Literary Masochism is Great Fun*

So as I said in a previous blog entry I plan to at least finish reading the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan despite my utter lack of interest in his writing whatsoever.
With that goal in mind, I checked out The Mark of Athena from the school library a day or so ago. I've been occupied reading another book (Like We Care, which I can't say to have enjoyed in any form whatsoever) for the past few weeks, so I haven't been able to read it at all. But what I did notice was that the thing was almost 600 pages long. (Holy) I feel I may just drift into eternal slumber reading this thing. Considering how much work and studying I'm going to have over the next few months it's probably going to take me the entire semester to finish ._.
Then again, I do remember that the demigod books by Riordan are masterpieces compared to the Kane Chronicles, so maybe it won't be that bad? I remember some actually decent character development in the last book (!!!).
I guess I'll just ride/read it out.
