    Had 10 mins to kill before dinner was ready to be picked up (it's No Cook Friday), stopped by the thrift store, just checking the book shelves - and what do you think I found for a mere $4.99? Uh-huh. Doctor Sleep. I'm getting jammied up and directly into bed to begin reading. Aren't you beyond excited for me? I knew if I held out long enough, it would turn up.

    Yay! Have fun! So need to immerse myself into a book. Jealous. Been so busy with work lately, I have read, but not those reads when you sit in one place for hours.

    Enjoy the book- call it Ka, as it was meant to be read.

    I read, I napped, I returned here. Going back to read and nap some more. I love Friday nights. I love a new SK novel. Plus - rain's coming!

    You know, most of the books I get at thrift stores are in much better shape when I get them, than when I get through with them. I ate a pork chop while reading last night - so things are kinda greasy. And then my 10 year old was talking in my face and sneezed right into the page I was reading. It makes me so happy that I don't spend $30 on a book.

    When I had a 10 year old I got all my books from the library (or sometimes bought them second hand). He is 28 years old now so I can afford a little splurge now and then. Plus hubby is up North making good money so might as well spend it on something good like a book!

    i am jealous, I paid 19 euro for Dr sleep and I have no regrets. read it twice. I am now saving up for a certain book by a certain writer on June 3. it is 28.99. Maybe i am mad to pay it, but a. love stephen king b. love books so it doesnt bother me to pay. I prefer to read the New stephen king for 30 euro then spend the 30 euro on getting sloshed.

    Me, too booklover - to me it is money well spent as you have a book that you can read again and perhaps pass on to others when you are gone from this world. Oh my - I am a bit philosophical today :hmm:

    I waited until it was freed up at my local library. Gives me an excuse to stop by while running errands and amble around to see what else I've missed.

    Can you not order the book in your library online or when it is due out, put in a pre-order. I usually do that, but then again i usually end up buying the book - can't wait 6 weeks. to be honest, i would rather pay 17 euro for a SK book then 25 euro on drink and spend the whole night going to the toilet.

    Sure, I could have done that, but I didn't mind waiting.

    Neither did Doctor Sleep, and that's the beauty of books. They'll wait for years, if need be. The Karl Edward Wagner book I read while waiting for DS had been waiting on my shelf for many, many years.

    I noticed Dr sleep paperbacks for £3.99 in my local supermarket, it was the same cover as the hardback (black background, green writing, white cat) except for one - white background, green writing, black cat - the white one was so cool I almost bought it again.

    I'm not really one for collectors editions, as long as I have one physical version of the book, I'm happy - I have the hard back (oddly enough, a limited edition with purple details - it was exclusive to where I bought it, and the only ones they had). If I didn't already have it I would choose the most asthetically pleasing, which in this case would be white.
