Last night. I only got through 200 pages though, that's no where near my usual number of pages, school drained my brain of reading endurance. dead

Almost everyday for the past week (was required for school) and last night for pleasure reading.

I'm guessing 50 pound, 1957 paged nursing books don't count.. Cause that would be pretty much everyday.
The last time I read an actual novel of sorts was maybe 5 months ago. ;~; Pathetic.
Oh, the book in question was 1Q84 by Murakami Haruki. Can't tell if I like it or not yet, I've only read 30 pages.

I made the mistake of buying 1Q84 on my kindle. I guess I'm super old-fashioned because I have yet to finish reading anything on that device besides Mindy Kaling's Are My Friends Hanging Out Without me? (And Other Concerns.). That was a while back. I'm not liking it as much as I enjoyed Norwegian Wood or A Wild Sheep Chase, or even The Wind-up Bird Chronicle though. Good luck on that, Karon! :3

As for when I last sat down/read? About a week ago. I've been tapping into my melancholy state and absorbing the depression that oozes from Thomas Hardy. My newest Hardy novel is Far From the Madding Crowd. While I really liked Tess, I have to say that I enjoyed his writing best in this novel.

I read a classic called Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Even though was quite salacious I found it to be interesting seeing how messed up the main character is and how he has a huge fetish for girls between 9-14 and calls them "nymphets."

Like a month ago, maybe. It was The Power of Six. And I loved it.

I'm reading the second Eragon books and it's so hard to get through it. Nothing is catching my attention just yet. The first one took me a while too.

A couple of you have mentioned 1Q84. I may have to go check it out. (:

This afternoon, actually. I finished 'The Possibility of Love at First Sight' by Jennifer E Smith.
Despite the title, it was a very good read. smile

Yesterday, I re-read 'The Fault in our Stars' (SIGNED COPY) by John Green.

And now, I just started 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' for probably the fiftieth time.

Well if you mean a physical book and not a virtual one then its been about... 1~3 weeks
Virtually I read all the time almost constantly. Strange considering I don't like reading physically none

Yesterday on the bus
The Runelords by David Farland
It's definitely more interesting and fun than I originally would have thought.

Now I kind of want to be the sum of all men.... *cough*

Well, I spent two days reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. It was so good that I'm hoping to read the rest of the series when I can.
