    Hey everyone,

    I haven't been on here in about 2.5 years now. I have no idea how I remembered my user name, but as luck would have it I did. I just finished listening to 11/22/63 today, which is now the third time I've finished this book (twice reading it, once listening to it). Somehow, I love this book more even more. There's just something about being taken back in time and feeling like you're truly alive with Jake/George and the rest in the 1960s that is truly amazing.

    My heart broke at the end once again. It's that weird feeling where even though I know what happens, I still thought I may read a different outcome. Alas, I did not, and I was left emotional once again. I love the ending, I truly do, but more than anything I still want Jake to go back again and this time only go for his true love Sadie. I know that the past is obdurate and this can create terrible consequences, but it's what I would do if I were him.

    This post didn't have any particular questions or anything to it, just wanted to welcome myself back in the world of 11/22/63 with the rest of you who love this book like I do.

    That is very nice!

    I actually stole that Welcome sign from a member who is no longer on the board - he was from England and his name was kingzeppelin

    I really miss him a lot - when I first joined he and I had a lot of long conversations and we enjoyed playing in the Games thread - especially the Song Game

    I bet morgan must remember him!

    That was back in the days when blunthead was still here :down:
