Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, day 39!
39) A book I expected to hate but loved
Before I started the Stieg Larsson trilogy of books, I never would have imagined that I would have loved them as much. It took me about 75 pages to get into the first book, but then I was hooked. I felt myself wincing a few times, anticipating that things were going to be scary or bad, but they just got up to the edge and never went over for me.
I also didn’t want to read “Angela’s Ashes” because I thought it would be so heavy and sad, but it was nothing of the sort. It was full of hope and good humor. I loved that book, too.
#39 on my list was: Nothing. Here is the point when I have to admit that the list that I found of my “40 things” ends at 38! How depressing is that? I was making my list as I went along (as was evidenced by #37 – penned when the opportunity arose) and was focused on the ones left to do rather than finishing the list. Ugh.
So tomorrow, I will work on a new list of some kind! 5 Things to complete by October end? 10 things to do on my Sabattical? 45 things to do before 45? 50 things to do before 50? I will ponder this and start a list…
Off to read!
