This Just In

Look what I found while surfing the interwebs:

100. Read an entire book in one day.

Turns out there's one more to that list. I did find it disconcerting that the list stopped at 99. So:

Yes: The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty. I finished it at 2:00a, alone in the house. I was terrified to go to sleep. The film remains the scariest movie I've ever seen.

That's what my husband says! About the movie, he didn't read the book. I think I have seen it but you would think I would remember that one wouldn't you?

I used to read complete books in one day, then I had my third and fourth child (at the same time) and that was the end of that!

(Oh and you have to have a story to tell! How about a first kiss?!)

I think I read that book in one sitting. It was more than 30 years ago when I lived in a small bed sit and the bathroom was out in the garden. I was too scared to go out there:-). No way would I see the movie.

You reminded me that I read The Color Purple in one day. I had forgotten about that.
