Mary did purchase this, by the way, and I'm fighting my way through it. I may not finish it, but won't have to, thanks to the spoilers y'all have posted out here. This book is hilarious, by the way.

I was livid, I was reading someone's live journal and he/she didn't put the spoilers behind a cut - I read the sentence before I realized what it was about. I hate that.

Finish the book. No matter what others have said here, it's worth it.

I refuse to be ashamed or embarassed about enjoying the books - no matter how many people make fun of me.

I'm just having a little trouble getting into it. The first chapter kind of drags, for one thing. For another, I've had so many other things on my mind lately that it's a little tough to get into.

Why ever would you be ashamed or embarassed? I went to the book party at my local Borders and I by God went to the tables and did the crafts with the kids. I made the sparkly wand thingie. I made a paper bag of magic. I scored a dragon face mask. I enjoyed it. Because even if I am someone's meemaw, I read what I read and that's that.

Of course, since I was reading adult stuff when I was little (a history of the New Orleans bordello industries is one I found again about ten years ago, and it was really as down and dirty as I recalled it from when I was six or so) I am not very ageist about what people read. I regularly buy YA fiction or picture books Just For Me. When my children were still at home, I would let them read whatever they felt comfortable reading, as long as I got to read it first. :-)

I read a lot of my father's books (his favorites were Rex Stout and Georges Simenon, not to mention Ogden Nash) when I was young enough to have Dad with me (he died when I was almost 11). Highlights for Children is the first thing I pick up in the doctor's office. (Just gotta catch up on Goofus and Gallant and the Timbertoes, all old friends from childhood.) I can spend hours in an antique store reading classic boys' literature, and enjoy it as much now at almost 50 as I did when my age had one digit in it.

That's interesting. Of course, I just kind of devoured the book and begged for more. But then, I am a sucker for these characters, I just enjoy reading about them.

I'm just having a hard time getting into anything besides work these days, and even that's hard to do. I wish I had the kind of time that I had when I wasn't working and didn't have to because I was getting paid anyway, but I think I'd be bored out of my skull within a week.

I can't stop reading/writing. Even when I'm working. Of course the fact that I can read a page in 20 seconds probably has something to do with it. And the other fact that it's how I cope with stress (when I'm not doing something even more regrettable, like spending money to do that :-)
