Just to bring up a book and an author I read recently, see if anyone else is into it..

Has anyone read Clay, by David Almond? Ever since I read Skellig in my sixth grade class I've loved his books, and while I really didn't like his second to last book I thought Clay, his most recent, was really good. Probably one of his creepiest. I dunno, anyone know what I'm talking about?

Sorry to be awkward but I'm having issues with finding a copy of His Majesty's Dragon, I've ordered it but the earliest it'll arrive is the 8th of May. Could we pospone the start date please?

Well, tell you what, since people are having trouble getting it, let's put the date back a week, shall we? That'd make it May 11.

Apologies, but I may not be able to participate in this round as my local Keibundo only had Book 4 in English, and I couldn't see any copies in Japanese. Sad I'll try and see if I can track it down in the next couple of days, but if I can't find it by the end of the week, I'm afraid I may have to sit His Majesty's Dragon out.

I've seen it around, but never read it. Creepy is it? I just thought it sounded kinda boring. . .No one I know has read it, but if that's a suggestion from you, I'll check it out. =]

I was at the library yesterday, and forgot to see if they had it! So I dragged my friends to the smaller one near my house and ordered it. I'll have my little hands on a copy tomorrow. =3
