Anticipation

[insert tired whine here]

Other than that, I'm having a pretty productive day, getting things removed from the list at quite a reasonable rate and doing other, non-list things besides. I have finally got my hands on a copy of Lloyd Alexander's The Xanadu Adventure! This is the last of the Vesper Holly series, and I have wanted it since I was 11. It hasn't existed that long, but I've wanted another Vesper Holly book that long. The Chronicles of Prydain and the Westmark trilogy were both definitively ended with their last book, and much though I love Westmark, another book in Westmark would have to be the start of a new plot arc completely; The Beggar Queen is the last. But The Philadelphia Adventure, while theoretically conclusive enough, left the possibility for more, and so more I wanted. And now I have more.

The other book I'd wanted since I was 11 was published long ago (Arthur Ransome's Great Northern?, the last in the Swallows and Amazons books).

What about you? What books have you wanted forever? Or did it just seem like forever? Were they everything you wanted of them? What are you still waiting for?

(Now nobody say Going North, no matter how much we all want it, or pameladean will turn pink and get flustered. Which heaven forfend.)
