Finished a BOOK!

I know, I know! It's insane...I finished a blanket AND a book. The last book I finished was the third book of Harry Potter, way way way back in the day when they released the forth Harry Potter. I am a strange sort, I hate cliff hangers so...when the Harry Potter series was still being released, I would not read the second book until the third book was released, then I waited to finish the third book for the forth, and so on....but, I got to the fourth book and stopped.

Needless to say, the Harry Potter series is STILL on my list of things to finish, and surprisingly enough, I am still oblivious to the end of the series. If you know, don't spill the beans around me!

To ease myself back into the world, and I guess to help me with my lack of finishing old favorite novel kept creeping into mind. Watchers by Dean Koontz. I remembered reading the book when I was in high school and loved it. My sweet dog, has brought me such comfort as of late, it made me start thinking about the brilliant, genetically engineered dog, Einstein.

A brief mention to my wonderful dad about the urge to read the book again got him sifting through his large inventory of books. He could not find Watchers, so he actually ran out to a used book store and bought the book and brought it to my house. Like I said, he's a wonderful man!

Maybe it was the guilt he went to so much trouble to actually get the book in my hands that drove me to sit down for the first couple pages, but like a knitter fascinated with every skein of yarn they can get their hands on I was soon hooked. I actually finished the book today. Only took me a couple between knitting last minute Christmas gift fits (which I actually finished a couple!).

So,, where's that darn Harry Potter book?
