Hey Look! It Came Off!


A recent purchase at Half Price Books (only $2!). I didn't like the sticker.

  4. I loved that book. And I hate those Oprah stickers. Also, love Half Priced Books so much.

  7. I don't have something against the idea of a book club per se, but I do think Oprah isn't doing it for the right reasons.

  8. Amused, Thanks I'm looking forward to it!

    Ben, Agreed. Book clubs in general are great. Oprahs Book Club just isn't my thing.

  12. Glad the sticker came off - and that you bought a wonderful book! I wonder when Eugenides will release another novel...

  13. Greg, Thanks! You're awesome.

    comtemplatrix, I had a sneaky feeling I wasn't the only one!

    Nymeth, Oh my gosh I am 10 times more excited for this book now. I had no idea it was your favorite novel!

    petekarnas, This will be my first Eugenides and if it's as good as everyone says it is, I'm sure I'll be running for The Virgin Suicides. Then, I will be sad there isn't any more and I'll be asking the same question you are.

  15. Too funny!

    ...and I just bought this last night! I paid $6 - still a great price. ...and funnier still, I almost purchased your "current read". My friend Luke was showing it to me, but there was no sale sticker so I passed!

    Great minds...

  16. Bybee, I know! You can't beat $2.

    Kate, So far I really really love EL&IC. If you ever get a chance to buy it on sale you should!

    reederreads, yay!

  17. I totally do the same thing -- in fact, I'm a bit of a fanatic about getting sticky things off my books. I've even gone so far as to use oil (only on shiny covers) to remove pesky stickers!

    Thanks for commenting on my latest blog post!
