Making time to read...

Six months after picking it up, I decided to buckle down and finish The Old Curiosity Shop. Now that I'm getting into it, I'm starting to like it. Maybe the next time I try Trollope's He Knew He Was Right, I'll get through it. I just need to focus on my reading. Busy as my mom is, she managed to read about 100 books this year (that includes audio books). I'm ashamed of myself- I've read half that.

Next on my list: Atonement by Ian McEwan. I so want to see the movie. It's not playing here. Dammit.

Mom's Rotary Club may have an important guest next week- someone she and I really don't like much, but would still be interesting to see in person. Can't say who he is, but let's just say there will be a lot of security!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is out on DVD Tuesday! I'm getting the special 2-disc edition.

If you can't see it, read it. Either the last ten pages or last ten minutes will rip your heart out.

BTW, I didn't choose Brian for the "Bite Me" thing, just for the "Bite Me" thing.

Oh, I'm definitely going to read it first. Books are almost always better.

You'll love the book. The last ten pages had me in tears.
