Jo, I'm so glad I'm not the only one!! I did the exact same thing. I was on vacation at the time and actually had a great deal of time to devote to reading, but as soon as I read the Muglins scene I cast the book aside and had a difficult time explaning to my friend why I suddenly wouldn't touch the book in which I'd had my nose absolutely buried for three full days.

Several days later I picked it back up and read straight through to the end... finished it on the way home and had a difficult time explaining to my mother why I was sobbing on an airplane, as I am not known for crying in public. (Or private, for that matter.) She understood when I finally bought her a copy of her own.
