Day 2 of Bout of Books 9.0 was a bit of a bust for me. I thought I would have more time to read than I had previously expected to, but I was wrong. Not only was the whole day hectic, but the previously problematic kitchen sink issue became a fully-fledged debacle, with water all over the kitchen and a ton of cabinet emptying, re-arranging and clean-up work to do just so someone can get situated to do repairs, then everything has to be put back. (All this, and the maintenance guy is going to have to come back Friday to do yet more work.) Long story short: I didn’t get much reading done. I didn’t even get my review of Speech Sounds finalized and posted. Ah, well. Let’s hope today is a better bookish day! Barring any household explosions, I should have a relatively quiet mid- to late-day here at home, with no one else around after about 2 PM PST.
