Bogged Down, Down...

     Do you ever get stuck while reading one book?  I'm stuck reading The  Sorceress; The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott.  This is the third in the series and I am enjoying the story-I just haven't had lots of extra time to read so this is what I've been reading since the beginning of October.  My only extra time has been reading in bed but by I've been getting to bed so late I'm falling asleep after only one chapter!  I feel a little bad for this book and it's not even the books fault!  My dreams have been more exciting as I've dreamed about the twins, Perenelle and Nicholas, Williams Shakespeare and the Saracen Knight!  It does make for some crazy dreaming!!

     When I began this book I thought it was the conclusion (no idea why...) and then I heard the other day that the fourth one, The Necromancer, is out and when I checked out Michael Scott's website I see it is actually a series of six!  I've got a ways to go.  In September I did finish two other series; Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson.  I can still feel good about that but for  now I'm going to have to read every spare minute now that the play and all my dear out-of-town visitors are gone! 

     In a week and a half I need to have finished Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five for my bookclub.  I need to read three books to finish up my Fahrenheit 451 challenge and read a book to prepare for an author's guest post coming in November!        Can it all be done?  Yes, if I can just get past The Sorceress!  I'm anxious to get to my lunch time to see if Perenelle (The Sorceress) makes it off of Alcatrez Island with Scatty's and Joan of Arc's help!  Finishing this book will give me another tally on my Reading From My Own Shelves Book Challenge!  Another good thing!  Cheer me on as I climb out of the rut...

  1. Good luck on that lunchtime reading. I went to the public library on my lunch hour, which means I am even more behind than before!

  2. I sometimes get stuck with my reading, too--some books, even if they aren't bad, just seem to slow everything down.

  3. I know what you're saying. I got bogged down on Moby Dick and haven't got out of the rut yet. Better soon I have a bunch of good books waiting.

  4. I hear ya about the rut! I am finally crawling out of mine . . . slowly! I'm actually on The Girl Who Played With Fire and plan to hopefully finish tomorrow, then on to the final one! I can't wait to touch base once I'm done with it to compare notes!
