    First I went to the new bookstore in my neighborhood which just opened yesterday. They didn't have it. Then I went to my local independent bookstore which I like to patronize because the chains bug me. However, they were way too intellectual to have any Star Wars books, though they did have other books by Troy Denning and Tim Zahn. Finally , I went to Borders, which reliably has Star War books on their release date. and I was rewarded for my efforts. I am fortunate to live in the city, and these bookstores are within 10 blocks of my house. The urban life for me!

    I get it when I go to school, cuz my friend's mom works at a B.Dalton and I GET IT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IN 3 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, I'm going to be reading inbetween, and during classes which is really going to suck for me, but I think it actually might make it fun. The same thing happened with Conquest--there's always the constant danger you'll get caught reading after a warning, get the book taken away, and a detention! Bwahahahahahaha... I'm dressing up as Luke today too! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

    Wah! I forgot! CANDY!!!!!! *I love sugar!* * h y p e r *

    I walked over to the BYU Bookstore to peruse the sci-fi section to see if they got it today and instead found a huge display of it. Read it in 8 hours only because I had to help two people move and do a 2-hour orchestra rehearsal.

    Nom Anor:

    good plan. you go in first and i'll cover ya ;)

    and I have the feeling that "Items Shipping Soon" means "Whenever we d*mn well feel like shipping it."

    (update: YAY! my order shipped yesterday! i'm gonna go sit in front of my house for 4 days and wait for the UPS truck!)

    Why?

    Why Me?

    Why can't the bookstores I go to have SW books on opening day when I'm there and when I don't go on opening day they have a ton of them.

    Why?

    I love Amazon.com! :D I paid for 3-? day shipping, but I got it today! YAY!! :D That's even better than Balance Point (got it on the Thursday after).

    You know, I knew it was 606 pages, but this thing really is HUGE. I'm gonna call it the Monster. Very cool. Ok, I'm way to hyper and I must read! Bye!
