Dance Macabre

I am finally on the last few chapters of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I've been tackling it since buying it the night it came out, but have not had the time to sit down and really get through it. It's an easy read, but when it's just 15 minutes here and there, it can be tough to really make progress.

But today I actually had the time at home to sit there and read. And read I did. A couple hundred pages and I'm nearing the end too quickly. Yes! Too quickly! I don't want this to be over. Finally a book that had conquered what I dislike so much about stories-they end. This was a series that got longer and more complex as it went on and the books were never a bore for me. Even Sweet Valley University got to be a little much as they went on. Yes, we know they're identical twins with differing personalities so stop insulting our intelligence by telling us the same things over and over. And then books I love that are not a series just break mah heart. Summer Sisters, why must you end?!

I will still refrain from talking about anything specific from HP7 as many people have not yet read it, but I will say that I got to read about something that I really like:)

I guess I should go finish it...

I spent a lot of the month of June in my sewing room listening to the 52-hour audiobook version of Atlas Shrugged. When it was over, I didn't know what to do with myself. The sewing room was so quiet. And now I'm looking for another audiobook to fill the void, but I prefer reeeeeally long ones.

Let me go ahead and add that I was also sewing, not just sitting there.

I like the ending and love Mrs Weasleys turn of phrase ha ha ha
