This is why I so seldom allow myself to read fiction:

Yesterday at breakfast I started my new library book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

The last word in the book is "world." I know 'cause I got there at exactly 3:00 a.m. this morning.

Plus, I am babysitting for 8 hours today.

I'm thinking I'll wait a good month before I borrow the next one in the series!
