I have not been this excited about a new book in a long time!
This pre-order has transported me back in time. Ten years ago, I pre-ordered the 7th and final book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Growing up, I loved pre-ordering these books and remember the anticipation and the glee when I finally arrived at Barnes and Noble and could see my book among the wall of books others had pre-ordered. Going to the store to pick up my Harry Potter books, or any Barnes and Noble trip for that matter, are some of my most favorite and strongest childhood memories. I knew that store like the back of my hand. I knew where to find my books and my dream job was working as a sales person. (I knew deep down I would be fired quickly for reading on the job, so I never applied! I did work at a library for a short time and that was probably my most enjoyable job prior to teaching! Shelving books…what a job!)
I don’t pre-order many books and I don’t spend much on books. I am a bargain hunter. I did find a bargain on this book, 40% off, but it was still more than I usually pay. But, it’s Harry Potter. This is my exception for my bargain rule.
What books do you pre-order? How often do you pre-order and how do you decide?
I am waiting patiently and can’t wait to post a review!
**Update: Amazon just emailed that it should ship by August 3! Fingers crossed! (Why oh why did I delay in pre-ordering???)
