Finals week begins tomorrow. I have a 16-20 page paper to write, and sixteen portfolios to grade. Not so bad, really. I have almost survived my first semester of grad school!
I’ve been reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and it is wonderful.
My mom has this horrible habit of reading the ends of books once the tension gets to be too much. I am a lot like my mom in many ways; luckily this is NOT one of them. However, I do have a habit of counting things while I read. Chapters left to go; pages left in a chapter. And I’m afraid, in counting the number of chapters left in this book (22), I stumbled across hints I wish I didn’t have.
But, still enjoying the book immensely.
