Nope, not the decade or the temperature. The number of books I've read so far this year. I got my freelance project that was due this evening finished in the late afternoon and rewarded myself by reading a book. So what that there's a mountain of laundry in the upstairs hall approaching Everest territory. Laundry schmaundry!! Anyway, #60 is Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. I'd heard good things about her and she spoke at my older children's school earlier this year. This is her latest and I originally picked it up at the library so that J could read it. I found the protagonist to be an engaging character and the book itself to be a thoughtful treatment of such issues as conflict avoidance, the danger of keeping secrets, the importance of honesty, both with oneself and others, and how different people can interpret the same events in multiple ways. I liked it. Tomorrow I'll be delving back into the world of freelance educational consultancy, but for now, I'll savor the memory of an engaging book.

In a stunningly unrelated issue, has anyone else noticed a huge upswing in the number of Loganmobiles, I mean bright yellow X-Terras on the road? I'm not keeping track like I did last summber *thinks back nostalgically*, but I swear that I saw SIX in the space of an hour out doing errands earlier this week. It was kind of weird. lol I'll break out my Logan icon in honor of the weirdness.
