Sorry Tora!

I didn´t know that more people wanted to read the book!
But don´t worry, you have a lot of things to discover inside the book that I haven´t said.
Enjoy reading! :wink:

Hope you don't! :twisted: I'm still at page one hundred something. I was at the beach today, and, can you believe I missed the book while I was sunbathing? I'm definitely gonna take it with me tomorrow!
