A book that's not even out yet


Okay. Not really. Listed, in order of obsession
1.) Harry Potter! It's over. Unless J.K Rowling writes a new series about a certain Albus Potter. Or, alternatively, she could do one of those prequel things with Dumbledore and Grindewald. And, since it's an entirely different story, it won't suck!
2.) Still Got Legs! Which does not refer to the fact that I am still bipedal(though I am), but to an album about Doctor Who. It has been released, and I have the MP3 (LINK to listen for free!)

Okay. I'm kinda lying and telling the truth and getting distracted all at the same time about that. Because 1.) Borders is in extremely serious financial trouble and if you have about 500,000,000 dollars lying around, would you mind saving them, like, tonight? Because 2.) It's the only really large, good, bookstore in my area and 3.) Shopping for books online is dumb because 4.) I can't randomly pick up a book I'm interested in and decide if I want it because 5.) I can't read and flip through for Quotes. The captialization there is because there are quotes "Luke, I am your father" and then there are Quotes "The course of true love never did run smooth." (Star Wars vs. Shakespeare. you decide on the quality of that comparison.)
The absolute truth is I got a bundle of new books when my family and I took our (hopefully not last) trip to Borders last night I got several books (LINK) (LINK) (LINK but this isn't the one I have. Same price, but mine is all red and gold colored)  (LINK) (LINK) (LINK)
The lying is that I don't have the book I'm going to talk about. It's called The Fault in our Stars (LINK) and it doesn't come out until May!
It's supposed to be about cancer and foreign pop music and other interesting stuff!
Okay, fine this has nothing to do with reviewing or discussing a novel, but honestly people, pre-ordering books is fun! I'm exceedingly excited about this book, I'm extremely glad I have new books, and I can't wait until May!
Also, possible quad-illionares out there, reading this, your mission is to save Borders! It's what a good person would do! Or  hero!  Or a Librarian! Or ANYONE WITH A HEART.
