Let me tell you a wonderful story about my purchase of The Mortal Instruments books. I originally came just to buy The City of Bones, then I saw how expensive it was, It would have come to at least $30.00 dollars with tax, to me that's outrageous. Very rarely will I pay 30.00 for a book that is not even in hardcover. It's just not happening, but just this once, I gave in. I've been wanting to read this book for a while, and I caved.
While as I was going to pay for the book, the man at the cash says,
"We have a box set here, I could get it for you if you like, it's on sale."
I was sure he was about to try to sell me a box set that's priced at $70.00, and I was all prepared to turn him down. Then he tells me the price is $22.00. It's 50% off, and it's $22.00. I couldn't refuse it. I could have payed the same price for one book, or get three of them. What amazes me is that the guy could have let me pay $30.00, and he could have made a bigger sale. But he showed me the set and made less of a profit. He has made me a very happy customer. :)
I am very excited to read all of these books. The Mortal Instruments have such a huge hype over them right now with the movie out, and I really want to see if the books deserve all the hype that they are getting. It could be another book like the Maze Runner for me. So much hype, and I felt like I was the only one that didn't like it. As for Alice in Zombieland, It seems really intriguing, I love when people put spins on classic tales such as Alice in Wonderland. As soon as I finish reading Wicked Hunger and one other book, I'm going to start these ones, and I must say, I am BURSTING with excitement.
