The SandCastle Son and I did something I rarely do: Made a trip to the mall. All it takes is a little proper motivation. In this case today is opening day for Monster Hunter Alpha. Actually we didn't go into the mall, just to Barnes & Noble which is at the mall which means dealing with mall parking and that's a big reason I don't go to the mall!
Helpful hint to my good friends at B&N: It's easier to buy a book when it's out on the floor and people can see it!
We looked around for the book without success and waited a while at the information desk while the one clerk explained the basics of the Nook to a couple qtips. Eventually a second clerk arrived looked it up for us. She led us to the SciFi section where books #1 & 2 were on the shelf. Then she went "into the backroom"... and came back with... a Halo book. She enlisted the help of "She who is in charge of special features". Apparently the feature won't start for a couple days yet. But at least she came back with a copy of the book.
The SCSon is reading it now I and I should get my turn in about a day and a half when he's finished.
Hey Larry - When are you coming to town to sign it?
Oh and clerk #1 was still explaining the basics to the qtips when we left.
