Just in case I do have any readers, I am alive and doing well. I have not died of boredom from reading the first few Newbery winners.
I recently became a father for the first time so naturally, all sorts of priorities are being juggled and rearranged. I'm nearly done with book three THE DARK FRIGATE and will comment on it sometime in the near future!
Although I will say, my stack of newer books to read are piling up, and I'm getting restless devoting my small window of reading time to older, boring Newbery winners. But, I want to do this so do this I shall!
Soon, I'll get back into the swing of things. For now, fatherly duties are calling!
