    Yikes. I really do want to start reading again, but it won't be this time. Sorry, I won't be able to attend tomorrow.

    I started the book and found no interest or enjoyment in the first few chapters so I decided to stop reading. Maybe the next book I will dig more! :)

    Don't worry, it's short! If you run out of time, just read every other paragraph (just kidding)!

      Haha!! I'll try!! I'm sucked into the last twilight book right now. But I'll put it aside when I get my hands on this book finally! I swung by the library last night right as they were closing so I'll try again today to pick up the book.
