Cannot. Wait.

I think I’ve told you guys like 47 times how much I love Jodi Picoult novels. And My Sister’s Keeper is sort of the staple of Jodi books. It’s usually everyone’s favorite. And above is the trailer for the movie version of it, which can’t possibly be as good but which I will totally see and bawl at.

Enjoy.

So I want to tell you about a conversation I just had with Mr. Mock.  First, the background.  I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m CRAZY about Jodi Picoult’s books.  If you haven’t heard of her, you’ll probably be hearing about her more once Cameron Diaz’s movie “My Sister’s Keeper” comes out – it’s based on one of Jodi’s books. ANYWAY, my love for Jodi in no way diminishes my love for Laura Zigman, who as you know is a mockdocker and fellow Ashley Judd hater.

Jodi just came out with a new book, pictured above.  I’ve been waiting for MONTHS for a new book of hers to come out, because there hasn’t been a single thing she’s written that I haven’t absolutely GOBBLED UP.  Since I’ve read everything she’s ever written ever, she simply cannot write new books quickly enough.  And true to form, the moment I finished the first page of the new book, I was completely hooked.  And that’s the thing about Jodi’s books – I become so completely wrapped up in them that I tear through them in a matter of hours, and then I’m left feeling completely empty and yearning for more and then I have to wait for months for the next one to come out.  It’s like an addict waiting for the next high.

So I just finished the first few chapters of the latest book, and then I forced myself to put it down, and the following conversation with Mr. Mock ensued:

Me:  OMG – I love Jodi’s books SO MUCH.

Mr. Mock:  So you’ve said.

Me:  This new one is already so good – I don’t want to stop reading it.

Mr. Mock:  Then keep reading it.

Me:  But the more I read it, the quicker it’ll be over.

Mr. Mock:  Then stop reading it.

Me:  I don’t want to stop reading it.  It’s just that when a book is this good, I tend to read it really fast and then it ends before I want it to.

Mr. Mock:  Then don’t read it so fast.

See?  He’s got an answer for everything.
