Day 204 – Thankful for Childhood Classics I Just Can’t Put Down

Last night I was in bed early and was planning on getting a great night of sleep.  Instead of turning off the light I reached for a book that I recently suggested to Gavin.  He’d read it and wanted me to read it again so we could talk about it.  I figured I might as well get a few pages in and then I’d nod off for the evening.

Two and a half hours later I finally laid it back on my nightstand with no need for a bookmark.  It’s been a while since I’ve pulled the “read the book from cover to cover in one sitting” trick, and it felt great!

The book I found for Gavin was Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper.  It was the start of the Dark Is Rising series that I loved as a middle schooler.  Not only did Gavin enjoy it, but Dominic read the entire book on Monday too!

I may be a little slow on the draw this morning (getting up early to run was a little rough), but it was all worth it.  There’s something so refreshing about cruising through a book in one night like that, especially when it is one that I used to love as a kid.
