I want to run with Atreyu!
One of my favorite movies as a kid was The Neverending Story. Awesome. I loved almost everything about it. When I think back on it, I remember the way Bastian skipped his classes, hiding out in the attic of his school for an entire day because he just had to finish the book. He had to get to the end. Nothing else mattered. He was completely gripped.
The last two books I've read made me feel this way. I just wanted to run and hide until I finished them. No work. No writing. No sleeping. Just reading. They had me, and I loved it.
