At the last moment I changed my mind about what my next book would be. I heard mention of this book in an Orion article, and have been really excited about it ever since. So far it is off to a promising start. Since the embargo started between Cuba and the US, no car parts have been allowed to be shipped in. Although Cuba can import cars from Russia, they are often too expensive for the current Cuban economy, so people through shear willpower and ingenuity have been keeping 1950s cars on the road for decades.

I’m probably going to take a nap while I read this…

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!

Now comes the time when the headaches and the need to fidget kicks in. You just have to know that you’re doing great and if you need to take a break take one. Then come back and enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon.

Sounds like an interesting book. I hope your nap revives you and I look forward to your comments on this book when you finish it.

Happy Reading!

I’m popping by again to offer some more cheering! Give me an R! Give me an E! Give me an A! Give me a D! What does that spell?! Read! Read! Read!

Enjoy your new book! And your nap. 😉
