Don't waste time or time will waste you

parenthetical power!

So I was in the middle of reading three different books (not including for school) but I am powerless to the call of Anansi Boys so I've started that one too.

I absolutely love the dedication:

"You know how it is, you pick up a book, flip to the dedication, and find that, once again, the author has dedicated a book to someone else and not to you.
Not this time.
Because we haven't yet met/have only a glancing acquaintance/are just crazy about each other/haven't seen each other in much too long/are in some way related/will never meet, but will, I trust, despite that, always think fondly of each other...
This one's for you.
With you know what, and you probably know why."

I love that. I've read bunches of "this book is for my fans/you the reader" dedications, but I actually believe this one. For me! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :)
