    I had to work my booty off to get the bookstore nearby my new house in my new town to order some copies - they don't even carry any sci-fi books, because they say there just isn't "a market for them" out here in the boondocks. I'm used to getting everything back home in Manhattan, and now, I have to speciffically ask if I want my EU fix! It's just nuts!

    Man I sooo need SbS! That's all I can think about. I check under my doormat, on the side of my garage, and in the mail box every day. Now everytime I hear a car go by I go running to the door to see if it's my BOOK!

    Geez, ain't it scary how you always seem to be less patient when you know you're going to be satisfied soon? Two months ago I wasn't all eager like this, but now I'm foaming at the mouth.

    Stevo, yeah, I live in Houston. Actually I live right outside of Houston- Spring area. I am getting my SbS from the Barnes and Noble in The Woodlands. But I am getting it from a friend who works there.

    Oh, nooooooooooo! I just realized that since the book comes out on Haloween I have to stay home and dole out candy for those damn trick-or-treaters! No time to go to the bookstore! I swear, if even one of them dresses up like an SW character, their parents will wonder why they never came home!

    Haloween is the 31st?! Woohoo! Thou art my savior, Rebecca! Geez, I'll probably be so engrossed in reading the book they'll ring the doorbell and I won't even notice...

    I know it's sad. I've read the spoilers, too; I might just be crying too hard to come to the door. Men cry, too, y'know... -sniff-...

    I've still gotta hit up Wally World to see if they might have put it out early, but i'm going to be spending cahs like a fool. Between SbS, Smackdown for the PS2, and my speeding ticket i'll be spending around $200. Thank heavens for tips :)

    Someone on one of the mtriad Star by Star forums said that they tried to get their poublic library to hold a copy for them when it comes out.......
    So I decided to also (i don't wasnt to pay $26 for the book even if it is hard cover). Anyway, it turns out the book is in the database as a will order later, and i'm the FIRST to request it!

    You're lucky. I was the FOURTH to request it at my local library. I don't believe the libraries will get it until days after the official release date though. Oh well.

    Man. I got back an hour ago from checking out the local bookstores - B&N, Waldenbooks, and Borders - in hopes that SBS is out. I don't know of any Walmarts in the area. So, those of you who do have it - where did you get your copy?! And don't tell me Walmart. Tell me another name.

    It sucks for me,
    even though I live in a well populated suburban area Star Wars tends to be low priority with most of the local book stores and even if they do get it they wont shelve them for a while. As a result I won't see SBS for about a week or two after it comes out.

    its dumb if some areas don't have the book right away. I remember when Specter of the Past came out. I went to a locally owned bookstores on the DAY OF RELEASE and they did not have it yet. I even tried to get them to check the back. They didn't want to. Then I went to the college bookstore (I've gotten a star wars book there before) and they didn't have it. Finally, I went to B.Dalton and got it. Barely got it and had to go to class (I was in college at the time).

    I don't bother with the library because there is no guarantee that they'll have it the first day. In fact, when I, Jedi came out, I was working at a library and was the first to check it out. I liked it to much that I bought it at Best Buy (yes, the electronics store) and returned the library book after having it only a few days.

    I don't mind paying the price for a hardcover because I know I can KEEP the book.

    One bad thing about libraries is that eventually, the books get worn out and they start to look bad. I usually only read the book once and then shelve it on my bookcase. Sometimes I re-read the book, but not always.

    Okay, its only about 3 and a half days until it comes out!!!!!!! I'll have to be showered and dressed by 9:30 and then I'll force my dad to take me to the bookstore, or I may try to take the bus.

    I write too many long posts, sorry, I just love to write. I still need to finish Rebirth (I got off track because I was reading my harry potter books).


    bye!

    I compared the fourth book of Harry Potter to the size of Star By Star. I went the 606 page. Baring any extra pages , It's going to be one thick book.
