It's like a drug

Really, it is. I don't know why I like these books so much! I stayed up a little late last night reading. And then this morning, when I got up, I swear I read 300 pages in 2 1/2 hours. That's how good it was. I went to the library and got a library card, and checked out Eclipse. I couldn't wait to borrow it from someone.

The second book was really sad. I'm hoping the third one is a little less sad. I don't know, I just totally felt for Bella and they way that Stephenie Meyer wrote the book, I could feel the pain that Bella was in. It was awful! The only reason I kept reading last night and this morning is beacuse I knew that something was going to happen that would make the book happy again. At least, that is what I hoped. I was right. It was totally worth it, staying up late and then spending my morning reading.

Not like I had a whole lot of housework to do today.... Our landlady came down yesterday to FINALLY give us the keys to the bedroom doors (it's only been like what? 4-5 months since we moved in!) so I had to clean the house top to bottom yesterday.

I was going to run down to work and quilt for an hour, but at 3 I have a consultation with some laser hair removal place. I won a gift certificate there, so I figured I might as well find out about what the GC would get me. Anyway, by the time I get down there I pretty much would be able to do like 2 blocks and then have to leave, so I think I'll go down after the consultation. I have two quilts I need to finish by tomorrow. Hopefully I can get it done by then. I'm sure I will. They are pretty straight-forward quilts. Not too fancy or detailed. I might even get one finished and the other one half done tonight. That would be ideal.

In the meantime, I'm going to read my book now. Hope I don't get too into the book before I have to go to my consultation! (I know, I know, I'm totally addicted....but really the last time I was ever able to read a book all the way through in a short period of time was HP7, so it has been a LONG time. I forgot how much I love reading! And it always helps to have a really good book.) :)

I hate it when I finish a good book. I get lonesome for my "family"!! And a bad book? I wish I could just put it down and go get another one, but I stay til the bitter end.

People keep telling me to read these books but I'm like you said in your first post - a vampire love story? No thanks. Now after seeing your reaction I'm afraid to start!

You better get on Stephenie Meyer's site and read her Midnight Sun draft. It was leaked online so she ultimately posted her unfinished and unedited draft and is putting the project "on hold indefinitely." Sad
One person always ruins it for all.

Thanks Rachy! My sis-in-law just told me about it this afternoon, too. I'm borrowing her copy of Breaking Dawn. Can't wait to read the draft though. I know, people are so mean to ruin everyone else's fun!
