The question for today's Musing Monday's, hosted by Should Be Reading, is what's the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn't put it down?

My clear and honest answer would have to be nothing.  See, I am programmed to turn into a zombie at 9 p.m. and if I am not in bed by 10:30  p.m. I  turn into a pumpkin.  So, I don't stay up all night for anything or anybody unless one of my grandchildren is being born.  I have been known to get up about 4 a.m. for royal weddings but I won't say the rest of the day is pretty.

HOWEVER I do have my moments of being caught up in books and have been known to read through dinner preparation time, in the car on the way to anywhere, and in the tub. 

As to what the last book I read that I couldn't put down was -- well, that is difficult because the last several books I have read have been page turners.  In the Company of Others by Jan Karon certainly comes to mind but I have also been really caught up in the Aunt Dimity series.  Right now I am reading Franny and Zooey and it is going quite slowly, not because it isn't good but because I have been really busy but I intend to spend time on it today.

So, there you go -- not very interesting, eh?
