Hello everyone! I hope that you're all just fine this morning - I certainly am! :) Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing so far.
Well, Mareena and I watched the ninth episode of 'The Exorcist', which aired on Friday night, December 9th. This show is so good, and the season finale airs on Friday night, December 16th! Since this particular episode is being advertised as the season finale and not the actual series finale, that must mean there will possibly be a second season for the show, right? I honestly hope that the show comes back for a second season, even though the ratings are rather low.
Anyway, I'm still working through an amazing backlog of crossword puzzles and sudoku puzzles from the newspaper. Despite that though, I have also done some sum-doku puzzles from my puzzle book collection as well. So far, I've done approximately 35 sudoku and crossword puzzles from the newspaper, although I have also done some sum-doku puzzles from my puzzle books, too! I haven't really finished an entire sum-doku puzzle book from my collection since Saturday, December 3rd - I have been working through partial puzzles from the moderately difficult to extremely difficult levels!
So, as regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was Shutter Island: A Novel by Dennis Lehane, which I finished on Monday, December 5th! Although Mareena saw the 2010 movie last year starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo, I wanted to read the book first, before watching the movie. I actually really enjoyed reading the book, it kept me guessing right up until the end!
After starting another book called Endangered: Your Child in a Hostile World by Johann Christophe Arnold on Monday, December 5th, I just wasn't getting into the book that much. I had received the book through the afternoon mail on Monday, November 28th and I have to say that the book wasn't quite what I was expecting; it was pretty good, but I had a little trouble getting into the story. Since this particular book is actually non-fiction and I had only read about 12 pages, I decided that I wanted to read another book that was already in my collection: A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger, a true crime book about The Boston Stranglings.
I actually started reading A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger on Tuesday, December 6th. According to Goodreads - as of today, December 11th - I've actually read 152 pages out of 288 in A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger; or approximately 52 percent. Since my copy of A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger is actually 266 pages, reading 152 pages means that I have read approximately 57 percent of the story so far.
