As the sun slowly sets outside our picture window, and the company for luncheon has finally departed, I am ready to resume my reading.
My goals have changed.
Instead of hoping to read 9,352 pages today, I’m hoping to finish The Brothers Karamazov. I’m hoping to start Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino. I’m hoping to have at least the next four hours of SSR: Sustained Silent Reading for those of you who don’t teach elementary school.
Or, as my son used to call it when he was in first grade: Sit down, Shut up, and Read.
