No, because Hastings typically has them for 50% off for the first three days. :/ I could have had it for the same price and not had to wait.

Maybe... not in the case of books, usually... It's either buy it for cheap the week it comes out, wait a year to get the soft cover for the same price, or wait 2 years for the hardcover to go to the bargain bin (no guarantee of that). Spent $25 to get free shipping so I still ended up spending more than I would otherwise have and I still have to wait on it.

I read Kindergarten journal writing (when I'm not reading things on how to be a better teacher). [green]

@ Michael: I LOVE 1000 page beasts!!!! There's such a fulfilling feeling when you're done reading (and a little sadness too). Are you a big Stephen King Fan?

Aeowap/Blinky's Revolution from the old Crossgen boards got me onto the Kushiel's series.
Trained from childhood to a life of servitude and espionage, Ph?dre n? Delaunay serves her master, Anafiel, as a courtesan and spy, ferreting out the dangerous secrets of the noble houses of Terre d'Ange. When she uncovers a treasonous conspiracy, however, her life takes on a new and deadly purpose. Set in a world reminiscent of late medieval and early Renaissance Europe, Carey's first novel portrays a society based upon political and sexual intrigue. The author's sensual prose, suitable for adult readers, should appeal to fans of Tanith Lee, Storm Constantine, and Terry Goodkind. Recommended for adult fantasy collections.

You can borrow it from me, if you want, or you can read it at the link below. It's 701 pages long. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did, but I liked it enough to read the next 3 novels.

While being a Guy doesn't impede me from liking "girly stuff" (Huge PoP fan, have fond memories of Jem and the Holograms) I just didn't like Pride and Prejudice... (It also didn't help that I had to re-read it for a Lit. Class)

Only one guy I know actually enjoyed that book and he wasn't forced to read it for a class. Most were. I think that's part of it. I, on the other hand, love the dry sense of humor and can find something funny in just about all of it. I like British humor. For instance, when I read "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" I thought it was pretty funny. Not laugh out loud funny, mind you, but I smiled a bit on most pages. Vault, on the other hand, who doesn't read British comedies, didn't think it was funny at all. He still enjoyed the book a lot but didn't read the same book I did, basically. He also read 40 pages of a Terry Pratchett book (Pyramids!) and didn't laugh so I took it away from him.
