So I cheated on this one too. But today I finished listening to the audiobook of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - JK Rowling. This one was better to me than the first one and I'm looking forward to moving to book 3 soon.
Sometimes listening to an audiobook really gets me through the day. There's been too much drama going on lately and it's nice to be able to focus my attention elsewhere. So even though this one is still just * * *, it's also gotten me through a tough past two days at work.
Thanks Harry Potter, a valuable diversion you have been.
