I have found it very hard NOT to buy it this weekend. It is everywhere. I can't even start reading it, as a) I am halfway through two other books, b) Have a backlog of New Scientist and c) most importantly, got to finish 31 reports by tomorrow. However, everytime I passed a stack (Waitrose is cheapest) I felt that I simply HAD to have one. It has taken quite a lot of effort to get my natural reaction to someone trying to force me into something to kick in. And even then, it doesn't feel quite as offended as usual. Weird, or what. And I did have a quick flick through, and reckon I know (unless there are a lot of red herrings) and it is one of the characters I reckoned wouldn't make it through to vol 7.

Penny - back to work
