    I took yall's advice and went to Walmart, they wouldn't give it to me so I went to Sams, then Target, and Costco. I still don't have the book!

    Wow, some of you people are really impatient. I want the book, but I'm willing to wait until Tuesday. I just hope that one of my local bookstores will have it.

    You're in good company, stevo. Now that schedule is confirmed on Tuesday, I got about 60 hours to go. I say that because I don't know how to take in the fall-back time change.

    Yeah, I'm craving Sbs right now because it would just make the next few days not stink so much! I'm the report editor for my Introduction to Engineering Design team and one of my teammates forgot to send me their part of the report! So, I have to still write the report and pray to god he reads his email tomorrow before I get up and sends me his file! Grrrrrrrrrr, hate technical writing!!! :mad:

    The boards are dead tonight.


    If you think I'm hyper now, you should see me when I'm really hyper. Last time that happened I ran around the block 56 times! that's like 10 miles! But that only happened once, 6 yrs ago.

    2 more very very long days to go.

    Must have SBS

    Hi People. Sorry not to have been around in a while, but I think you'd be interested to know I'm on page 363 of SbS right now!!!

    I got the book yesterday(Friday) and it is amazing!!!! My mom was doing errands, and I asked her to check, and they had it at Wal-Mart. If any of you live in the San Diego area, she said there were a few at the College Avenue Wal Mart.

    Anyway, the book is soooooooo awesome!!!!!!! And it's a wonderous 606 pages!!!!!!! I can't believe I'm actually reading it.



    ******Spoilers!!!******



    So far, Anikan is still alive. There is a huge cast, and the book has a truly galactic focus. Kyp and Luke have resolved differences and are fighting the Vong, Leia has totally left polotics, and Borsk is putting his neck on the line supporting Jedi. The Vong are getting very close to Coruscant. They just took Borelias, and another similar planet. The Jedi strike team is on the worldship over Myrkr, and trying to reach the Voxyn queen. The voxyn's are actually all clones of the queen, so if they take her out, they take them all out. The voxyn are really creepy, but an awesome addition. They spit acid, have a paralyzing scream, retro viruses in their claws, poisoned spikes, six legs, barbed and poisoned tail, etc. They can sense the force, and are ruthless hunters, but loose their minds when yslamiri are present. I'm thinking Coruscant will soon be falling, and I'm really hoping Viqi Shesh will fall with it. She's a player here, but is really getting on my nerves. Anikan is such a great character, and I may be deluded, but I'm still hoping for a contradiction to the spoilers.

    ****End spoilers******
    Well, it's late now, so I will check back tommorrow if I can. Best of luck finding the book for yourselves.

    I am SOOOOOOOOO glad that Kyp and Luke resolved differences!! Maybe now Kyp won't be such a jerk and there will be less bickering in these forums!! Oh thank you for the spoiler, whoever you are!! Plus, I'm done with my darn paper, for now. Now come the drafts [face_plain] Ugh!

    Time is getting short. I'll be bebopping my happy self down to Wally-World after I get off work Monday night. It'll be sometime after midnight, but that doesn't matter to me. I'll be happily headed home to watch WWF Raw and then crack open SbS.
