Update 3: 10pm
I finished Great House and then I finished Richard III because I am a reading MACHINE! Ahem, or because between them they constituted about 80 pages, and, well, who can't read that in like 2 hours?! So, I'm probably going to read for a little bit more, but I suspect this will be my last update because I'm not really going to be reading substantial amounts. I SHOULD be reading Skeleton Crew next really, because I'm in the middle of it, but I can't because it's late and Stephen King is scary. So I really don't know what's next. Fortunately, I rearranged my bookshelves all nicely yesterday (well, truth be told, I built new ones, but rearranged the books too!) So the books I want to read soonish are at the front. Which is good because it's sort of late and I'm a little sleepy. To all of you still reading (and still updating, I guess)- have the mostest fun! I'll try and check in with some of you and comment and things tomorrow at some point, and oh the larks we'll have remembering things!
So, final stats for now: 415 pages, and 3 books completed! (well, sort of. If I'm cheating. Which I am sort of.)
Update 2: 7.45pm
Finished my first, and hopefully not only book of the day- Heath: A Family's Tale, which turned out to be a lot more respectful than I expected, which is good! Just trying to decide whether to tackle the last 2 acts of Richard III now, or to finish off Great House... Since it's easier, I'll probably go with the latter! But we shall see. So now, my page count is 334 pages, and I've finished a book! Go me etc etc!
Update 1: 4.45pm
Just got back from my nan's house, where I got surprisingly more reading done than expected- I'm now 136 pages into Heath: A Family's Tale, which I am enjoying thus far but it is rather speeding through his movie career, and I fear there may be more emphasis on his death than I would maybe like. But we shall see. I did get plenty distracted by a certain little two year old though, not that I minded in the slightest!
So, about 4 and a half hours in, my page count is 156 pages, and I've finished 0 books... I guess I'd better get moving!
Finally! I can read all day and not feel at all bad about it! Or, more specifically, I can read for a bit, go round my nan's house where I won't do much reading because there's an adorable 2 year old to be entertained by, come home and read read read! And that's all after I've caught up on my blog reading, of course, cause I haven't turned my computer on for 2 days (2 DAYS!) and all my open tabs are reminding me why I shouldn't do that. But hey, it's all reading, right?!
My main goals for today are:
- To finish Great House by Nicole Krauss because I've been reading it FOREVER and it has to go back to the library on Tuesday anyway.
- Finish Richard III because I want to.
- Read this Heath Ledger biography I've had for a long time, because today is the fourth anniversary of his death, and, well, SOB.
