Non-Stop Reading

Every time I start to read something that fascinates me, I can't stop.  Once years ago I spent all weekend reading War and Peace—non stop.  I wasn't much use at work on Monday. Another time I sat up all night in the bathroom to read one of the Lord of the Rings books by Tolkien one Christmas time.  We were visiting my parents and I didn't want to disturb my husband or son, who was a baby and even the living room had someone sleeping in it.  So I find myself today fascinated by Terry Eagleton's Reason, Faith, and Revolution:  Reflections on the God Debate and not wanting to put it down.  I also am reading The World Without Us by Alan Weisman for a book discussion group on Thursday.  Eagleton is winning out.
