I am capable of reading books while I read books. Because THAT’S necessary…. reading while you read. (*Enter XZIBIT: “Yo, dawg, I heard you like to read books. So we got you this thing that allows you to read books while you read books, so now you can read books while you read…”).
Enough. I have a problem. I am aware.
So the PROBLEM is, when I’m trying to get ANYTHING but reading done, I just end up reading again anyway. Maybe it’s a disorder? I don’t know, but I was looking to add more books to my reading list, and (Mind you, I’m still in the middle of reading Dust & Decay) and I came across this book called Skellig by David Almond. Then I thought to myself, “Hey, this would be a great one to read to the kids!” SO, I went ahead and bought it on my Kindle and read like HALF the book to them in one sitting. My five year old was thoroughly engrossed with it. We’ll probably read the other half at bedtime tonight.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a really quick read, this is the book for you. It starts out as a bit of a mystery (a kid finds a dude with WINGS in his garage…) and pretty much continues on from there. REALLY interesting, and REALLY hard to stop once you’ve started (as I said, we read HALF the book).
It’s not too long, and it reads really easily. So, if you don’t have a lot of time, but you still want to get away from reality and slip into a magical world for just an hour or maybe two, I suggest picking this book up and finishing it in one or two sittings. It won’t take you long and you will THOROUGHLY enjoy yourselves! 🙂
Now, excuse me, because I’m going to get back to Dust & Decay. And this time, no more interruptions!
