One reason that I probably decided on a break is because I need some time to get crap done that I have neglected for the past week. Little stuff, you know, like laundry, paying bills, showering. That kind of stuff. I have honestly spent every free minute (when the kids are in bed, when they are napping, when I am making dinner and reading my book on the counter next to the stove) reading these books.
The other reason is that I feel like I am sad for the series to end. I want to know that I still have that last book to read.
People who haven't read it...you should. It would be a great summer read. And not for all the hot and steamy parts (because they are there, but not that big of a deal to me). I just loved the story and Christian and Ana. I really did. E.L. James admits that she is not some literary genius. But she has sold millions of copies...and it really is a good story. At least, I think so. And I LOVE to read. I don't do it as much as I would like these days because I am busy with life. So every now and then, I find a book that I actually WANT to read during all of my precious free time. And these books were definitely those kinds of books for me.
But now I am back...for a little while at least, until I get my hands on the final book in the series. It feels kind of good to be back in the land of the living.
