Comments: While things aren't improving—and are actually getting much worse—over at the Auburn-LSU game, I'm just charging along with the reading. In the pase 34 minutes, I read 40 pages in Corpse Pose by Diana Killian. Like most cozy mysteries, it's an easy book to read with an engaging plot and appealing characters, so I'm simply gobbling up the pages. Sure wish that Auburn was making a better showing against LSU. While it's no shame to be beat by the Number 1 team in the nation, I'm not happy that the scores are so far apart—3/4 of the way through the 3rd quarter and the score is 42-3. It's not been a good day for my alma mater. But it's been a very good day for the Read-a-Thon. As we move into the 11th hour of the Read-a-Thon, I'm hanging in there really strong.
