< Ain't We Got Fun!
I'm Not As Shocked As You Think I Should Be >

[Comments] (2) Reading Railroad: Today my students took their writing proficiency. A cursory glance shows they did better than I expected. We shall see what the committee thinks.

While they were writing, I read Harry Potter. I knocked off a couple of hundred pages during the test. Then, when I got home, Anne wasn't here--she is still not here-- so after my nurse went away I went to bed and read more and had a nap. I have been feeling really rotten today, so I mostly read all day and I am on Chapter 25.

I am sad about not having a nice visit with Anne. I was counting on this afternoon because tomorrow who knows how long I will have to work.

I think the author is losing her touch. The book starts out v-e-r-y-s-l-o-w-l-y and just is not as interesting and full of fun detail as some of the former ones. I think I liked the first one best. Of course, I will finish it, and I hope it gets more exciting from here on out.

I hope my congratulations to your teaching ability and your students' success isn't premature. And Harry Potter sounds interesting. I don't read the new book until the next year when it comes out in paperback, and I hope it gets better.

I agree it starts out slow. The ending was quite good, but I was still somewhatsuprised through parts of it, because it is what you expect but didn't think would really happen.
