Staying Up Late Reading

June 10, 2008

I stayed up far too late finishing Comfort Food. Twice, actually. On my second reading, the one that was going to make the review come together beautifully in my head, I plowed through and read to the very end, fighting to keep my eyes open, because I was enjoying the flawed but earnest characters and tasty prose so very much. And really, that’s the best thing you can say about any book!

So, now I am sleepy, getting ready to face my day (and get the review written). I am also thinking that I should make an official designation for books, both assigned reviews and ones I read on my own, that I stay up far too late reading. With some clever name. Which I am too sleepy to think of at present.

There is also the flip-side. The cuddly, comforting books I turn to when I’m having trouble sleeping. Re-reads of childhood favorites, like The Westing Game or anything by James Herriot.

Update: Announcing the first ever

Cinderella Awards

for a book that kept me up way past my bedtime! More to come, and possibly an awards ceremony.
