Some things you don't pass up
I've been listening to The Night Circus on my commutes the last few trips here to Iowa City and I've been enjoying this book so very much! On a brief stroll through the bookstore here at the hospital the other day I had seen a copy on the New Relases shelf. Now that I've been here a couple days I was seriously missing this book. (and isn't Jim Dale just the bee's kness!!)
Hey! (I says to me) The books store has a copy, why don't you just go buy it and you can read from where you left off listening! (I mean it, I like this book!).
I held off for a bit, buuuut, then I couldn't find something for my daughter to read up at the patients library and the thought crossed my mind again, like a herd of buffalo! And there was no resisting.
So I traipsed down there and there it sat, all shiney and new and hardbacked. I almost didn't get it since I forgotten it was going to be hardback, being just released and all. But then... I saw the sticker...20% off, which made me take a step closer....and then.... I saw the other sticker!!
Now here I sit and I can't bring myself to read it. I mean really what if I hurt it? What if I fingerprint-smudge up all the pages and the dust jacket? Nope this is a keeper... but I do so want to read it. arggghhhh. dilemma!
I'm thrilled to have it however. And I'll love it..and pet it... and squeeze it...and hug it.... ;)
