When we first started this blog, I was a bit concerned that Katie might not be able to keep up with me well enough for us to keep ourselves moving through the list at a respectable pace.
Parents can be so arrogant.
Sure, with the first couple of books, I finished first, and nagged a bit for her to hustle along, though I understood she had school and sports practices and things. Then, she finished Half Magic in a few days. I finished My Father’s Dragon first, but she sat down and read it while I made dinner one night. Not only did she finish The Graveyard Book before me, but she also finished All of a Kind Family (which I have not yet started) before we even have our Graveyard reviews posted. I have convinced her to at least write that review before starting the next book.
She still has a month of school, so I have a few weeks to adjust my reading rhythms; I think I should be preparing myself to shift into very high reading gear.
