100 Cupboards

Normally, I read fast. If a story grips me, two to four hours later, the book is done. I find a good story very addictive, and a good plot can induce me to forgo sleep, food, showering, and other basics of civilized existence.

However, I'm discovering that there are other ways to enjoy a good story than by snarfing it down as quickly as possible. Micah's reading 100 Cupboards aloud, and I'm really enjoying it. It is forcing me to slow down and enjoy each part of the story, instead of rushing to the end to find out what happens. Which is definitely the fate this book would have had, since I can't wait to find out what comes next. But I will anyway.
