Sorry, I meant to specify in the first paragraph that I read _The Weirdstone of Brisingamen_ over and over.

It's great news, anyway.  I read it as a library book in my youth.  No, I read it, and reread it, and reread it. I kept checking it out to reread it some more. If there had been an easy way to get used books then, I would have saved up and bought it.

I didn't like _The Moon of Gomrath_ as much, but hearing that the books are supposed to be a trilogy helps that make sense. I have often thought that some works are more corridors to later action than rooms in themselves.
