A book! A book!

Would you believe - I actually read a book! I didn't really have time to read a book, but once I start, I can't quit. Odd as it sounds, I probably set a record - it took me 3 days to finish it. Usually I finish a book in one sitting, but I just couldn't do that this time. Certain things override pleasure, such as study and sleep. ;)

Incidentally, I bought the book last weekend on my girl's day out. My hubby, who I abandoned to entertain the boy-child, decided to go all romantic on me, and when I returned home with the book in hand, he just stared at me and said, "No, you didn't." It took a second to realize that lying on the coffee table in front of me was another copy of the book he bought just to be sweet.

I read his book, instead of mine. :) I can return the copy I bought later.

In case you're wondering, the book is Brisingr. Not the best-written series I've ever read (can't touch Harry Potter or Sword of Truth), but considering the author was 15 when he wrote the first book, it's pretty good stuff. Perfectly enjoyable fantasy fiction - a nice break from the monotony of textbook studies.

Speaking of studies, I should quit rambling and get back to it. I'll leave you with a scrapbook page I did of my nephew, Branden. I don't see him much, and he is really growing up fast.
