I've read up to the end of Chapter 13 of Cold Days.

Darn work is getting in the way of my reading time.

I enjoyed Cold Days as much as any other Dresden book, if not the MOST I've enjoyed of any Dresden book. I'm almost sad that I plowed through it so fast!

Yeah..that one got me too. I've only had snippets of reading time yesterday and today. I don't expect to have much more tomorrow, so I'm hoping for serious, quality, reading time this weekend.

Only because Harry said she was right. She thinks it is hot - just like that comercial on tv "nothing is hotter than a guy listening"

Poor Harry, his problems reached near cosmic levels in this one. I see very bad things in his future.

Edit: On to Trapped. though I'm probably making a serious "I'll just read a little bit before bed" mistake.

Zowie! What a fantastic book! And judging by the above quotes, a lot of you seem to think similarly. To me, Cold Days is the best, most exciting, most thrilling and most informative Dresden Files book so far. Also Cold Days has finally given me some insight and understanding as to just what that final Apocalyptic Trilogy that Jim promises for the finale to this series might contain.

WOW!!

Not having a picture on the cover, or the author, or a description of the book is not going to hinder me to read the book. If I can't read the only thing that matters - the words inside the book - then maybe I start worrying.

If you expect me to not read any penguin books no more, then you are nuts.

There have been suggestions that Harry is being prepared for something big. I just love how Jim Butcher takes all the bits and pieces from the previous books and clarifies events in this one.

Poor Molly. I wonder how she's going to cope.
