I'm done. I got mine at 12:05 last night (we were in the first 50, and there were 10 registers), and I started reading immediately. I was up until 6 oclock this morning, non stop reading, and then I woke around eleven and finished about...10 minutes ago.

I won't say anything spoilery, but...Wow. I can't believe it's over. And, I'll be in mourning for some people for awhile.

ARRRRRGGGGGGG!!!!!

Real life is interfering with my ability to read the book!

I am only a few chapters in and I am already in shock.

I was in line for over 2 hours last night, but I had fun and got my book. Now, I just need to win the lotto so I don't have to finish my work...LOL

AHH! My eyes! My eyes!!!

I've never read that much in one day in my life!!! I started reading around 11am and took a couple hour-long breaks, but I just finished around 630 am. Whenever I look at anything white (like the walls), I see text everywhere. Man, I need to get some sleep. I haven't had the time (or energy, honestly) to digest it all.

Anyone wanna discuss it? PM me Smiley I think I need to do some chit chat Wink My best friend is usually the one I talk to about this stuff, but she's currently driving cross country and she's not one to drive and read at the same time Wink

Just taking a break...need to let  few things digest. Then I'll hopefully be finishing it this evening. Am I the only one who found this to be a slow read? Like, I had to actually work at comprehending some things, whereas the previous books I just flew through them & devoured them. I think I may be subconsciously reading slower to prolong the inevitable.  Cry

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

I finished the book a few hours ago and im still in shock. I think I have to read it again before I make up my mind about whether or not I like it. Does anyone else feel emotionally drained and just a little lost?

I am--yes. Emotionally drained, that's it. I finished hours ago, and I still can't believe it's all over. I cried, but not until I read some things on the internet that made me realize just how over it all was. Now, all I really want to do is read something else, something happy, something completely different. This whole things still seems so unreal--I'm tired, but I'm afraid that if I go to sleep I'll wake up and it will have all been a dream or something, you know?

Maybe I'm just thinking too much. My brain feels ready to explode.

I haven't gotten to read ANY of it yet!!!  My 12yo has the book and has been reading all day - she's about 1/2 done now.  I'll start it tonight or tomorrow.  It doesn't take me long, but I might read a bit slower too.  What will we do after this??? Sad

Me too! I finished about a half an hour ago, my parents did not think I would read it in one day.
