When you finally had the book in your hands?

I didn't even know the final chapter had been released. I was wandering around a book store, and then I saw it. The hardcover edition of The Dark Tower.

I nearly fell to my knees. The only thing I kept thinking was "It's here, It's here!!!!" It's amazing how you've been through the journey and you only feel the tenth of what Roland would have felt when he reached the Tower.

My hands were shaking when I handed it over to the cashier. I kept babbling about how the book was the final volume of the series. The chick probably thought I should get out more often.


I kill with my heart.

The Darkside of the Moon (England really)
My reaction was "damn it's bigger than the rest, this really screws up my presentation". I should explain, I bought them all within a few months of each other pre owned online, didn't know what the hell the dark tower was at that point -just a fantasy western. they're all the same size and with the same theme covers, except part 7, which is still the same theme, but a trade paperback size. I was in the process of building up a collection of all his books. So it was about 2 years after I bought it that I actually read it.
