Abducted By Blog Hop 8.19

Went to the library today...

Paid my $3.90 late fees for the two audio books I kept 2 weeks past due...

And then I checked out 4 more!!!

Yup, that is right! I'm totally ambitious! 

With those 4 books and my daily cheer from my cheerleader (love you Holly) I'm feeling so motivated! I know I can still complete my challenge so don't count me out yet. 

after I write my review for Forever Odd I'll be at
17 more books : 19 more days

But I wanted to take a quick break today and answer the two questions out in the blog community!

For the Blog Hop hosted by Crazy for Books the question was: 

"What is the longest book you've read?"

My answer:

The unabridged edition of The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.

And yes, this book is my go to book when I feel the need to distinguish myself.

I'll be at book club and we'll be talking about books and I'll say; (in the poshest accent I can muster) "Well, when I was reading the full 1312 page of Count of Monte Cristo I learned that Alexandre Dumas really liked eating grapes." - or something like that!

Now, over at Follow Fridays hosted by Parajunkee the question was:

"If you could write yourself a part in a book, 
what book would it be and what role would you play?" 

 My answer: 

 Harry Potter of course! I would be a slightly misfit Hufflepuff who becomes Neville's love interest!

I've loved Neville since the beginning, but come on! Have you seen how Hot that kids become???

Great choice. Neville was one of my favorites.

Hahaha. We were just talking about Neville at work. I've been meaning to read the Count of Mote Cristo, buuuuuut, now I may hold off even longer! My longest was Gone with the wind and that was only about 1000 pages. I'm a little scared just thinking about it.

And you can TOTALLY do it! Read read read!!!!

I have about five bucks in library fines. But I'm moving, so is it bad if I don't pay them as long as I return all my books?

I'm hoping my local library has a "Forgiveness Day", then maybe I can show my face there again. I know their break room has my wanted poster tacked to the soda machine.
