Yes, Woo hoo indeed!  Any hint of the subject matter?  I just introduced my brother to DWJ and he's gobbling up the books.  When I passed on the news of two new books in the works he beamed.  Now we are working on addicting our parents (smile).
And speaking of introductions, I generally lurk but pipe up once in a while.  My name is Jenny Schwartzberg and I live in Chicago, Illinois.  Anyone living nearby?  I'm about to be 44, ouch, single, a rare book librarian and history of children's literature specialist among other things.  I'm curator of my library's current exhibit: Artifacts of Childhood: 700 Years of Children's Books.  Sorry, no DWJ in the collections.  Eventually maybe...
I've been reading DWJ since my tweens, I think.  I'm not sure what the first one was.  It might have been Charmed Life or the Magicians of Caprona.  I regularly reread her books and my current favorites seem to be Howl's Moving Castle and Crown of Dalemark.  I did want to ask if the blood relationship between Mitt and Maewen bothers anyone since they will probably marry in a few years down the road?  It worries me.
Yes, I take the books a little too seriously...
