But I have an very rare one, so that’s some consolation.
No, don’t go feeling sorry for me, I was hugely disorganised, and like much of my life, was a catalogue of bad decisions! I had entirely forgotten that I had – for some bizarro reason known only to myself a few months ago (probably excitement) – pre-order Dance With Dragons and it wasn’t until I got the email from Amazon yesterday saying that it had been dispatched that I was even aware of it.
I was planning to drive the 10 miles to Caister, try there, and if no luck, go into WH Smith in Yarmouth. But as I already had a book coming, I thought it would be stupid to buy another one under the financial circumstances! I DID call in at the other Tescos in Stalham, but they are completely crap and didn’t have it—which was probably just as well.
So, I can manage for a few days. But I’ll be careful what I read on the net—I had enough spoilers for the Potter Books due to morons posting things without a cut. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow as planned and I can pick it up on Thursday. Can’t wait!
BUT REALLY, AMAZON???? What’s the fucking point in having a pre-order system if you can’t bloody get the books to the doorsteps on the day? This isn’t the first time I’ve asked this either, as I got burned with the last Potter book, too. You’d think I’d have learned. But NO!© Copyright 2011 Erastes, All rights Reserved.
