Okay, so here is the "before" picture. I'm going to apply myself diligently this week and see if I can actually manage to finish Les Misérables by the end of Saturday. As you can see I'm quite far along and don't have too much left to read. Sometimes it's that last dash that's the hardest. As you can see I've planned it all out. If I can read 60 pages every day (yellow tags to be removed as I go), I can finally move on to a new book! So I'm going to take a big deep breath and take the plunge and completely immerse myself in ca. 1832 Paris. My bag is going to feel awfully empty with only one book, but unless I want to be reading this during my winter break from work, it has to be done. You have no idea how brutal this feels to someone who likes to juggle a stack of books!
