Readathon Status #4 + mini-review

It's five minutes past midnight and I've just finished my 4th book. I started reading Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes, but found it way too slow and put it back down again. Instead I got started on Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time which sucked me right in and turned out to be an enjoyable fast paced read. It's incredibly fascinating and very well written and from the point of view of an autistic boy - and he's very smart. Not only did I learn and finally understand some mathematical problems I've never been able to wrap my mind around before, but I also think I've learned a fair bit about how life works when you're autistic like Christopher and what you need from the surrounding world.

I'm pretty tired and think I'll just call it a night as I'm rather unsure what to read next anyway, so I'll probably be back in 8 hours time :) Happy reading!

  1. Wow - 4 books! That's great! Hope to see you again after your "nap". I usually sleep for a bit myself, and try to join in again for the last hour or 2.
