Comments: I’ve started a readathon just after I finished another.  Crazy me!  But I am dying to finish some more of my 2012 reading challenges.  I want to knock out at least five books during this week.  I’ve already got one down and another started.  Great beginning!  Today’s reads: Law, home decorating, then on to WWII… interesting change in reading mindset.
