I am not surprised at all

*blinks* That book has more words than the Bible? Well, I feel kinda bad now.....

But yeah, man, I'd do that kinda shit if Louisa May Alcott ever published another Little Women boo-.... oh wait, she's dead.....

edit: speaking of books... Robert Jordan...when's his new one coming out? I wanted to pick it up for someone, if I can beat them to it....

hey, she's kinda hot. never read any of the books though.

"Rowling's books have served as rebuttals to those who predict the death of reading."

I think the same thing.


WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! oh and holy hell is it going to take forever to read... gah. I hate that.

I am estimating a week maybe two to finish. I know I'll be outside the book store after work that Friday to get the book at midnight, yes the book comes out on a Saturday so the kids won't miss school

Reading is highly overrated, really. I mean, I do it all the time everyday, so there's no need to sit down in another spot and try and find some kind of sick entertainment from it.

Actually it isnt as long as the bible. Not even close. It is 255k words, the bible is 700k+

Yeah... I thought the Bible was a lot longer... don't know where they got that number from.... it's thick and in tiny print...

but anyway.... Looks like I need to go to a bookstore and pick that book up.... I was hoping to make it a V-day present, but if I don't get it now, he might get it first....

As for reading... I used to LOVE reading. But now I have to do so much of it forcibly.... *sigh* Fuck the system.... they've ruined me.
