Same and same.
The novel was away for the weekend, so it didn't get read at all.
I did, however, keep reading Elizabeth the Queen and STILL I am at just under 50%! I'm reading it on my Kindle, so I can't tell actual page numbers (I checked out the ebook from the library, and keeping my Kindle's wifi turned off so the book stays on it even though the library's copy has been returned from my Amazon account). According to Amazon it is around 700 pages long. I've read longer books before in much shorter time. I can only assume that the printing on those 700 pages is like that of the Lord's Prayer written on a grain of rice. And then, getting weary of it and reading other books in between doesn't help. :)
