Finished it! Whew. I may be about two weeks behind my kids and everyone else, but still -- I got to have the no doubt rare experience of reading the last four books in the series for the first time, all within a few days of each other. I think I've spent more hours in Hogwarts than in the High Sierras, this past week.
On another note:
Our family misses Tommy Makem, too.
Our kitty mystery is still unsolved.
