It has certainly been a while! I’ve finished two books since we last saw an update on this here website. I’m officially done with the tales of Harry Potter, I’m not sure it really ended on an ending but it wasn’t a bad story. It’s one of those tales that does somewhat seem like it would be better suited for a many seasons long television show or continuous story. The universe was uniquely presented without getting very in depth, leaving much to the imaginations of the reader. A neat trick and something I’ll need to keep in mind.
Finished the last book two days ahead of schedule.

I kept above my goal for nearly the entire time on the last book, you’ll notice that I’ve made the older lines thinner to help make the latest progress obvious. If you click the image you can see it larger and it will be much easier to decipher. Below is the data of the Pages Per Minute, you can see that on day 3 I had an exquisitely slow reading speed but I still managed to get more reading done that day than any day but the first day (because of the time I spent reading).
Overall my reading speeds are starting to balance out nicely. Though my next book is going to be much more difficult to read in time and as efficiently.
I’m currently diving into Stephen King’s “Under the Dome: A Novel” and I must say that it is a dramatically different writing style. The characters thus far are largely difficult to like and I’m not sure if the goal is for them to be as such. Though I am only about a hundred pages in, he has killed off more people than the last 5 books I’ve read did in their entirety. Lets hope the population of that small town can survive for the next 9/10th’s of the story.
Once I make it over this mountain I’ll officially be moving onto smaller books for a bit. Give myself a rest :).
