The obsession reaches new heights...
Stephenie Meyer's new book Breaking Dawn comes out August 2nd. To my immense surprise, while at Costco the other day, I found that the new "Special Edition" copies of Eclipse include a first chapter preview of the new book. So of course I proceeded to spend the next five minutes wandering around Costco with my nose buried in the back of the book, squealing and skipping like a school girl. Ben and Jessie mocked me. About halfway through the chapter, I felt bad that I was ignoring my friends who were shopping with me (or rather, I with them), so I reassured myself that the chapter would be posted online and set the book down.
Well, it wasn't. I rushed home and rushed onto Stephenie's official website, to be met with an announcement that they were waiting for the release of the book to publish the preview online. WHY?! I googled and googled, but they were efficient at upholding their copyright and taking down anyone who tried to share the goodness. So what do you do in a situation like this?
A normal person would resign themselves to wait until the book came out and read the whole thing.
I got up and drove 2 blocks to Barnes & Noble just to finish the chapter.
And it was good.
