Read This Hour: "The Bear Hunt" by Leo Tolstoy and Redeye by Clyde Edgerton
Feedback: Still not convinced by the Edgerton, but the Tolstoy story was remarkable. Let me just say it was true and that a wounded bear was "worrying" Tolstoy's face at one point. Nuts. Also, this line from the Edgerton was awesome:
he had this look on his face like he was right out of hell and hadn't ever gone to sleep. (59)I imagine that might be an apt descriptor for me long about hour 20.
Snack Status: My favorite: green apple slices and peanut butter. And a little chex mix. Not as good as homemade, but it'll do in a pinch.
General Mood: Good. Talked to the kids for a bit this hour. They're enjoying lunch with friends now. I'm still feeling like I'm reading more slowly than usual, but alas. I'm also feeling rushed as I read. I hope I can chill out a little an fully enjoy the experience.
Finished Thus Far: nada
