i've been reading the book trip to the stars by nicholas christopher for almost 2 weeks now.
slow reading because i'm usually taking care of the kids or running errands for the parents and my sisters.
the way it's written doesn't help much. the pace is a little slow plus there are so many bits and pieces about history since the setting is during the vietnam war (manila is mentioned). you read it slowly or else you miss something.
or maybe it's just me.
still, i'm enjoying reading it. i just wish i could move on to my books of magic.
