On being sick

The one good thing about being sick is that I've spent the passed two days curled up on the sofa, alternately sleeping and reading, and the reading part has allowed me (finally!) to finish The Count of Monte Cristo. Now I know many of you didn't believe I'd ever finish this book, and there are those of you who wrote counseling me to give up, but I persevered and was rewarded by the exciting revenge-laden climax of The Count. A thoroughly enjoyable read, well worth the effort.
