Do you ever get into a really good book and then find you can't put it down until the bitter end? If you wonder why there have been no posts for a few days, then let me just say that I started reading a really good book called, Odd Thomas. In a nutshell it's about a guy who sees dead people. He is a fascinating character that is simple and yet so complex. That's about all I can say without giving away the story. (Number 1 pet peeve is when someone gives away the ending to a book.) I ended up finishing the book at 12:30 last night and then I could not go to sleep. I needed to chat with someone about what I had just read, but
1) Jason was asleep,
2) He is going to read the book and so I couldn't wake him up and tell him about it
and 3) Anyone I know that had read the book is smart and asleep at 12:30 at night.
So, I tossed and turned for about an hour thinking about the book I had finished and wishing I had the second one in the series.
Now I'm sleepy and want to take a nap, but need to be a good mom and not sleep away the day. Maybe I'll take the kids to the library to pick up some books...
