I finished the book.
Surprising ending, but then not surprising at all.
I'm not ashamed to say it made me cry, but so did David Copperfield and many other books.
But page 637 broke my heart.
Must remember - they are not real people.
Now I can get back to my knitting.
Maybe do a little cleaning too.
For the record I began reading it at 7:30 Saturday morning.
And yes, it was worth it to stay up past midnight on Saturday in order to pick up the book.
