    A few years ago I decided to re-read the series and am most of the way through the last book.
    In the last three books, I've stumbled across so many names of Tower peeps printed there. Each time it's a jolt. I can imagine re-reading the books in 40 years. I think most of those mentioned in the books will not be around by then. Each name would produce a jolt of memory, recalling a Tower peep who was here; a friend that I once knew.
    It's going to be heartbreaking.

    Or you could look at it the other way, and think about the good memories every time you see a name :)

    I suppose this is a point but this could be said for photo albums, pictures, social media etc etc as well
