Aww...I just know my copy has been shipped, but don't know exactly when it will arrive. I'm just happy that I know it will show up before I have to fly to Canada at the end of next week; I'm looking forward to reading it on the flight!

How the heck did you manage to chop off your eyes? Never mind...I don't want to know.

Does your screen print in Braille?

so you all reserved harry potter, even though they will have 1,000 copies at costco tomorrow for less than half the price of what you're all paying.

I doubt it...but we will see tomorrow.

Well, since Costco membership costs more than the book, I doubt it would turn out cheaper to buy it there. I order most of my books online anyway, and they just happened to be taking the pre-orders when I was ordering some other books, so now I don't have to wait in lines to get it (I ordered enough other stuff at the time that the shipping is free too). If I see it cheaper somewhere, well, I still have the convenience of it being brought to me instead of having to fight off a bunch of kids to get to it. After reading the other 5, I couldn't wait for the paperback version on this one.

(Hey, if Zz can have his Disney obsession, I can have my Harry Potter obsession!)

in vancouver, a local bookstore released 14 copies yesterday as a mistake by the staff. The buyers were given a court order not do disclose any of the information on the book, untill it's release tomorrow.

the daily show claimed them "the least busy court in the world'.

:rofl: It was probably for their own protection. Nobody wants to hear from someone else what's in the book anyway! If anyone spoils the story for me before I read it, they should get the death penalty!

well the half blood prince is really harr- oh, you don't want me to spoil the ending...

19. Jul 16, 2005

online is alot cheapers...its like 40-60 % off. i paid 24 CDN(?20US?)...i doubt costco can beat that price plus you get a rebate from Chapters that could be up to 1000$..thus i can by the Kandel Neurosci book that i've been wanting to get and teh ALife conference set and a physics book. and as for being nerdy and stuff...look at the forum you participate in. Games are nerdy too. and so is reading in itself...so geez. moonbear:you flying to canada ? cool wher eyou going to. Mcmaster hospital? 20. Jul 16, 2005 Moonbear Staff Emeritus I got it for$17.99 from Amazon, but I don't think it will arrive tomorrow unless they shipped it overnight, which I doubt they did.

I have a conference in Quebec City. That's assuming I actually make all my flights (no direct flights, and I know they've been busily overbooking the flights there because the seats were already all assigned for several flights, yet they were still trying to sell me tickets for them :grumpy:). Stupid conference organizers pick the peak of tourist season. They kept sending out notices to book rooms and flights back in March, before they even had a program out yet! How could anyone book that early when we didn't even know the meeting schedule yet?
