I confused myself with the titles of the posts, so I’m going back in a sec and changing the ones on the other entries, and titling this after the hours that just were, not the hour that’s coming up.

Title of book(s) read this hour: Travels in the Scriptorium – Paul Auster
Number of books read since you started: 1
Pages read: 108
Running total of pages read since you started: 190
Amount of time spent reading: 1 hr 10 mins
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 2 hrs 21 mins
Other participants visited: none
Mini-challenges participated in: none
Cups of tea/coffee: 3 cups of tea (strawberry-flavoured black tea. Not as nice as the other one, but tolerable enough. Let’s not mention the bathroom breaks. Tea is lovely, but it does pass through you quick as all that. ;D And that was TMI. My apologies.)

So, I finished my first book and I quite liked it. I’m not sure what I was expecting from it, but it was a little creepy towards the end. I’ll have to read more by Auster, though, as this gave me a taste for more. Maybe the New York trilogy next?

    I totally agree with you on the bathroom break statement, lol!! I’ve had two huge mugs of tea already. ;) I’ve been curious about Travels in the Scriptorium, and I like creepy books, so that’s another one for the TBR!
