Happy weekend to you all!
Sadly I am still on this 5th Harry Potter book. I didn't read for 2 days though, as we celebrated my brothers' 50th on Saturday and I was hungover Sunday. :-)  I really hope this will be the last time you see this book, even though it is good. With a holiday weekend here, it's iffy to be honest...

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!
Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from page 556, so I did get 300 pages since last week! That's a normal size book.  :-)

  4. sometimes when I get stuck in a book for a long time, even if I am reading, it really makes me feel like I'm in a reading slump. I start my judging for Cybils this week so expect a lot of nonfiction book reviews from me for the next two months. My Friday Quotes

  5. 300 pages certainly is a normal length book. Well done for persevering. I'm loving the snippets from Harry Potter.

  11. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you, Freda! I, for one, truly appreciate our Canadian friends/neighbors, as I think most Americans do, regardless of what the government is doing. So sorry about that.
