The Cannonball Starts!

Here's a very important tip for all you Cannonballers:

Never wait too long to write a book review. If you can, write it immediately after you've finished the book. Otherwise, you'll get lazy as I did and then have the books pile up so that you'll have 5 reviews to write and you can't even remember how you felt about the first few books.

So that's where I'm at. I've begun the reading strong, but since I was home and surrounded by people, I couldn't get into the writing mood. Now have to get myself there again, and it's a pain, because I revel in the laziness of winter.

So far I've read 3 books--two excellent, one quite horrible. The one I'm currently on is a massive bore and I'm forcing myself to get through it quickly, even though I want to put it down every couple of pages. But I must persevere. I've also been reading a fifth on my iPod while at airports and such, so I must make myself finish it.

And through all, I think I'm going to be doing reviews of Breaking Dawn. Because obviously, I hate myself. But I admit that the Twilight reviews were a lot of fun to write (tunnel vision, yay!) and I think they made a lot of people laugh. Plus it'll keep me writing and get me another book on the list.

Onwards! I'll get started on that first review right now.

Yay! I laughed at your reviews. They were wonderful! In a schaudenfruedy, haha look what you have to read kind of way.

Also, I'm right there with you on these reviews; I've read like, four or five books, but the thought of banging out the reviews for them fills me with dread. Also, I'm at the end of Snooki's book, and I can't even begin to tell you the roller-coaster of emotions that book has put me through. It's pathetic!

HOLY CRAP I can't wait for your review of that. I miss your reviews so much.
