Read-a-thon Hour 24

I was in my couch all ready to speed read my way through the 24th hour, when my husband told me that he would like me to come along to a breakfast meeting he has, because he is not feeling well (looks like I have passed my cold on to him, as I am now 100% my peachy self.) It took me 10 sec to decide what my priorities are, so I took a shower, grabbed a book, and went out with him.

Time: 8:00am

Currently Reading:

Bamboo Grove

So Far from the Bamboo Grove
by Yoko Kawashima Watkins

It’s a memoir, written for children, about the author’s life as a 11 year-old Japanese who grew up in North Korea. Towards the end of WWII, her mother escaped from North Korea with Yoko and her sister. They made it back to Japan, where they lived at the train station and rummaged through garbage for food.
