Sneaked Peek

I'm not supposed to be reading anything until Friday, when I finish revising.

But I couldn't help peeking at the first page of Sara Gruen's new novel, Ape House:

"Give orange give me eat orange me eat orange give me eat orange give me you." -- (Chimpanzee) Nim Chimpsky, 1970s

"Gimme gimme more, gimme more, gimme gimme more." -- Britney Spears, 2007

Hilarious, no?

Yeah, it is kind of funny.

Loved, loved, loved Water For Elephants.

Ape House is a great read as she explores the bonobo species. Very poignant.

And yep, it's funny. :)

Hee! And I do the same - promise not to read until I finish revising but I also peek as well. :)

This is exactly why I love you! LOL. :-)
