I borrowed a copy on Tuesday morning...and finished it tonight. What a story!
Eric was in line at our local Barnes and Noble midnight Friday to buy a copy. When he got home I asked him about the crowd. He said, think of Main Street in Disneyland - the store was that full of people and had that kind of energy... lots of kids and adults in costume! He read the first 100 or so pages that night, then continued throughout Saturday and finished it before he went to bed. Aunt Sharan (and Uncle Eric)
