[Mild, mild spoiler]

So we're in the Joelle van Dyne section and she's proceeding; it's gripping and harrowing and then it gets interrupted by the Chronology of subsidized years and that's pretty mcuh the end of the week's assignment. But if you peek ahead, you'll see that he section continues for another 10 or so pages! We're stuck with a cliffhanger! I have to wait the whole weekend to see what happens to her! Gadzooks!

Ooooh - go ahead and finish it - it's wonderful! I'm using the schedule as a rough guide and am staying slightly ahead for the time being. Based on how much I love it and today's column on the site, I might even start on my second reading while we're still in IS!

yeah, I gave up staying on the schedule long ago; I'm on page 453 and it's just getting better and better!
