I bought Christine Feehan's "dark possession" yesterday at wal-mart, got home and started to read and thought after one paragraph, that this sure sounded familiar.  I looked in my bookshelf where I keep my hardcovers and there it WAS!!!  Arrrrggggg! Wal-mart will not take a book back around here.

I'll post it in a couple  days when I can get some more postage but the thing is...I was excited to get a new book in my genre and I already have it!  That made my you-know-what want to sew buttonholes.

I've done that before, but they (K-Mart) took it back.

That made me LOL ! Never heard that expression before.

I feel for you though, I've done it a time or ten myself :(

I'm constantly doing that. I bought Michah THREE times and still can't get rid of them! Course, when you have over 2000 books at home, it's hard to remember them all.

I've done that so many times. If I was organized enough I could take a list with me showing books I've read, but then I'd be toting a 5 subject notebook. :) Hard enough to remember to take my wishlist with me.

To make the story worse though is ..I had the latest Kelly Armstrong book in my hand (they had only one left) but I thought because of the book cover ( much different from the others in the series)  that it wasn't one in her series I'm reading now, so I put it back.   When I got home and after I threw my fit about buying one I already had, I looked at my WL and the Armstrong book is one I needed to catch me up with her series!  AAArrrggg again!  At least I'm not the only one who does this.
