Light and tunnels

There is light at the end of the tunnel for both the HP book and my project.

For Harry Potter - I am in the high 500s. Why do I have to work, feed children, go to Wal-Mart, put the dogs outside, sleep, and eat? Why can't I just drop all of those commitments and read? I feel like a dork because I haven't finished it yet. Carl tells me I'm missing too much because I'm reading too fast! GAH! I just want to know what happens...

Of course, I could have taken Lori's route... I used to do that a long time ago. I'm too invested now to read the ending. I'll just keep on keepin' on.

For the project - The files have been sent to the printer; the pilot is on Thursday. Edits will be made and final printing is on tap for next week. So nice to see it wrapping up.

I bought it Sunday and I'm on page 457. I LOVE the Harry Potter series. I'm with you...why do kids need to eat when there's such good reading to be done. Priorities!

Gotta go read while no one is looking! The boss is out today so I'm good for a few pages!

And now you should blow off the work day and find an empty conference room for some Harry Pottering ...

Sweet Tea finished it last night. I am half way though. I could have been finished, too, if I didn't spend so much time reading my blog friend's entries. An hour or two, well, not waisted, but not reading HP either.

I am finishing book 4 today and will start book 5. I wanna read the book before I see the movie and I wanna see the movie while it is still in the theatres. I already now what happens in 7... The Teenager read it in about 18 hours and told me.

I burned through it in about seven hours, but I want to go back and reread at a more leisurely pace. When I read so fast like that, I feel like I don't take in as much as I do when I take my time.

Sometimes,if I really like abook, I read every page twice.

I am a dork.
