I was out for a coffee with a friend this morning. The coffee shop just happened to be next to Chapters. I ordered Born in Death online 'cause it was much cheaper doing it that way than it was getting it in the store and when the book came the other day, there was a mystery card inside. Apparently, with a $50 purchase, I had a chance to win $1,000 when they scanned the card.
So with all kinds of releases coming out in the next few weeks, could I wait?
Of course I couldn't!!!! Dumb, dumb, dumb! Instead I took my mystery card, and bought some books I really didn't plan on getting (see recent buys).
And darn it all - I didn't win $1,000. Nope - not even close! Instead I only got $5 off. As Sybil says le sigh.
And to top if off, when I got home and was entering them in the spread sheet, I discovered a couple of them were Avons!!!! So - the inadvertently get another chance. They are ghost stories though, a genre that doesn't have that many and one I enjoy so maybe I'll have to eat my words and enjoy them at the same time.
