Pretty Guy and the New Sixth Book

NOTE: This is not a comment on how much I like it, but on how much I've been reading it: A LOT.

Meytal is in Israel right now and in her wonderfully cute demanding nature she wanted to read it as soon as possible (she is apparently unable to wait until next week, when she comes home) and did not want me to read it before she did. What all of this essentially boils down to is that I've been putting our new internet phone (recently set up in my grandparents house, with a 650 area code) to good free-minute-ful use: I've spent... oh... I'd say... 8 of the last 30 hours reading to my sister from it aloud on this very phone line. We just got finished with a nice little four hour stretch of just reading. And I'm proud to say that we're half-way through. Considering how much I disliked the idea before we began, I have to say I'm fairly pleased with our progress. I didn't realize things would go this quickly. And I'm improving my English reading skills. Who knows, maybe I'll start speaking an intelligible something sometime soon! Wouldn't that be nice...
