I finished reading Spying on the South by Tony Horwitz. I also read a little more of The Seclusion by Jacqui Castle. It was a busy day for me at work, so I didn’t get nearly as much reading in as I wanted. Today will probably be similar, but at least it’s Friday!

I finished Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne. I intended on starting The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald for one class, and Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman for the other, but I didn’t get passed the introductions for either before I went to bed. I’ll be dipping into both of those throughout today, but I know I won’t get anywhere near the end of either by tomorrow.
