On Monday, I finished reading Eldest by Christopher Paolini. It started out slowly, but really picked up the pace and I had trouble putting it down by the end. Now, I'm antsy for the final book in the trilogy. It was a little formulaic and predictable, but overall a fun read.
I also got my newest issue of one of my most favorite magazines of all time: Brain, Child. I couldn't help myself, I devoured it in one sitting. It only comes four times a year, so I should savor it more skillfully, but I can't resist. I totally adore the magazine. Plus, one of the last sections in each issue is "The Reading Chair" and I always get good ideas of future things to read from that.
