I know I´m not far into this book, but based on the very first pages, I think this might be a book that works better for me as an audiobook. So I will skip to the audio, which is 26 hours long. After my endless listen to Harry Potter, this will take me some considerable time to finish, too.
And from now on I won´t assign specific books to the Snakes and Ladders squares, since my reading is all over the place. It´s so great that we are allowed to read any book we want and still we are able to make some progress.
