I used to love going to buffets when I was a kid because I had the stamina to pack in about 4 servings without gaining an ounce. Needless to say, those days are long gone. According to the Travel Channel, there are over 5,000 buffets in the United States, and range from high end pricing to the more budget friendly. One place to get the gamut of every type of buffet food fusion that you can imagine, is none other than the awesomely awesome Austin, Texas. Ironically, they are not well known for all those bountiful buffet spots. In fact, with over 300 restaurants dedicated to smoky goodness throughout the city, Austin is actually famous for their barbecue. If you like to go back more than once to partake of all those goodies, experts recommend that you limit the carbs on your plate dang it!
HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU FINISH A BOOK
Way back in the day, it was super simple for me to read about 3 romance novels in a week. Then, when I reviewed erotic romance, there was such a heavy volume to keep up with, that I read about that many in two weeks, in addition to writing those reviews. I soon found that there was very little time to read for fun, so the books just kept piling up.
Now, because I'm involved in various projects, I'll be lucky if I can finish even one novel in 5-7 days. Yikes! At the end of each month, many of my book blogging friends share how they have read 40 - 100 books, and I'm impressed, wishing I can catch up on all my precious reading. Curling up with a good novel is always the best way for me to unwind, relax and forget about everything that is going on in the world. What about you? How long does it take to get through one book?
