I Got my Ancestor today

  • not even one little bounce?

    No bouncing…!

    Mr Fast Fingers (title bestowed upon me by guestford_junkie)

    *cough cough* maybe later when evryone has gone home cause I look and sound scary today!

    I need hardbacks of Infected and Contagious too.

    Mr Fast Fingers (title bestowed upon me by guestford_junkie)

    my PB copy of Infected was used too… but not perfect. I need to get me a new one.. I did see on the link that you sent tht I could get all 3 hardbacks Infected, Contagious and Ancestor for under $40.. tempting…

    No creases on spine or torn pages. Covers are perfect too.

    Mr Fast Fingers (title bestowed upon me by guestford_junkie)

    It’s gotta be new. Thanks for the link πŸ™‚

    Buy brand new from amazon.com

    Mr Fast Fingers (title bestowed upon me by guestford_junkie)

    and there are some hardcovers on there now (shippd from the us) Β£21.09 plus postage.. I might change my order – right now where is my card?!

    LINK HERE

    As far as I am aware, the version coming in the UK is a paperback.

    Mr Fast Fingers (title bestowed upon me by guestford_junkie)

    Is that a US edition?

    I got it today – the postie rang the doorbell and said, “Here you are. Special delivery from the mind of the FDO.”

    very true, brothers. well, now my weekend is here and it is time to curl up with my Ancestor. great weekend on the horizon πŸ˜€

    Figured it made more sense to get a $10 to go with it as opposed to buying a $16 book and paying $5 for shipping anyway; seeing as how Scott won’t be here until the 7th, it should get here in plenty of time regardless.

    I’m still waiting on mine. I feel like I’m 9 again waiting for the mailman to arrive with my toy that I sent in 10 boxtops to get. I want Ancestor now!

    i was gonna say that, about the lei. πŸ™‚ Ahh alcohol, is there any problem that you are not both the cause of and the solution to?

    **Just direct-a your feetza to Daddy Greene’s Pizza!**

    It’s so beautiful! And, yes, you can smell the horror coming off the pages!

    Why yes, apples. How did you know? [flickr-photo:id=4347154616] Pusher and member of the Gutter Sistren

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person wear a lei that wasn’t around alcohol.

    But I expect to possibly skip, that’s right, SKIP from my mailbox back to my house when mine finally gets here.

    I did not do super saver shipping but my still shows anticipated delivery date of the 26th. My ship date was the day of release. Amazon always does this to me because ours (here in Texas) comes from the Kansas warehouse. I’m still sending Amazon an email. If other warehouses can ship early then I see no reason that the Kansas warehouse can’t as well.

  • I’ll pick them up tomorrow. If you ordered the free super saver shipping, it takes longer, so you get them between the 26th and the 30th. That’s why I actually went with 2-day shipping. I had to be sure I had mine sooner because Scott will be here on the 27th.

  • I went to a Barnes & Noble store and could not find a copy. The store employee went to store room to look for the copy and could not find one. She checked all the different sections she thought somebody might have stocked it but could not find it. Finally she found all the stores copies in a stack of books waiting stocked.

    although i didn’t pre-order it. i was out of the loop on here for a while forgot about the contest, then a junkie sent me da link to the contest then i couldn’t find my wallet, i think the wife hid it from me…b/c it miraculously reappeared today. hmmm?!
