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?

That happened to me twice this past summer: Connie Willis' Blackout followed by the sequel All Clear, which wasn't released until October. And then I took a chance on Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey, and really enjoyed it (not as much as Willis), only to find out that the sequel isn't coming out until 2014. I think that's just not fair. How can an author release books in a trilogy five years apart? I'll be 44 by the time he releases the third, and I doubt I'll care as much then.

I can't wait to read All Clear, but I'm hoping for paperback soon!
