Read-a-thon Mini Challenge: Hour 5

Ok, I'm really confused about the timing of these challenges--this is supposed to be hour five (which ended an hour ago, but the blog says it ends 11 pacific time, which is 1 my time which is hour 3. Confused...)

But I like the challenge--so here goes:

Vasiliy has asked us to post our favorite quote and mine, of course, is from Wuthering Heights--or at least the first one that comes to my mushy brain. Wait, the first one that comes to my mushy brain is "I AM Heathcliff" but I can't find that quote in my copy. So here is the second best:

"I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquited slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth" (308)

I've been getting confused with the time zones and all, too. I think I've spent as much time counting hours as reading thus far. hehe

You know, Trish, you're starting to convince me that it really wouldn't be a bad idea for me to re-read that book.

I've given up on the time zone thing too. I love that quote.

I'm getting confused, too. I'm not longer trusting the "times" (which is weird because I DO live in the Pacific time zone) and going by hours. That was confusing, too, until I stopped to remember that hour 1 STARTS at 9 am. Nonetheless, I'm just doing challenges as I see them. It means I'll miss out on some, I suppose, but that's alright.

I am all messed up with the time thing too! :) Glad I am not the only one...I think when I am done my post will probably say hour 27!
