Well, this series, it has a special place in my family along with the HP series. My mom would read it aloud to my and my brother in exchange for foot rubs (suffice to say that I got learned how to do good foot rubs). But we haven't done that in a long time. And I guess that I didn't want to break the tradition. But I really want to read the next book in the series!
