speed reading.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows showed up on my doorstep courtesy of and USPS at 11:30am. I started reading the book at 12:00-ish, and I finished it (minus pauses for feeding the kids, doing dishes, changing diapers, etc.) at 7:00pm, all 759 pages of it. I think that's a new record for me.

Robin commented on her amazement at the fact that I can read a book of that page count in seven hours, especially one that's not written in my native language. Truth be told, it probably would have taken me twice as long to read it in German at this point.
