My Epic Reading Adventures: The Final Five

Chapter 29: The Final Five

That right. You read it. Five more books and I will have read one-hundred books this year. Strangely (I never thought I would say this) I haven't wanted to buy new books. Gasp... I'm just in the mood to read what I've already got I guess. Thus, I have turning my house upside down to find any books that I can realistically complete in my three day time limit. I've discovered that I'm a big fan of the long novel, but I did find some stuff. By some twist of glorious fate I found my lost copy of Breakfast at Tiffany's while cleaning. I breezed though that in a few hours. I also discovered a book called Dancing Though Fire in my library which I hadn't read yet (obviously I have now). I dug up my long forgotten graphic novel Death: The Time of Your Life. Now I just have to find five more books. The candidates that I found for Thursday are Number The Stars and The Outsiders. I also randomly found a graphic novel called The Furies hidden in my book case. I vaguely remember buying it, but I don't remember actually reading it. Hmm...I'm sure I did. Then again maybe I didn't. I suppose I'll give it a go and see if anything seems familiar. 

I'm still going to read and review a short story this week. Book review work depends on how ahead I get with my reading. Plus, I'm not sure what book I'm inspired to review. I'm playing with the idea of reviewing Shopgirl or On Writing. However, I've been reading so many cool graphic novels maybe I should review one of those. Curse my indecisiveness! I guess the problem is that I have too many ideas. At this moment I'm leaning towards On Writing, because some ideas just appeared in my brain while writing this. We shall see...

WOOT!!! You can do it! Man, I wish I had the time to read even half of that amount of books.

(And omg, I remember sobbing when I read Number The Stars. I've never forgotten how powerful that book was.)

Best wishes for a healthy and happy new year, hun!!!
