So guess what is my early Christmas present to myself?
LOL! Yep! Was able to score this book! LOL, I've been stalking the online indicator since last Wednesday and it finally showed up today!! What did I do? Of course, I rushed to the bookstore. Man, it was crowded!! I'm surprised because Coles bookstores are smaller, so they usually get less customers, but yeah, lots of people.
On my way to the romance section, I ran into James who gave me a coupon.
Me: Thanks, but no thanks. I already got it.
James: Are you aware of the promotion ending today?
Me: Yep, buy 3, get the 4th book free, right? *reached romance section*
James: Are you looking for anything in particular?
Me: *Already standing in front of the many copies of Forbidden Falls* Nope, all I want is right in front of me :D *pointing at Forbidden Falls*
James: Really? That's all? Because there got a lot of new books and there were still in boxes. Christine Feehan?
Me: Nope, I'm good. *start browsing the aisles to find 3 more books to buy*
James: Let me go check on the outside of the boxes... I'll try to get the authors names for you. *walks away*
So I'm there browsing. Although I love Coles because they put the new releases as soon as they get it on the shelf, they don't have much older releases because of lack of space :( So it was actually kind of hard to find 3 more books. Saw Early Dawn by Catherine Anderson, but I haven't read the last release and the last few before that were meh. Picked Believe by Victoria Alexander and put it back down. Although I like her, Believe was a re-print and her earlier work... hmmm. Checked for Crimson by Jordan Summers, but they didn't have it :(
James: *walking towards me with two books* Any of those you'd be interested?
Me: *looking at Scoundrel's Kiss by Carrie Lofty and Sinful Surrender by Beverly Kendall* Nope, sorry.
James: Yeah, I didn't think so.
Seriously, it's really the best when you get to know the employees and when the employees know you :) Felt like VIP treatment :D
So, want to know what I walked out with, besides Forbidden Falls by Robyn Carr?
What about you all? How have you been? Are you in the Christmas madness?
