It could've been the slim little Love is the Higher Law. Or Pobby and Dingan. Or even Metamorphosis.

It could've been any one of a thousand skinny reads.

But it wasn't.

I lost the 1074-page Stephen King book Under the Dome.

It's gone.

Seriously gone.

I know it's gone, because this house is only 1,300 square feet, and that book is one foot by one foot its very self.

It didn't slip through the couch cushions. It's not under the bed.

Thirty-five dollars: that's what the library is charging me for it.

The most expensive book I've ever "bought."

Ugh! I hate it when that happens. We got to "buy" a book from my son's school library this year. Fun!

Oh man! $35 bucks can buy a lot of mochas!

The only upside is that the library will refund your money when you actually do find it, and a book that big can't just float away. Oh, wait, it's a Stephen King...anything's possible.
