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.yomamma said: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.
: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!yomamma said: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'.
I got it for $17.99 from Amazon, but I don't think it will arrive tomorrow unless they shipped it overnight, which I doubt they did.neurocomp2003 said:online is alot cheapers...its like 40-60 % off. i paid 24 CDN(?20US?)...i doubt costco can beat that price plus you get a rebate from Chapters that could be up to 1000$ ..thus i can by the Kandel Neurosci book that i've been wanting to get and teh ALife conference set and a physics book.
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?moonbear:you flying to canada ? cool wher eyou going to. Mcmaster hospital?

Not a fan of twists?siddharth said:The ending is quite unexpected and sudden. I still can't believe what I just read.
In my opinion, the previous books were better.
