It Feels Like Homework

I’m reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
A recommendation from Carol over at Tall Tales fromKansas
I take her recommendations seriously. She hasn’t steered me wrong yet.

Unfortunately I didn’t realize how long it was when I downloaded it onto Tablet so I didn’t pace myself. (I only borrow books from the library; I’m too cheap to buy them.)

I got an email saying I have to return it by tomorrow and since there’s a wait list I can’t renew unless I go to the end of the line.
I have 188 pages to go!
And Tablet just beeped at me telling me his battery is low!

I haven’t felt this pressured since I was in school!


  1. awwww…hope you get it finished somehow…soon!

    PS…I just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain…by Garth Stein. If you haven't read it yet…it was sad but oh so sweet.

  2. I can relate! The last two "really" good books I read, I had to finish them by locating used paperbacks.

  3. Oh No!....Hope you finish reading it :-)


I appreciate your comments!
