  • Mood:


 I'm so depressed.

For one moment, I was on top of the world, thinking that in Singapore, when we pass back through in a couple of days, I'd be able to get my hands on some books.

Knowing that Borders might not have them in stock, a few days ago, I contacted them and asked them to get The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin, Hammer of God by Karen Miller, and Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb for me.

They wrote back. Bad news.  It will take 6-8 weeks!  Not fair!

Perhaps there is a glimmer of hope; there are other bookstores in Singapore.

*Gets set to Google*

ETA:  I seem to have found all three on Books Kinokuniya. I'm asking to reserve them now. *crosses fingers*
