Too distracted to blog

A lovely French boy lent me his copy of The Da Vinci Code.

Although I admit to reading and usually enjoying almost anything (car manuals can be dull, but are a better option than nothing to read when stuck in the car!), I had low expectations.

So when I began it last night, I didn't expect to be hooked - and freaked out - so quickly.

In short, I would blog tonight (that 100 things list is an excellent idea and I do want to do it), but I'd rather read my book.

I should also note, in my defence, that The Trouser has forbidden me reading it at bedtime. It gives me the heebie-jeebies - I spend time wailing "I'm all creeped out! Put the light on!", or scrunching my eyes up tight and tensing my body up as I try to think of anything but the creepiness.

This is not the first time this has happened to me - Stephen King's Bag of Bones had a similar effect on me (and rightly so, it is a creepy book!). Yes, I am highly suggestible.

So while there's daylight I'll be reading... For the next couple of days, anyway. Reminds me of the bad old days when I was too busy reading prescribed texts (let alone the secondary readings!) to do things like check my email (impossible for me nowadays) or do the dishes. Ah, they weren't all bad then...

Crikey, I was thinking of buying that or "Angels and Demons" also by the same author as a gift because they are on the top 100 list. Apparently a number of tourists go visiting the sites mentioned in the "Da Vinci Code". Last book that hooked me was "Cane and Abel". The book that made me keep the light on was "People of the Lie".

I got Da Vinci Code for my birthday, but I got totally bored with it. That must mean there's no point in us recommending books to each other...
