Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

I've been neglecting my blog for the last few days. I've been in a race to read the J.K. Rowling book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and to finish it before the movie starts Friday.

This might be a simple task for many, but for me it means saying no to other things just to get the time to read. Usually saying no means saying no to other people who are attempting to get me to spend my time in other ways.

Tonight I simply laid my foot down, and said no!
I will not go out tonight - I didn't say why I just said I didn't feel like it - which I don't.
But if I had said that finishing up a book was even part of the reason I doubt I would have heard the last of it.

I'm going to end this post here so I can get back to my reading.
I have another book waiting to be read right after I finish up with Goblet of Fire. Team of Rivals - The political genius of Abraham Lincoln, by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

I watched her on CSPAN this weekend, and knew I had to pick up her book.

The wife is already asleep, and it's just me, two warm cats sitting at my feet, and a Harry Potter book to read on this cold cold night in November.
