As I said in my 10 Things post, I'm trying to read a book a month, and this month's selection is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I was getting a little bummed because the beginning of the book, in my opinion... frankly... sucks.
But I promised myself to get to page 50 before I "gave up" officially. Besides, people kept telling me that you have to get that far before it grabs you.
Okay, I'm on that bus now only I got grabbed on page 38. Here's a summary:
Pages 1 - 37: approximately 19 days - yes, it took me 19 days to read 37 pages.
Pages 38 - 183: approximately 8 hours (over 2 days).
Excuse me, but I need to get back to my book........
