TORTURE
Is there anything more agonizing to a rabid book lover than re-reading a huge long series of books that one loves in order to read the latest one in the series and finishing it only to remember that not only have all the story lines been left hanging but the next book isn't even PUBLISHED yet?

I've spent the entire weekend (with a few breaks for walking, showering, eating, laundry) immersed in reading. I feel like I've just come up for air.

And now I have to start the book club book which we're meeting on Thursday about and try to get it finished by then, and mostly I just want to think for several days about the books I just finished reading without shoving them mentally aside to make way for a book I don't really want to read all that much.

I can't believe I probably have to wait more than another YEAR to find out what happens.

AAGH.

What are you reading right now? Does it have a sequel? Is it out already?

From Megsie

I love re-reading a good series. Which one is it?

I am still reading "Linger" which is the sequel to "Shiver." It is a YA book and I am enjoying it. But it has been neglected since school started again... :(

Love week-ends lost in a book...lucky you!

Re: From Megsie

I've just finished reading the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon. Was waiting for nearly 2 years to buy the latest in mass market paperback and finally gave up and borrowed it from a friend. But the next one isn't planned for publication until 2012. AAGH.
