Oh, kids. It is so on.
So I’ve finished my first book. Sandman, The Overture, because I was feeling bad that it was in last year’s TBR, and not only did I not read it then, I didn’t ever read it at all. I don’t know why I waited so long, it was excellent.
I then started in on Book 2 of The Familiar: Into the Forest. It is approximately five million pages, but a lot of word art and other illustration, so I think it should go quickly. It seemed like a good follow-up to Sandman, as it is also very dream-like.

Jefferson is skipping around a fair bit, but also getting a LOT of reading done. I seriously don’t know how he does it.
He started in on Bullfinch’s Mythology, then switched to The House of Hades (which wasn’t in his TBR pile, but something in Mythology made him go grab it.) Then he picked up the current National Geographic. Which I don’t have a link to, of course, but will be counting as a book for our purposes.

Like, seriously? I thought I might actually be ahead of him in pages for one second by starting with a graphic novel, but NO. Oh, well.
Andrew has built us a beautiful fire to read by because he is a wonderful human being. Solomon said he wanted to readathon with us, but within the first fifteen minutes he reported to me that he had read an entire Harry Potter book already and was starting a new one, after which he immediately disappeared to the office to play computer games. So… he’s done.
The fundraiser is going very well! Over a third of the way there already! Thanks to everyone who has supported us already!
