    Well, here we are. Just a matter of hours before Star by Star officially hits shelves. Soon I'll be in line at my local Wal-Mart, clutching the text version of one of the best Star Wars stories I know in my own greedly little mits. But what about you? What are you going to do? Where will you go for it and what do you expect? Will they be sold out?! One would hope not! Hopes? Thoughts? Fears? Tell them to me, at least, I want to know!

    I plan to wake up shortly before sunrise, get my bike out, find an ATM and get enough cash for both Star by Star and Civilization 3. Then I will ride 10 miles across town in 5 degree Fairenheit weather over icy roads and bike paths to the Waldenbooks and Gamestop, Buy the aforementioned items, then ride back and read for a few hours before my first class of the day.(3:30 PM) It is *really* going to suck, but it will all be worth it when I start reading (or playing Civ. 3). I just hope it isn't too windy and I don't get frostbite.

    Ah, to live in Fairbanks with no car.

    First, I'm going to go to the BYU Bookstore because when Rebirth came out, they actually had 5 copies on the first day and I got the last one. Then, I'll either start reading, holed up in the reading nook of our floor lounge or take the bus over to the University Mall to find it at B. Dalton. If it's not there, I'll go over to the Waldenbooks at the Towne Centre Mall. I love having my first class at 4 on tuesdays.

    I'll be living the torture of my amazon order not having been shipped yet. Do I pick it up at a bookstore and then return my amazon copy there when I get it in the mail?

    oh, the pain

    My dad works and my mom takes a college class during the early afternoon, so since they have the only cars, I have to wait for my mom to get back before I can pick it up from the bookstore. Luckily, I have my copy reserved... ooh, I can't wait!

    My mom is in Lexington today and she talked to a person at Barnes in Noble and asked if they had star by star.

    She said they did but they couldn't sell them until tommorow (today) so she's getting my copy now!

    Okay funny story

    As mentioned before my local bookstore has a tendency to look down on Star Wars though they carry them just release them a week or two late. Any how I'm in the neighborhood and I figure why not just check. So I go on in and look around and don't find any thing. Moderately PO'd I feel like having a good time so I go up to one of the Clerks and ask them if they have Star By Star. As predicted the answer was no. So I ask them if it's in the back. I don't know if the guy was getting ticked at me but with out a word he walks a way and comes back a few seconds latter with the book. Okay so I buy the book and go home and check my E-mail. Apparently a month or two ago one of my parents pre-ordered Star By Star for me on Amazon since the holidays are coming up. Unfortunately my parents aren't the best with computers and failed to realize that they were ordering under my own account. As a result while reading page 23 my email comes up with AMAZON order shipped e-mail. So tomorrow I got to go back to the book store and return the book and hope that if the clerk is working then he doesn't kill me.
