    AGREE 100%!!! That was exactly my feeling toward this book. Even though I'm completely in love with Chaol, by the end of this book, I was almost hoping for a romance with Rowan just to put SOME romance in there ...

    You are SO much more productive than I am. That is why I don't post my school productivity lists publicly ... because I would end up notating all of them "decided not to do that reading and see what happened" :)

    It feels like the 3rd ToG book is moving really slowly. Not sure if it's longer, or if I just don't have as much leisure time anymore, but ... it feels like it's taking forever!! She just needs to go back to Adarlan so that she and Chaol can live happily ever after. :)

    I'm almost to the point where I'm skipping the witch chapters. I'm definitely skimming them. I'm sure they're included for a reason, that will become obvious later (even if that reason is just, to make the book long enough), but for now, they're just not grabbing me ...

    WOW. You have been *way* more academically productive than I have this week. That needs to change, on my part. As usual, all of my assignments are due the last third to fourth of the semester ... which means I need to start writing *now* so I'm not slammed at that point. :(
