Numbers 1, 2, and 5 were all less than 300 pages - I can read those in three or four hours.

"The ethical slut".. :hehe:

I've actually read a quite a few, but they are so trashy, I'm embarrassed to list them. I'll also at some point this year become homeless (so to speak) and will be taking a totally new direction in life (as yet unknown), so the likelihood I'll reach 50 is very slim, even though I've read about 6 so far.

Just finished my latest book tonight. It was called "Heaven's Shadow". The title should have been enough to convince me not to read it... :doh:
