binge reading

a real thirst for a good story


once again, i lost track of what i read when. *shrugs* i guess sometimes i just don't want to keep track of stuff. i need to try harder.

i have been re-reading the following since last update:
(all of these are by Terry Pratchett)
*Witches Abroad
*Lords & Ladies
*Men at Arms
*Feet of Clay
*The Fifth Elephant

when you need a good laugh, you can't go wrong with pterry. 8^)
and, then i started to keep track again.

*Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett-started 7-15-05
i put this one down in the middle to start the next one. i'll pick carpe jugulum back up in a bit.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
by J.K. Rowling-started 7-16-05 (around 12:30 a.m.); finished 7-17-05 (around 2 a.m. i would've completed it earlier, but i had to work on the 16th.)
Very good! there's so much packed into it. i won't spoil it, but i did laugh and, towards the end, i didn't cry but felt much shock and sadness. 8^(
my friend caroline just finished it this morning and has sent me many text messages about it. 8^)
i'm looking forward to the last book.

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke-started 7-18-05
This one's turning out good! i can't wait to finish it. i wish i would've splurged and got the hardback. and it looks like it's a series and that's it been picked up to be made into a movie! woo hoo!
hey, jo! the original is in german. you might want to pick it up before you leave germany this month.
