Help! I've Got Dyslexia!!

OOM, that's what a dyslexic cow says. Sometimes when i read I'll look at a word or a sentence and I'll think "Gee that doesn't make much sense" and I'll go back and read it and it will make much more sense because I've mixed up a few of the words in the sentence. Now I'm not the kind of person who reads the first few letters in a word and guesses what the word is, I always read the entire word So I suppose I have an acute case of Dyslexia, or I'm just stupid, whichever.

So I've read these wonderful books by a one Sergei Lukyanenko, called the Night Watch series. The books are translated from Russian so in some parts the wording is a WEE bit choppy, but it's hardly noticeable and can probably just chalk it up as the writer's style if you want.
The plot has so many twists and turns that you'll never want to put down the book (my math teacher complained about that).

The story in the first book focuses on Anton Gorodetsky (the coolest name ever) and the efforts of the Night Watch, a group of Light Magic users who keep watch over the night and it's various magical inhabitants, and their attempts to out do the Day Watch, a group of Dark magic users who keep watch over the day and it's magical inhabitants, without shifting the balance of power too much towards either side, light or dark.
The books are set in contemporary Moscow and it is one of the BEST series of books that I've ever read, they are by far my most favorite books in the world. The series isn't complete yet, with 3 out of 4 books being out so far the last book is set to be released in october of 2008.
