ReadingOutsideReservation Blues broke my heart. In fact, part of it made me cry, and it was so exquisitely done. But I can’t explain it without talking about the end of the book, so I’ll just leave it at that. Sherman Alexie is an incredible author (this was his debut novel!), and I cannot wait to continue reading his backlist.

As I mentioned last update, I moved outside, so you have this picture. It was taken with a self-timer, which I’m not good at, so sorry about the awkwardness (it seems like every read-a-thon, I get more and more willing to post ugly pics/vlogs of myself! lol). Yes, there was snow on the ground two days ago and today I had to wear a hat to keep the sun off my face and I’ll actually be changing from yoga pants into shorts because I’m too hot (I will spare you the photo of my sleeping bootie shorts! lol). I’m excited to start cheering a new group of readers, so I’m going to stop writing now and go cheer instead! :)

    I wish I could read outside. But I’m like some kind of vampire nerd, the sun is just too bright for me even with sunglasses.

    I do love Alexie. I’ve not read R. Blues but I love The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.

    Three books now! How do you do that?? I’m looking forward to reading Alexie. My sister lives in Denver. I’m assuming the weather is similar. She’ll be enjoying the sunshine!

    I don’t know how you can read and cheer…I can barely visit my group of readers!

    You’re amazing!!

    Congrats on the job you’re doing. I’m impressed.

    LOVE YOU!!!!!

    Really love seeing pictures of you Eva! Love that it’s sunny there today.

    Hope you’re having fun reading. I had to comment on this post as it looks like you are sitting outside? And in a sleeveless top? It’s that warm where you are? And sunny? I’m envious! :)

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
