And they didn't do it for me.
I've mentioned that to a couple of people, and they were surprised to hear it, but a couple of others advised me to delve further into the 38-book series. Thursday afternoon I picked up Night Watch.
I haven't gotten a lot of sleep since then.
Last night I did a four (4!) hour Vicious Circle, signing off early (!) so I could get up this morning and go shoot a USPSA match. But I picked up Night Watch again, and read until I couldn't hold my eyes open. I finished it this morning.
I think I'll just take the 5R and the M25 to the range and do some load testing instead. And I may drop by Bookman's on the way home.
