3 books in 4 days!

I happen into the bookstore the other day. BAD idea. I am thinking I am going to walk out with a quick read to distract me for a couple hours and instead I find THIS.
I walk up to the display as the cover intrigues me. (Don't always listen to "don't judge a book by its cover") I walk over to examine to have two girls that are a year or two younger than me walk straight through the front door and hasten to the display. I watch through the corner of my eye as they rush for the 3rd book and ask how they felt about the series. One girl grinned excitedly while the other exclaimed "let me put it this way... I started the first book on my plane from Seattle yesterday morning and here I am buying the 3rd book!"
OK! So I bought the first book to test the waters. I let it set and start it about 5pm the next day. At 10:30 I closed it. I was really kicking myself for not buying two and three at that point. So at lunch I went and bought the next two. They just sucked me in! (no pun intended) I pretty much got nothing done for 3 1/2 days except going to work, sleeping and reading. Thank goodness I don't own dogs.. they might have starved by now. (joking people... just joking)
The fourth book doesn't come out for a year, A WHOLE FREAKIN YEAR!!! UGH!!! Talk about drive me out of my mind.

Guess I am going to have to read the Anita Blake Series by Laurell K Hamilton again to keep me distracted for a couple of weeks and go from there.
