Some Books Take Longer To Read

"Mommy, how many pages are there in the book you're reading?"

"Oh, over seven hundred pages."

"Wow! And you're on chapter 50!"

"Yes."

To tell you the truth, it has taken me about a year to read this book.

I started it last December, and only read a few chapters. Honestly, I just couldn't get into the story.

Weird.

Could it be the new author selected to finish the epic fantasy series?

Possibly.

I usually read books in a week or in a month. A year?  No.

During the summer holidays, I picked up the novel and once again, I lost interest.

Sigh. Will I ever finish this book? This is ridiculous!

I need to get over this, and move on.

So, last week before bedtime, I would read every night.

Finally, the storyline was more appealing. And I couldn't put the hardcover down!

On Monday, I completed the whole book. Yay!

I guess some books take longer to read.

No worries, I started the next saga. I wonder how long it will take me this time.
