Last week was almost a disaster. The Lord of the Rings is divided in to three parts. Unless we’re referring to the anthology in which I am reading them. It is divided in to six parts. I didn’t realise that and found myself 160 pages from finishing The Fellowship of the Ring on Friday. My heart sank. I was about to lose the challenge, and all for a stupid mistake. I thought about graduate school and all the reading I had to do through that time. Then, resolve strengthened, I finished the bloody book in two days. Yes, that’s right. I read half of The Fellowship of the Ring in two days just to complete last week’s challenge book. My brain *still* hurts.
I’ve moved on to The Two Towers now and am enjoying it, particularly since I don’t have to read like a mad woman. If nothing else, I have it easy by comparison.
