A novel, completed, what's wrong with me?

I am not the type of person who can be swallowed up by a novel. I have better things to do with my time.

Well, I purchased this novel a while back and read half of it in two days and then got side tracked. I thought for sure the book would have been completed within 4 days, but hey life gets busy. As I happened to see a commercial clip of Cameron Diaz with her head shaved (not really, it was a cap), I was drawn to see what she was working on filming. I sat and watched the clip on Extra, or one of those trashy shows, and realized they were filming a movie based on the novel I was reading, My Sister's Keeper, by Jodi Picoult.

Last week I pulled the novel out and it became my best friend, until I finished it. I was an emotional mess as I finished the last page. I was definitely a pregnant woman with raging hormones because I am not a crier at all, and this had me hysterical.

Just thought I'd update you on what has consumed me these past two weeks, aside from everything else!

i read this in may - i couldn't put it down either, and even though i was no longer pregnant, i cried about 30 times. i don't think there's a mommy alive who could read it without crying (maybe even dads, too). it was a very draining read for me, but in a good way. i haven't cried like that in ages.
love, susan
