I normally have my blog posted (and written) way before now. But um...well, I got a bit distracted tonight. I ended up reading until after midnight in order to finish a book. Now, this isn't anything completely out of the ordinary for me, I used to do it all the time (have since I was in high school).
However, I rarely allow myself to do it now. I just can't function on 4 hours sleep like I used to. But I simply couldn't put the book down. HP7. Now those of you who know me will realize this is saying alot. I don't read HP. Not because I didn't think they were good books but because I just couldn't find the time. My reading time is now limited and I just...I don't know, always chose something else. Well, when the 7th book came out and all the hype started...I found myself on the outside looking in. It's a flaw of mine. That drives me crazy. I want to be in the thick of things. So I decided I'd seen the 5 movies that I would just read books 6 & 7.
I finished 6 on Saturday night with the intention of borrowing a copy of 7. No one was finished. And I couldn't wait. I bought a copy first thing Sunday morning.
I've been using the book as a reward. I'm in the middle of revisions on my own story and wouldn't allow myself to crack the cover until I'd met my goal for the day. Today I couldn't stop.
So, it's after midnight, I haven't had a shower and I'll be getting up in roughly 6 hours to get myself and the girls ready for the office. And even though I'm going to be tired in the morning it was worth it. The book absolutely rocked!
So now, if I can get my confidence out of the gutter, I'm going to work on finishing my own. Anyone else read something fantastic lately?
