Forgot National Novel Reading Month

So . . . I forgot about National Novel Reading Month (NaNoReMo), hosted by John.

I forgot because I truly haven’t been online, not on the blog, only randomly and briefly on twitter, and rarely anywhere else. Instead, I have been researching spring 2014 fashions (I dislike crop tops. Why are they making a reappearance? Bah. I wish this particular trend bon voyage.), looking up synonyms for green, and getting reacquainted with my spelling inadequacy.

I recalled NaNoReMo when I saw someone tweet about it.

The idea is to read a classic book this month. I haven’t read a lot of classics, so this is a good time to do it, in the company of so many others.

I chose Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie is a classic, yes? I have never read anything else by Agatha Christie. Until I looked it just yesterday, I didn’t even know this is the ninth book in a series. I am not sure how much previous events in the series will affect the book, but hopefully, not a lot.

I am hopeful I will have time to finish reading it this month.
