There's something so familiar and happy about starting the next book in a favorite series. It's like you're meeting up with a good friend who you've been on lots of adventures with. As in, "Charlie Parker! Sooo good to see you again. What have you been up to? (Not that you'll say much. You're the strong, angry violent type; with a heart of gold, naturally.) What kind of trouble are we getting into today?" Happy, happy, joy, joy.
