Tonight’s topic is by request of Book Boy.
He wants me to tell everyone that he finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire tonight – book #4! He took it to school today and was almost finished when he got home – 60 pages left of a 735 page book. I told him if dinner/shower/homework went well, he could stay up as late as he needed to so that he could finish the book.
He finished at 9:30. And of course, he wanted to start the next book right away. I told him he could read for 10 minutes, but I doubt if he makes it that long. I know he’s going to be tired in the morning, but we rarely let him read that late on a school night, and he’s been working on this book on and off since May. I just hated the idea of telling him he had to wait until tomorrow.
