Five Days...

... till Kong is loosed upon the world.

Feels strange, after so many years. I know that some of you thought I would never finish. Believe me, there were dark nights of the soul where I had my doubts as well. But now the day is almost at hand, and the dragons will fly.

In fact, they are already taking wing. Bantam informs me that DANCE has just gone back for its 6th hardcover printing, and it isn't even on sale yet. The first reviews are breaking today, and so far (knock wood) they have all been great. And in the UK, Waterstone's in Glasgow has put up a brilliant window display:



Exciting times.

I took time off of work for this
I have never taken time off of work to enjoy entertainment mroe immediately. I've always thought it was dumb to sacrifice vacation time to get to something faster.

This is different. Cannot wait until my Kindle downloads the book as I feverishly re-read the series up to this point. Took two days off just in case.

I took time off work as well. I haven't done that since the last Harry Potter book. Some things you need quiet time to enjoy to the fullest.

Me too! I've also saved up enough waterstones points over the last few years to be able to get the book for free! 2 days of reading. I hope it's enough time :) Going to head to waterstones first thing Tuesday morning, grab the book, head to a cafe for breakfast and a read. Then home for some couch balming and a read. And then off to the local indian for some dinner and a read. I'm so excited!

I moved my vacation to this week 1. to help friends move and 2. to have plenty of time to read! Counting down the hours 'til I'm laying on the beach with my copy. :D
