Of course, there's the question of how in-character they'll be. Tie-in novels tend to suffer from being written by professional writers who...do not really seem like they are fans of the show so much as working for a paycheck, but maybe this time we will get lucky.
Second, remember how a few days ago I was telling you about that beautiful artistic Griffin-and-Sabine book I got? Dad checked out the library sale cart today, and he found two more Bantock books, #5 & 6, sequels I didn't even know existed. $1 each.
I don't know how ex-library books managed this, especially with pieces that pull out, but they are both in perfect condition - the last book even still has the loose "win a trip to Paris!" postcard tucked into the dust jacket. Better still, I performed magic and stripped every last trace of library markings from them - the only things left are a bit of ink from the 'discard' stamps that slipped off the sticker on the inside of the back covers, and they literally disappear into the background images so you have to know what you're looking for to even see them.
(yes, in most cases, I love the way ex-library copies look and will even leave the plastic wrap on, but there are certain books I just want to have a 'bookstore' look)
I AM SUCH A GREAT MOOD. Thursdays are the best.
