Well, we were without electricity from early A.M. (4 or so) until after 5 P.M. this evening, which was hard, since without electricity, there's no heat, no hot water, no cooking, no coffee! (That last was probably the worst for me; I had to go to McDonald's to stave off an attack of no-caffeine heebie jeebies). This explains the lack of posting earlier today, as once the electricity came back on, there was a scurry of cleaning and washing (since it's sometimes temperamental, and I wanted to be ready just in case it went out again).
I'm currently reading (clicking cover will take you to the Goodreads page):
The Dragon's Path by Daniel Abraham - on page 435 with 314 pages read during the read-a-thon
--Page 69: "Italy?"
"The hotbed of antisupernatural sentiment," spat Professor Lyall.
"The cesspit of religious fanaticism," added Tunstell.
"The Templars." That last was from Floote, and he whispered it.
"I think it's a perfectly topping idea," said Alexia, expressionless.
Madame Lefoux examined Alexia's face sympathetically. "You think the Templars can explain how ******* ?"
"Why don't you tell me? You once said you managed to read a portion of the Templars' Amended Rule."
"You did what?" Professor Lyall was impressed.
Floote looked at the Frenchwoman with renewed suspicion.

My Book Retreat's Mini-Challenge is the Page 69 Test, so I've included page 69 of Blameless here. The premise of the Page 69 Test is that a reader can turn to page 69 of any book and use that page to judge whether or not they will like the rest of the book.
