One-Chapter-Wonder Finally Finishes

Well finally, 6 months and 22 days later I can finally announce...

I have finished reading The Help. Ha!

No, it didn't actually take me 4,944 hours to read that book. I re-picked it up 2 days ago and finished it today from where I put it down all those months and months ago.

I am excited because I am a self confessed "One-Chapter-Wonder". No Joke. Doesn't matter how much I love the first chapter and have intentions of finishing. I always put it down and don't go back. Weird, I know, but what can I say? It's just what I do.

I purposely left it on my bed side table, so it would glare at me Read me, Read me, READ MEEEEE. I finished all my work the other day, sanding, painting, and delivering Christmas Stars and thought... I am gonna read some more of that glaring at me book. So I did! And I couldn't put it down.

The funny thing was, when I read the last line and looked up. I realised that I was still in my home. Everything was just as it was before, but for some reason I felt like I had just come back from a huge adventure- like I had actually lived through the story I was reading!

If you haven't seen it, or read it. I highly recommend it. Was brilliant.
