You had a lot of self-control to wait for the author to finish writing the series-- I could never do that.
There was lots of down time for reading in the Marines, but less once I got out and went to school, especially grad school. I suppose that I should specify reading for pleasure. Now I read after my kids are in bed and before I sleep. I'm about a year in at this point with another to go.
