Two milestones today:

     Finished reading my 100th book of 2010 today. Sure makes a difference in the count when I have a few Young Adult novels in there, instead of solely 400-600 page doorstops all the time!

     This week was a challenge for writing, because I got rolling Sunday, had shopping Monday evening, managed some more Tuesday, couldn't do any with women's group Wednesday, but despite that, I got moving again tonight...AND I FINISHED DELARUN SECTION 5!!1!!! I'm so happy about that. I gets to treat myself to a movie this weekend and junk food and enjoy that there's only one section (and epilogue) left for the novel! Plenty of editing needed for section 5 of course, but for this weekend it will be celebrating and gearing up to get back into book 5 again. =D

I guessed as much, since it came right after your e-mail.

I want to go see 'Unstoppable' if the weather permits. It opens today and got pretty good reviews on 'Rotten Tomatoes' and since it's a high-adrenaline action flick (with Denzel Washington), just the sort of movie I like, it makes a good reward for finishing section 5 of 'Delarun.'

Congrats on getting through section 5 on your book, and reading 100 books is awesome. I don't know how many I've read but I know it's not that many.

Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy your movie and junk food. *grin* You deserve it!

Thanks! The movie was a lot of fun, though driving through the snowstorm to/from (and nearly getting stuck in their parking lot) wasn't.

Yes, I don't usually get through so many books in a year, having some short ones in there helps. (Plane trips and layovers are good too!)
