OMG! Look what I got in the mail today!
Remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about “Holly’s Inbox” and said that there was a sequel that was ONLY released in the UK? Well, guess what. I FOUND IT! When I was originally looking, it was not available for sale on the UK version of Amazon, although now it is.
I searched high and wide on the web and ended up finding it for sale on Alibris.com. I’d never heard of this website before, but they sell used books, movies, music, textbooks, etc., and have a special section for rare and collectible books. This book only cost me about $7 total. Yes, I said $7. The book itself was $3 and shipping was $4. I know… crazy cheap, huh? It was shipped from a seller in NY but it did originally come from the UK (see the British Red Cross price tag on it?). It’s kind of yellowed and some pages are slightly ripped, but it was $7. I’ll deal with it.
I can’t wait to start reading it! I have to finish my current book first though (“Winter Garden” by Kristin Hannah); I can’t handle reading multiple books at one time.
