I hope I'm not alone in this little...ritual of mine. It's a new one, granted, born out of many frustrated trips out of town. Nonetheless, it's kinda weird.
Have you ever been caught out of town with a book you just cannot get into? It's happened to me MANY times, unfortunately, so I've developed this little "system" of making sure I have something suitable and for which I'm in the mood. If I'm not currently reading a book, I choose 2-3 to take with...and, if I have the time, I will read the first chapter of each to see if they pique my interest. Yeah...
That's what I tried to do last night with John Green's LOOKING FOR ALASKA. It was late...around 2 am...I have to leave this morning at 730...I still need to pack and finish a few other to-do's... I read the first chapter...interesting...keep going...page 40... oh this is too good, I'll read another half hour... page 100...150...180...well, why stop now?? I finish ALL of it. Thank God it was only 220 pages. ROFL. I turned out my lights to hit the hay at about 545...and well, my alarm was set for an hour later.
DAMN. YOU. JOHN. GREEN.
Not only will I be completely dead by time I reach my cousin's wedding shower, but I'm in the same boat I started out in. I don't have a book to read.
Gah, yeah...and thanks. Thanks for writing a damn good book. :)
(I'll review it...that is IF I survive today (g))
P.S. Jenna -- I finished THE HOST yesterday. Girl, we need to talk. (g) Loved it!
