Appropriate title given the last post, no? I seem to be coming out of my funk...slowly but surely. It actually started a week or better before I posted the last post, so it's not new despite appearances. The walking is keeping me out, friends are keeping me out, and when I'm home I'm generally working or doing something fun. And the something fun is what I'm here to discuss today!
Even though I haven't mentioned it, don't think for a moment I forgot about the release of Stephanie Meyer's new book, Breaking Dawn, today! I am ridiculously excited about this final book (from Bella's perspective) in the Twilight Saga. Alas, I made the TRAGIC mistake of reading some Amazon reviews this morning, and I got a face full of spoilers. In reality I don't really mind so much because I would toootally read it anyway. I have to say, though, this one is REALLY going to piss off some people. Really really! And that's not a spoiler. If you haven't read any spoilers you will be totally shocked. She's a wiley, twisty little author.
I picked up my copy mid-morning, and I'm up to about page 160. So far, so good. I'm sure I'll finish it late tonight or early tomorrow. This particular book has prompted me to think a good deal about what fans expect from their favorite authors and how much those authors should really be influenced or held accountable by expectations. More to come on that.
Until later, if you're reading along, too, I hope you're enjoying the ride as much as I am!
