Just a FYI---just went to Wal-Mart and it now has "Dark Lover" in a special sale for $4.  I've

not seen this book at Wally World before so it must be a limited time special of some kind.

I know this book is on a lot of people's wish lists, so it might worth checking out your local

store.

Yeah!  I just bought this the other day.  It has a different ISBN#.  It's a special Walmart edition.  There isn't anyone wishing for this yet, so people might want to add it, they may get it faster then the regular one.  The ISBN's are 9780451223593 and 0451223594.

Even though the ISBN's are different, the book itself (content) should be the same, right?   I also picked up a

Rebecca York book ("Killing Moon") as it was also $4.  I've never read anything by her yet so I hope I'm

not disappointed.

The content is definetely the same.  I also picked up Rebecca York's Killing Moon.  Also for $4 I got Dark Symphony by Christine Feehan, Jane's Warlord by Angela Knight, and Wicked Nights by Nina Bangs.

Yeah, WalMart gets a lot of the older titles for cheap, you can get them at the bookstores too, they are reissues.

Yes, but Walmart books are normally 5.97, these are just out for the spooky Halloween special and actually have a Walmart price on the actual cover.  If you look up the ISBN's for these books they will actually say (Walmart Edition) on them.

Having "Wal-Mart price 2/$8" on the cover doesn't bother me.  I'm all about good, cheap books---which

is one reason I *love* PBS!!!

Well, that was fast!  I went to get another copy yesterday to post on here and the entire section of 2 for $8 books was gone. I guess it was only supposed to be up for a few days, as I really don't think they sold all those books that quickly.

Lover Avenged released today so I ran out and bought it at Books-A-Million because I'm a member and I'd like to give my business to them because they discount so many really good books in the closeouts section.

Book was $19.9- at BAM and then I ran into Wal-Mart and it was $17.3-. HOW LAME!!! It's a BOOKSTORE! All they sell is books. You would really think that they could do a better job at pricing them. Anyways, I'm ticked and really considering just reading the book and then taking it back. That would serve them right for over pricing!

Moral of the story: If you're buying #7 get it at Wal-Mart!

I got my book through Amazon with a few others and free shipping. I never get new releases from the local bookstore (which is Barnes and Nobles) because they charge ridiculous prices. I can not WAIT to read this next book!!
