First of all, can I say that it really shouldn’t be the last Sunday of August yet? I can hardly believe that the month is almost over, though Natalie is very glad that the last couple of weeks have gone by quickly. (Brief update for those of you following her progress: she has a C/T scan scheduled on Wednesday, the 1st. If scan shows that inflammation is gone or greatly improved, we will start to advance her diet slowly and continue with Remicade treatments; if scan shows no or not enough improvement, we schedule her for surgery to have about 8 to 10 centimeters removed from her small intestine. She’s hanging in there, but is really tired of the whole IV at home thing.)
I did get a bunch of school-related stuff done yesterday, so I’m not going to feel too guilty if I take some time to sit and read today. I am currently one disc away from finishing The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on audio (I’m typing this Saturday night, so I may actually have finished it before crashing), and am in the middle of reading Matched by Ally Condie – which is fantastic so far – and Heresy by S.J. Parris, which is beautifully written but a slower read.
If you get a chance to read on this last Sunday of the month, which books will be your companions?
