Read-A-Thon :: Hours 15-16

Still in the midst of The Yankee Years and now celebrating the ALDS victory by my beloved team! Woohoo!!! I’m also beginning to lean toward pushing it aside for a while and reading something shorter. I’d love to be able to say I *completed* a book during this event, and with each chapter of Yankee being longer and longer, I’m afraid I’d barely get the one book done by the end of the 24 hours. I’ll think on that while reading just one more chapter.

Read-A-Thon :: Hours 13-14

I spent the past two hours with The Yankee Years, accompanied by the background warble of the American League Division Series with my Bronx Bombers (currently in the lead 6-0). Woot Woot! So far, so good for the both of us!
