I'm tearing through this book. It's an easy read.

The Reading Room is fantastic. I want to visita secret undefground library hidden behind a bookshelf.

I'm torn on the failure. On one hand it would cheapen things if solving the book was so easy. On the other, what does it mean for Penumbra? Maybe Corniva's warning was genuine?

I'm afraid to know the secrets of the book. It probably cant live up to the intrigue.

I am curious if we're learn anymore about Grumble. Maybe he's just a plot device to solve the problem of photographing the boom though.

Also, Moffet died really young. I think 47. Did they say why? He was part of the secret book club, but then published his magic book instead. Was he punished for that?

If I dont finish this tomorrow, I'll be surprised.

Kat | 1177 comments Getting almost caught in the Reading Room was good. I was pretty sure he wasn't gonna get out of there in one piece. Or at least not with his harddrive intact.

I loved the big hack party at google, even if the result was zilch.

I thought they would find something. Not solve it, but find something that would then have to be solved a different way again.

I'm worried about Penumbra, where did he scoot off to?
