Dewey’s Read-a-Thon Update #5

I keep going from thoroughly engrossed in Fahrenheit 451 to feeling antsy and simultaneously like taking a nap, not because of the book, but because I’ve been at home all day and up since about 6:30 this morning.  I’m really not sure if I’m going to make it through the night, but I’m going to try.

Speaking of Fahrenheit 451, I think I’m going to have nightmares after I’m done with this book!  It’s that good, and that scary.  It’s like reading 1984 all over again, and it’s what the movie Equilibrium *should* have been, or at least could have been – thought provoking and emotion inducing to such a high degree that I’ll never forget it.  I’ll walk away from this book being better for having read it.  I just realized I used the word “degree” while writing about a book that has a title that is a temperature….  Anyway, I want to at least finish it before I make the decision of taking a nap or making yet another cup of tea.
