Somebody stop me!

I have put the book down...for now. I suspect I'll be picking it up again soon. I keep thinking, "Okay, you finished that chapter, now is a good time to stop." And then I immediately start the next chapter. I've managed to squeeze in a couple hundred pages today, my head is swimming, my neck hurts, and my butt is numb. And it hurts so good! Ha!

Seriously, this is one heckuva read. (Duma Key, if you missed earlier entries.) I like Edgar more with every page, but my uneasiness also grows...I'm pretty sure something really really bad is going to happen. I hope not to Edgar. If you've read it, DON'T TELL ME! I seriously wish I could stay up all night and read.

Hi Beth, nice to meet you =)!  Same thing happens to me when I am reading a good book.  If I don't read it in two - three days, I don't usually finish it.   Thanks so much for stopping by and playing the Weekly Sentence game!  Nice blog you have here =)!  I will return!  Hugs, Val xox

I love when a book is that good.  Just not a Steven King fan.

Thanks for stopping by, Val--hope to see you again!

Traci, no matter what books or authors you like...the thrill is just being consumed. Having said that, I'm off to read some more. :)

In a few months, you will be able to stay up all night reading...Some things about retirement are sweet! I'm the same way reading. I had to laugh when you said, "Okay, you finished that chapter, now is a good time to stop." I do that a few times at night in bed reading, until I realize I'm beginning to fall asleep, sitting up.

I have to admit that I've done that, too, Indy. I'll wake up with the book laying on my chest and my glasses all askew. :)
