I just got an email from my library saying that the Yard is ready for me to pick up. I know where I'm going after work today. :)

Yeah! The Yard made the New York Times Bestseller List in its first week out. Many thanks to everybody who gave the whole prose thing a shot and picked the book up.

It was so good. Damn good!

You made something really great. Thank you.

I'm loving the book so far! I have to make myself stop reading it at night so I can get some sleep.
Gotta say though that I'm feeling a lot like during the Julia arc when I'm reading the book. What I mean by that is it's an emotional read for me. I don't like the bad guy, at all. And I keep waiting on something bad to happen to Hammersmith. I'm about halfway through the book now, right after the tailor visited Day's wife, and I really hope Day finds out and just goes off on the dude. I have more to say, but I'm keeping it a little spoiler free for now. At least until I finish the book. :mrgreen:
