TaDa!

I listened to The Thief and absolutely loved it. So I started listening to The Queen of Attolia--the second book. About 30 minutes into it I was sitting there stunned thinking, "that didn't just happen," over and over. So I decided to just get the print version because I can read faster than I can listen...

It wasn't available at our bookstore (that's right, we only have one) nor was it in at the library. Do you know how frustrating it is when you want to read a book right now and you can't get your hands on it?!

Then I thought to myself, I bet it is available at the middle school library...the very one where I will be librarian next year. One problem, I don't have keys yet. But, I decided to give it a try. The school was open due to open gym for a boy's basketball team. The coach was there who is a friend of mine, he gave me the keys to get into the main building. I found a janitor to let me into the library and..

I GOT IT! And The King of Attolia too! Breathe easy.

    I'm glad you liked THE THIEF, and can definitely sympathize with not finding a copy after 'that' happens.

    My favorite is KING -- I'm looking forward to know what you think of them!

  2. I completely know how you feel about the one bookstore thing. I was actually sitting here just thinking about it wonder who I could complain to...So I guess it'll be you. :) I have been there 3 times in the last 5 days and called once, for a book that was released last week Tuesday, that they said they have, but it's just still in a box in the back room. They keep saying they'll call when they get to it.... Ugh! It's definitly NOT Nordstrom Service! I feel like I should just go ahead and order it online, but by the time I do, they'll call and say they have it..
