A Tale of Two Demon Slayers by Angie Fox

Comments: I didn't prepare as I had intended, so I spent time in both the 1st and second hours getting my post template together and otherwise organizing myself for the marathon reading session. I'm definitely going to have to lean toward the Read-a-Thon Lite approach this time as I have a number of things that I must do—like laundry and lunch with my parents-in-law. And of course, I'll have to visit with Baby Victoria and her proud parents.

  21. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!
