Do you still get excited about new books as you did when you were little? In general? New books in particular, like from a favorite author? Or do you look at all new, unread books with the same level of anticipation?
Just yesterday, I finished the latest of the Flavia Albia bookseries, Enemies at Home, and although I loved reading this new installment, I know it will be a long and arduous wait for the next one. Same deal basically with JD Robb’s In Death series: there will a be new one coming in September and it’s already on pre-order!
Of course, any new book is a great gift: even though you choose the book based on reviews or just an appealing blurb text, starting your read is also (hopefully) an anticipation fulfilled.
