Go fig. So finally, after a year at the bookstore looking for Sorcery and Cecelia and finally succumbing to the temptation to buy the reprint in hardcover instead of waiting for the new mass market to come out, the first edition paperback has shown up. I bought it anyway (for a dollar)... I figure I will sic it on a friend back at home.

Funny things heard at the bookstore (which is a used bookstore):

Customer (on the phone): Hi, I'm wondering if you could find some books for me?
Me: Sure, but just to let you know, we don't have our inventory on the computer. I can check the shelves for you though.
C: Ok, it should be really easy, they should all be in the same section.
Me (thinking): Yes! Please let it be fiction! (says) Great, what would that be?
C: Textbooks.
Me: ...

Customer (with a sort of shocked whisper): Do you know some of these books look used?

Customer: Hi, can you tell me where your non-fiction section is?

The first one was a one-time occurence (so far), but I've been asked questions two and three multiple times. Although I suppose question number two is actually a pretty nice compliment if one is a used bookstore.

Wandered into Borders. It was the boy's fault for going to EB Games, which was right next door, and therefore it is completely not my fault that I was sucked in and ended up buying something. That is my excuse and I am sticking to it ;). Found Ryan Adams' Love Is Hell (both parts! compiled!) for $9.99 and then found out there was some buy three get one free thing, and then spent half an hour looking for more CDs. Unfortunately, all the CDs I want are still to expensive or not stocked, so I only got Ryan Adams. But! Flogging Molly's new CD is out! I want! And I want the Assassins revival soundtrack very much as well.
