I've made a boo-boo.
I challenged myself to finish the Harry Potter books before the last movie came out. That's in about 19 days. It seemed easy at the time, I couldn't put the first three books down and so I read them quickly. I thought for sure that speed would stay with me through to the end so I took a break, telling myself I would read numbers 4 and 5 in June and somehow miraculously read 6 and 7 in July. I guess I didn't realize that Harry comes out on the 15th and I'm still stuck in book 4. I think my main problem is that I am starting to remember the movies; I have never read books where I have the movie first. I think it has something to do with already knowing what is going to happen, cause I can tell you, when I want to know what is happening I fly through books!
My second problem - my dumb book fell apart! Do you know how hard it is to want to pick up a book where the pages keep falling out? I eventually solved this problem by removing half of the book, but still.
It's time to buckle down and get reading. I don't actually think I can do it, but if I do it then that would be amazing. Not to mention, a huge boost for my overall "read 50 books" goal. So...it's off to my little room, locked away, reading.
