Guess what, everyone! I actually have time to READ FOR FUN!!!!!!! This is a most shocking, really, really awesome development! As an English Major (and prolly just as a college student in general), I never actually have the time to read just for the heck of it. I always have something else to do, or something else to read. Honestly, the last time I read and finished (the keyword here being finished) a book just for fun was during the summer! And know what's really sad? I can't even remember what the book was! (I take that back....I think it was the new book by The Oatmeal).
But, I'm actually reading a book for fun during school! This is very, very exciting :) I mean, yes, I did read Endgame last week, but that was only because I was able to finish it in the two-hour time slot I had in the Writing Center. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have read it! This time, though, I'm actually reading a novel....like a whole book, and it's really nice. It's Hannibal by Thomas Harris. Once I finish this, I'll have read all the books in the Hannibal Lecter Trilogy (Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal) , plus the prologue novel Hannibal Rising. I'll be sure to post updates about it later. Right now, it's a little slow, but I've found from experience that Thomas Harris novels tend to do that: they start off really slowly, and suddenly grab you by the throat and drag you through a whole plot of horror and thrill. Sooo worth the wait!
