I finished Iron Council before bed last night, a week after I started reading it. I've been keeping myself pretty busy, so I only had a couple of hours a day to read. In a way, that was better than my usual preferred marathon reading. It gave me more time to absorb what I was reading, and built up more anticipation for the next night. I have to say that over all, I really enjoyed the book.
I have no lack of reading material right now. There are 4 SteamPunk magazines still awaiting my attention, plus a collection of Victorian fairy tales, and a Hawaiian mythology book that is the size of a good dictionary. All that, plus I'm expecting new issues of Faerie Magazine and Simply Beads. I doubt I'll find myself bored anytime soon!
I'd just started my night's work on Locked Away when Chris came home and distracted me with something called a "Chai X-Treme." Now that I'm hyped up on caffeine and sugar, it's time to get back to beading!
