I'm terrible at figuring out the time differences so I decided to start while I had the chance. The kid went to the playground and hubby is puttering in the garage. I started close to 12 pm my time. So, I've read just over an hour.
I've been reading Summer by Edith Wharton. I'm on page 63. I love her way of writing. I'm involved in it now. Charity is a girl 'down from the Mountain' who was taken in by a lawyer. She's just learning about her roots now and is falling in love with a boy from the city. Knowing Wharton, there won't be a happy ending.
Thanks for all the comments so far!!
