    We got the same package yesterday! (Unexpectedly, since I went the free shipping route and didn’t think it was even shipping until release day.)

    I also took photos before opening the package. And after opening the package. From every angle. (And yes, I am a geek. But I thought the dedicated packaging was pretty cool.)

    Being that it is (at least theoretically) my 11-year-old’s book, I haven’t had a look at the actual text yet. She got about 10 chapters in straightaway, and then heard the siren song of her Nintendo — so evidently she’s not as concerned about the ending being spoiled as we (theoretical) adults are.

    For all my talk I’ve yet to read a sentence. I would love to be able to spend a day reading it but it seems like those days are long behind me.

    At first I thought you were going to say an iPhone.

    I can vouch for Spencer’s utter glee at receiving this package on Saturday. As Kristen and I pulled up to the house after a shopping trip, Spencer literally pranced and danced out of the house waving both arms in the air, the book in his hand. It was like a touchdown celebration, if 11-year old bookworms were in the NFL.

    At least I’m not the only reading it. You’d be surprised how many people are reading it on the train. ADULTS I TELL YOU!

    I’m still reading. I keep having to go to WORK. and it’s terrible because I work at a bookstore so I have to hear about it all day. I had to leave the cafe the other day bc these girls were talking about it.
