Yesterday I was hanging out at the local book store, waiting for them to put out the newest edition of QUILT SAMPLER magazine. I love that magazine and always wait
impatiently anxiously for the next issue. I asked the person working the magazine section if she had seen it yet (because it always sells out quickly!) She very kindly checked the computer and came back and told me that it was in the back, in a box, and wouldn't be put out for a day or two. Seriously. I'm standing in front of you offering you money and this is the response. Now, I understand those shipment boxes are big, and the magazines are heavy, and the boxes are not marked with which magazines they contain...but I want my magazine dang it!!! So I said I could wait, and gave her my very nicest smile. No luck. She wasn't budging. So I did the only thing I could do...I found someone else, played dumb, and asked them if it had come in yet. Same response. At this point I was starting to sweat. Really, you are telling me it's in the building and I CAN'T HAVE IT? Maybe it's just me, but I was not happy with that answer TWICE. I continued to smile and use my very best manners (in spite of the rage frustration going on in my brain.) So that really only left me one option...and NO I did NOT break into the storage room and start shredding boxes, though the thought did cross my mind. :)
So I went around the store and starting snapping photos of all the books I want to buy online for my iPad. Yeah, well, that's how I get my revenge. What can I say? There are loads of good books out that I want to read and hope to get some more reading done this summer.
Just wondering, have you read any of the books above, and would you recommend them? It's always nice to get someone else's opinion. Oh, and don't tell me if you have your copy of QUILT SAMPLER yet, that might push me right over the edge. Thanks.
If you need me, I'll be at the bookstore.
UPDATE: The bookstore called this morning and said the magazine was unpacked. I have purchased it and am SO happy about carpool line today!!! I have something good to read while I wait. Yippeeee!
