A Day in the Lonesome October-fest, October 17

  The continuing account of reading A Night in the Lonesome October with an nine-year-old, out loud and during the day.

October 17

If yesterday was our vocabulary chapter, today was the anatomy chapter. She learned femur, patella and vertebrae. (She also learned what a sexton was, making this a little of a vocabulary chapter.) While the lines about trade unions went over her head, she enjoyed the reappearance of the old graveyard dog.

It's a fun chapter, and I enjoyed giving different accents to each of the speakers.
