accio stuff

Cannot go into Powell's Books withiout leaving with unexpected books; got potter7 and a Bourdain novel and HaldemannLs Forever Peace and something else I forget.

Scheduled months overdue haircut.

Stopped at Sports Authority and bought on-sale treadmill. 25%off more than covered delivery.

Now, must configure living room. Which will mean, boxes of tapes retire to another room for a while.

Stoping at sushi place. Only allowed four rice sushi plates. Fried oysters are win.

After this, work for an hour ... hope the tests really are running, at over an hour per.

No spoilers.

Time to read book: 2.5 hours.

Conformation to expectations: 80%
Contradiction to expectations: 4 points
Confusion over incoherently described scenes: 2.5
Rating on 1-10 scale: 8.5

Slashy fanfic ideas utterly destroyed: 97%

Why I rated it 8.5: It was good enough to keep me reading despite my desire to put it down and go home. Further, it was consistent with the previous books, brought together themes, arcs, and elements which were shown in previous books, and did so in order to move the book to a proper ending.

Further, I read it in 2.5 hours without a break; normally that large a book takes me 5.
