Having summers off is nice, I have to say. XD

And...I think I cried three times.

Also, my mom and I found a bit of a mistake in the book. Finish it to hear our thoughts. :P

Oy. I got mine at 9:30 am, got home round 11 to start reading, and I've only just started chapter 7! I'm reading incredibly slow on purpose, with breaks too (one long one from 1:30 to 6 or so when I slept, having only slept last "night" from 5:30 AM to 8:45 AM) Anywho, I dont plan to read it till I'm through, like alot of folks do, which is rather annoying since everyone and their grandmother is flying through it to get done and will try to talk to me about it before I'm finished. You're all poops. :P

OMG, I'm only on chapter ten and I already love this book. It makes me cry and then laugh and then cry again.

And not really a spoiler, but just in case:

*collapses* I just finished it. It is absolutely AMAZING, and I think it's the best of the series! Read it if you aren't doing so already!

And now, to bed. :zzz:

Just finished it. I don't think it's quite sunk in though... but it was, as HCN said, AMAZING. Definitely my favorite of the series.

I don't think it was a character who used it at a great age, I thought that it said that "a character would perform great magic in a dangerous situation". (Don't read this until you're finished with the first three chapters.) In that case it was

In which I stop reading this thread until I'm done I guess. I did not look at any of the spoilers of the people who just read it. It just causes one to scratch one's head and not bother reading this again when posts are basically nothing BUT spoiler things, when you haven't finished. Heh.

Literally thirty seconds after I read that, Rebecca came over having just finished and asked the same thing. :P That is a good question though. ???
