Normally when I get a book I stop whatever I can and power read through it. I mean if I want to read the book, I want to read it ASAP. After all, if I didn't think it would be good I wouldn't have gotten it. I just received the "Sandman Slim" book. I bought it so we would have something to read on the planes and trains of Italy. So now we see how long I can ignore the book until we are on the plane to Italy.
