Arrived at the beach yesterday afternoon, and much thanks to the beach gods as the temperature is actually nice and not overwhelming hot like back home. The Hubs isn’t coming down to the end of this week, but I’m down here for the full 3 weeks. 🙂
I actually got quite a bit of reading done last night- finishing up Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- I forgot that Fleur briefly meets Bill in this book and shows some interest in him. I really love how layered J.K. Rowling’s books are- the end of book 4 looms large in how book 7 plays out. I am just so in awe of Rowling’s writing. Cedric’s death in GoF is so much more tragic in the book, and Fudge goes from preening politician to obstinate ass in just a few pages. Which of course sets up book 5 and the introduction of the villain I dislike the most- Delores Umbridge.
Also started Dog On It last night, and I’m probably about half way done since I was the first one up this morning. Is there anything better than reading in the ocean breeze? So far I’m really enjoying the book, which is told from Chet the dog’s perspective. It’s a bit Bunnicula for the adult crowd- and I still read that series, usually adding one to my Readathon Pile O’ Books.
Should be hitting the beach in a bit, and then I need to take a nap so I can stay up late to try to get into Pottermore. I know, I’m a nerd. I’m especially a Harry Potter nerd. I have made peace with this.
