Read-a-Thon: 1st book finally

Since I’ve been savoring it, I just now finished my first book of the Read-a-Thon: Packing for Mars by Mary Roach.

Amazingly wonderful book, which made me laugh out loud at least 3 times. Plus it was filled with some of my favorite guys (Collins, Glenn, Lovell). I’ll write all about it later.
Since I last wrote, I ate the official food of the Read-a-Thon: quinoa salad. It’s been my consistent Read-a-Thon staple. I’m now fortified for endless hours of reading. And eating.
Next I’m starting Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella. This bad, bad Iowan has never read this stuff before (nor have I seen Field of Dreams), but that’s about to change.
Speaking of Iowa — When my sister and a friend both mentioned the baby eagles in Decorah (IOWA!) today, I ended up over at the Nest Cam site checking out those little buggers. I love how bald eagles (the grown-up ones) always look so darn honked off. Also: grateful the turkey’s not our national bird.
