#5 - A Really Good Book

You know the Book I mean. It's the one you've been waiting to be released, or maybe you just happened upon it at the bookstore. Either way, it's the Book you can't put down. You stay up late reading it. You ignore your family until it's finished. It's the kind of book that you would read under your covers with a flashlight as a kid, breathlessly turning pages so your parents wouldn't catch you and make you put the book away.

It's probably not an Important Book, likely not even Literature. It does make you love the characters, cry with them, laugh with them, and get angry with then. You turn the last page, sad to see the story end. You blink your eyes, shake your head, and re-emerge to your ordinary life.

A Really Good Book - AWESOME!

So....what book is it?

This one was the latest by Jim Butcher: Changes. I love long series because I tend to fall in love with characters and want to see what happens to them. My exception to this rule is if instead of a series it is just the same book over and over and over again.

When you are done, would you be a wonderful daughter and send it to me? I will read very quickly and return just as quickly. PLEASE!!!!

I'd be happy to send it to you just as soon as Ry finishes it. He's about halfway through at this point.
