If Only I Had Known

As I'm sure many of you know (and many of you don't) Breaking Dawn is making it's debut appearance in bookstores everywhere tonight at 12:01. Even as much as I love the series, I didn't reserve a copy. I really don't want the ending spoiled, but I also don't want to buy hardcover (I love paperbacks!), plus I want to go to sleep tonight. So I'm hoping to be able to borrow it from a friend who did pre-order it when she's done reading it. Then, on a whim, I got onto my new library's website and did a search for the book and tried to put it on hold, figuring it was like ACPL and I wouldn't be able to. I was wrong. I have a hold on it, but I'm number 264. Crap! If only I had thought to do that earlier, I might have had a better chance of getting it in a reasonable amount of time. I'm still hoping my friend will pull through for me and let me read her copy. I need to know what happens! I knew I should I have just sucked it up and payed the outrageous amount for the hardcover. But then my series would be all weird because 3 would be in paperback and 1 in hardcover.....I think I'm too picky about my bookshelves. So, if any of you read the book and would be willing to let me borrow it, I will meet you wherever necessary if I'm able. And don't spoil anything for me!

  1. OK - I bought it, but it's free supersaver postage, so you'll just have to be patient!
