[Comments] (9) Bookworm: Last night I finished reading The Work and the Glory. I was so proud of myself I counted up all the pages- 5,261 pages in 9 books. John is already encouraging me to read other serieses, I think partly to discourage me from reading Harry Potter for what he claims is the 7th time, but I think I am going to take a break from reading for a while. I think I will get ahead on my crocheting and card-making and scrapbooking for now.

When I get into reading, all I do is read. When we were first married John thought I didn't like reading because I never did, but I've gotten into it since then and proved him wrong. I think it's been about a year. I've read seven Chronicles of Narnia, five Harry Potter, eleven Series of Unfortunate Events, The Lord of the Rings, about ten novels about the Amish, two movie-ized books after seeing the movie, The Book of Mormon and nine The Work and the Glory. And about 50 magazines.

If there are 5,261 pages to read in a series, I don't do much else in my spare time until I've read 5,261 pages. I need a break.

I am the same way about reading. Once I get into a book, I find it quite impossible to put down. I tink I'm getting better, though, between reading on my fifteen minut breaks from work and lsitening to audio books while in the car--although I do tend to linger after I've already arrived at my destination if it is a particularily tense moment (and OOTP is full of those). I am thinking of rereading all the HPs in preparation for half-blood prince. Maybe I can start 5 months ahead and read one per month, or one chapter a day, or something (except I might have had to statrt a while ago for that). Maybe we can have a reading group. Although I won't have much time in February since I am doing nano again... Geez, this comment is rambling.

I mentioned rereading HP to get ready for the 6th book, but John said no. No matter what he says, I've only read them three times. Although, one time was backwards, when you got us the 5th book for Christmas.

Does he really have veto power over what you read?

A reading group! I really like that idea.

No, just teasing power. I vetoed all reading, and I'm crocheting again.

Rachel, you are listening to HP #5 on cd now? I am too, to refresh my memory for the 6th book. That is funny that we have listened to the same books on tape twice now.

Why reread the same book for the eigth time when there are other books out there you've never read?

Because it would only be the 4th time. =P
