"How much of human life is lost in waiting." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Usually I love love love to read series, because I get so deeply connected to the characters that I just want the story to go on forever. The saddest day of my life so far was when I finished reading Harry Potter 7, because I spent SO much of my life waiting for the story to end, that I didn't have much worth living for! At least we still have The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Unfortunately, this means I spend most of my life waiting  . . .  and waiting . . . So, I think everyone should read these series, so they can be forced to suffer with me!

Ender in Exile (Ender series by Orson Scott Card) . . . comes out November 11!! 
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling . . . December 4!!
The Temptation of the Night Jasmine (Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig) . . . Jan 22 2009
An Echo in the Bone (Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon) . . . September 2009
The Endless Forest (Wilderness series by Sara Donati) . . . December 2009
Murder on ??? (Gaslight Mysteries by Victoria Thompson) . . . unknown (maybe summer 2009)

Hmm . . . now that I've listed them out, it doesn't seem as bad. I feel that there are more though . . . Oh well. Read them so I have people to talk about the books with while I'm waiting! And yes, I mean you ERIN! I know you have time to read and you never listen to my advice!

What's funny about this blog is that I have all this time to read and yet I spend it looking at your blog telling me what I should be reading. =) I was thinking about getting you the Tales of Beedle the Bard for Christmas but am afraid that you'll buy it before then.
