Lane doesn't recall the first time he met Joan Harris... )

...It's usually so slow that I can pull out a book and get fifteen to twenty minutes of uninterrupted reading done at a time.

Today, I'd forgotten my usual reading material (the horror!), so I stopped by Waldenbooks to pick up a Jodi Picoult novel I've been itching to read. (It's "The Tenth Circle", if anyone's wondering.)

There are three majorly cool things about this book:
1. It's AWESOME, because Picoult is a great writer.
2. One of the characters is a graphic novel illustrator; Picoult had three and four page excerpts from his graphic novel (there were probably five or six sections of these in total) scattered throughout the book.
3. THERE IS A SECRET CODE HIDDEN IN THE GRAPHIC NOVEL PAGES.

You think I'm lying about #3. I swear, it's true! Within the illustrations, eighty-six letters are hidden; they spell out a quotation by Demosthenes; it's supposed to best represent the theme of the book.

Not that the theme of the book really mattered to me at that point, I was too busy squeeing about 'secret codes' and pretending acting six years old again. If only I'd had my trusty Carmen Sandiego decoder with me....I'm sure I would have discovered the quotation much sooner that way!
