- Book of Lost Tales part 2 by J.R.R. Tolkien- I read one chapter of it, which constituted about a quarter of the book (i.e. pretty long). It was great though! It was the story of Túrin, which is one of my favorites but incredibly tragic.
- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery (Re-read) (audiobook)- I listened to multiple chapters (I'm not sure how many). I'm about a third of the way through it and I realized I haven't met Gilbert Blythe yet! I didn't realize it took quite so long get to him. I was listening to this while doing dishes and cleaning the sink. It sure made the chores go by faster!
- Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski- I started and finished this last night.... it took me about an hour and a half to zip through it. It was a Newberry award winner back in the day and I though it was pretty good. :) It was a cute story and a little reminiscent of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books. Reading it made me feel incredibly lazy... like I should go out and hoe the garden in 100 degree weather for a few hours.
So all in all a great first day of Bout of Books, despite me forgetting it was happening. :) The joys of not having started the semester of school yet and having lots of time. :)
