Okay, it's almost the last day of the month and I'm only on page 200 or so. A third of the way through the book. Perhaps December was not the best month for me to choose to participate. Too much holiday stuff.

Anyway, I can't say I'm loving it so far. I have some issues with the idea of these incredibly intellectual and worldly people believing in vampires so quickly and without question. I think most intelligent people would scoff at the events that were taking place instead of pursuing them as some sort of dark mystery. I really hate the jumps between the narratives. It's irritating. In any case, I will continue to read it because I have this "finish what you started" mentality with so many things.

January is out for me. There is no way I can suffer through "Dune" when I have a pile of "to be read" books that are far more enticing. Many of which were Christmas gifts.

Good luck! I'll be back in February if you're still around.

Finish it and let me know what you think of the end. I will post my review this weekend sometime. Not a failure. December is a difficult month for anyone with a real life... which I haven't got.lol


I'm a stay at home mother of 2 and have a bit of free time here and there, plus, I read to my kids.... no nightmares, so far.


I've started Dune, but haven't made it very far into it. It's a difficult read for me because I have a hard time picturing the characters and the scenery. I have to be one of the only people in the world who hasn't seen the movie (just about 5 minutes of it). Honestly, if I'd seen the movie, I couldn't read the book anyway. I would picture actors and sets instead of what the author is actually describing. Wish me luck!!
