It was a good holiday weekend full of hard work! Not a lot more reading done, unfortunately, but I did finish “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet” and it was enjoyable. As I said on Goodreads, I was hesitant to read it, thinking it would be sad and heavy, but it really wasn’t! It was sweet and told mostly from the perspective of a 12 year old boy and the 50 year old man he becomes. It was nice.
I started listening to “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” today, and it starts out hard to listen to! It starts out with the Prime Minister being visited by the Ministry of Magic and then Snape meeting with Bellatrix and then a lot of newspaper headlines. I don’t think we see Harry until chapter four (maybe three), so it just feels different than the other books. Thankfully it’s shorter than the last few, so I should be able to rip through it!
I also downloaded my second library e-book! A Diane Mott Davidson book, just for fun. I’ll have to see if I can get the last few books on my Spring Reading Thing list from the library. Not many left! Yay!
Well, not many days of work left, that’s for sure. It’s amazing how much better I feel after time away. I am dreading the next three days – well, maybe dreading is too strong, but I’m really hoping for strength to get through them. I have a LOT to do!
But now, I’m off to read! Blogs before bed!
