Reading In Review

The last couple weeks, have been pretty interesting. I've been getting into doing a couple new things. Like reading. Perhaps to the neglect of my sons, I got to read some books for leisure. I know, it's wild, isn't it?! Books for leisure! I've been reading the same three books for 5 months. I've been Trying to read the Bible in a year, but the addition of Sam got me about 5 books within the bible behind. I also am about halfway through The Strong-Willed Child. And last but not least, I've been plugging through Your Baby:Week by Week. Of course all these are bathroom reading.
In June, we started reading Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince "to Sam", you know, a chapter or two as he drifted off to sleep each night. Once done, we saw the movie. However, I was so engrossed in the end of the that book, I picked up Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows. I finished it in 3 days.
Since it was such a refreshingly quick read, I got motivated to restart my bathroom reading books. However, they are NOT quick reads.

Then my girlfriend Carrie, lent me Twilight. I read it in 3 days too. I couldn't put it down. I had some thoughts, that I wanted to jot down. I liked it, but not as much as Harry Potter. There aren't subplots.
I can't really say it's well written, but it is an intriguing concept.

If your family says don't go out alone, don't.  Girl goes and does things her parents say not to, and gets in trouble.  Duh.  I learned that if we just listened to our parents, our problems would be so much less.
I did love the vision of the vampire skin sparkling in the sun in a meadow.  And the vampire who became a doctor rather than harm.  That was cool.
