Readathon, Hour Eleven… plus

*shakes head vigorously*

Have you ever read a book that swept you up so thoroughly, so completely, into its world that you came out of it feeling… like you haven’t quite left it yet? Like its echoes are still present around you?

That’s how I feel now that I’ve finished The Golden Tower. I know I didn’t quite finish twelve hours… almost, but not quite. I have to call this it, though, because my brain feels like a sponge that’s been squeezed dry, and I don’t think I’m capable of either starting a different book just yet, or writing the review of this one.

I won’t be home tomorrow to take part in the post-‘thon activities, but I fully intend to drop by Dewey’s blog on Monday and indulge. Better late than never, eh?

Look for my review of this one on Monday, and good luck to all the rest of you who are still going!

    I’m looking forward to your review– I just requested The Silver Lake since you’re so enthusiastic. [The library doesn’t have The Golden Tower yet… are you reading an advance copy?]

    Softdrink, Marg, Jessi: Thank you!

    Maree: Ohhh I live for finding books like that. I can’t WAIT to read the rest of the series!

    Alice: Thank you! Now if I could only catch up with everything else…

    Scott: I believe it is an advance copy … aha. Here’s the press release that came with it. It’s due out 11/4. My review is up, for all that I tried and probably failed to capture my feelings about the book in words. I can’t wait to read the preceding book.
