Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (No Spoilers)

In general, I only read really really good fantasy, and this is not that. Then again, it's not as bad as, to quote Suzy McKee Charnas, "The Sword of Sha-Na-Na." There were a couple of big infodumps near the end and I really prefer those to be worked into the story, but the ending was acceptable. People you like die, but that happens in good books, too. I thought the story was fine, the usual twists and turns and such. Now that I've finished this book, I'll take them all to the Friends of the Library when I get the van back.

The DSL is definitely faster, though not instantaneous like the BPL. I finally got to see the video from Rose's Turn with Soren singing (good job!) and shots of Velma. I suppose I'll be tempted to watch less-worthy vidio now, too.

I don't think it's going to change how fast I do online, though, since most of it is reading and writing and faster communications doesn't help that a lot.
