I just finished reading my way through an entire series of books.
You know when you find a new author and you LOVE the books? And there's a whole series with many of the same characters......and you read them all.
All of them, one after the other.
And then you get to the end.
sort of like a friend is leaving and isn't coming back.
....later......just found out the author's died. Now I'm really sad, cause they really aren't coming back again. I'll just have to revisit.
