  1. I totally agree on Henry and Clare! Happy reading!

    It might be a good idea to allow anonymous comments for the read-a-thon... Get more visitors that way. Just a suggestion!

  2. My Book
    by David L. Harrison

    I did it!
    I did it!
    Come and look at what I've done!
    I read a book!
    When someone wrote it
    Long ago
    For me to read,
    How did he know
    That this was the book
    I'd take from the shelf
    And lie on the floor
    And read by myself?
    I really read it!
    Just like that!
    Word by word,
    From first to last!
