Crap

So I ordered my Harry Potter 6 book from Amazon.ca, all happy with the knowledge that they promise same-day delivery, so I wouldn't have to stay in line like I did last year. Although it was kinda fun, I'm not up to doing it again.

It occurred to me, that I'm probaby not going to get it until Monday though. Because Canada fucking Post doesn't deliver on Saturdays. So now I have to wait, while the rest of the world reads it and offers all sorts of comments on it, and yeah.

*stomps feet and has a tempertantrum*

LoL You've never read them? If you like the fantasy genre at all, they're well worth reading :P

I'm too cheap to buy novels. I'll wait a long time until the library gets this one in.

I'm a total book fiend. I just can't get enough of them! I've switched to hardcovers of my favourites since my paperbacks end up getting destroyed.

I'm a minimalist and don't like to keep a lot of things around.

I will buy reference books though if the price is right. Even those I've been trying to find used on Ebay. I just bought a vintage sewing book for $10.

Most things I try out from the library first. I hate the thought of wasting money and don't want to buy things I'll regret. Hence my love of "listening stations" at future shop.

Me too. I have boxes of books in excess of what my bookcases can hold!

Meaning it's a poor man's version :P

There are fake spoilers, if you see a spoiler from page 606, it's a fake!

I was relying on Geordles as my source of Harry Potter so I'm at least two books behind now. :(
Thank goodness for Chris giving me other books to occupy my head.

i've already confessed to her and she seemed ok with it so long as i promised not to steal anymore.
only way i can't steal books is to avoid the library like the plague.

I borrowed all the first ones from my coworker. in fact, she's behind and hasn't even read the last book but did let me borrow it right after she bought it.

Ahem, I finished reading it Monday, and only read ONE chapter Sunday... I'm at work and I'm retarded.

By the way, I liked the book. Fill me in what you think about it when you're done reading it?

Haha, I actually did get it Saturday, I started reading it Sunday, and I finished it Sunday :P

Book fiend indeed ;)

Check out my Book 6 discussion post if you're finished the book :)
