    Hi

    Good story, Gwen, and you've a marvellous novel in front of you. Woo Hoo.

    And Book, I recently re-read The Talisman the Black House back-to-back which added to the enjoyment of both IMO.

    Some great stories of bargains etc here - don't you feel even better when you've got a bargain?

    Long days and pleasant nights

After waiting 20 minutes in the checkout line behind screaming William, age 2, and in front of Mrs. Run her Buggy into my Ankles I was ready to drop it and run. But hey I'm a fan right and this was going to save me 3 bucks! Finally I make my way to the cash register and the total comes to $21.34. "What happened to $16.95 that is printed on the cover?" I ask the teenage cashier with a safety pin in his nose and more metal in his mouth than I had when I had braces. He very sweetly and patiently explained that I now had to go to Customer Service for price discrepancies. There I stand in another line, at least in this one I was entertained by a man who was arguing with security about someone who was stalking him in the store. Reaching the counter I received my $3 refund from a smiling Asian woman who spoke no English. 45 mins later I walk out with my very own hardback Duma Key. I'm either a dedicated fan with the patience of a saint or a nutball with too much time on my hands that day. I can't wait for the first bite as soon as the time is right to start it!!
    BOOOO Walmart!!! HISSSSSSSSS!!! Very Very Bad

    I just re-vamped my King library and bought the Duma Key. I had some paperback but I love the hardback books. So I went to half Price books and got a ton of them for $5.98 ea. I also am trying to keep up my collection on CD's on tape. Anyone know where I can get Insomnia on CD?

    Thanks
