A very long time ago, I was eagerly anticipating book three in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. At the time with no internet and easy access to information, I thought this was going to be a trilogy...keep that in mind. Christmas came and I received a gift card to Borders. I couldn't wait to use that gift card. I knew exactly what I wanted to buy. I wasted no time going after Christmas, rushed right to Voyager and with a BIG ASS SMILE on my face, skipped to the register to buy my beloved book. I carried the package close to my heart and when I got home, lovingly removed it from the bag and put it on my nightstand. And there it sat for almost a year!! Matt would ask me every once in a while, "Hey, are you going to read that book or what?" And I would reply, "Yes, eventually." To which he would shake his head and proceed to tell me that I was a bit off my rocker. I then had to explain to him that if I read it then it would all be over. No more Claire and Jamie, no more time travel, no more epic love story.....no more best friends! He just looked at me and said, "I just don't get you!" But you do, my book loving friends...you do!!
Does this comic resonate with you? If so, which book was it that you waited and waited for, only to not want to read it because then it would be over???? Please share in the comments!!!
