Arrival

I got my Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde today. It comes out in the US in a few weeks, but I got an advance copy from the UK, was that impatient. A review will be forthcoming (let me read it first!)

I of course looked in the back pages to see when the next Nursery Crimes would be coming, but before I could notice that I saw the announcement of the next Thursday Next book, The War of the Words.....

WHAT??? I thought Fforde was finished with her! Then I saw that it won't be coming out till next July...how can I wait so long? Not that I want to rush Mr. Fforde - I'd rather have quality of course. But oh, the impatience!

I suppose my new book will have to hold me. What a brat I am. I get what I've been waiting for, but no, I want more!

It's wonderful to look forward to a book. I've got one by my favorite poet that's coming out on the 31st that I can hardly wait for. i keep imagining the happy flutter when I crack open the spine and start reading...

gotta love words.

Yes, the spine crack! That's the crack I'm addicted to :)

And don't forget the new book smell! How exciting! Looking forward to more Fforde reading.
