stuck on it and being on the train didn’t help. I kept looking out the window instead of at the page.
I’m still not totally sure whether I want to finish “Descartes’ Bones” or if I’m just going to give it up, since I am having to push so hard to get through it. In the interest of at least breaking it up with something more dynamic, I started “The Fire” by Katherine Neville last night.
I’m hoping to get some good reading time in this afternoon, after church and after we unload my sister’s car. Hopefully I can make it at least some portion of the way through ONE of these books, since they’re both being released on Thursday. I may have to do my reading out on the porch, though, because it is gorgeous today!
Happy Sunday Salon!
