...this is for you! I recently called a bookstore to check on something else and was asked if I wanted to pre-order her 4th book in the vampire series titled The Host. No. I don't. I don't buy books before I've read them. So, I checked out our local library and they list at least 10 books on pre-order. So, I made a request for it and guess what? #2 in line. How cool is that? I imagine they'll get these books in and processed fairly quickly as well so there won't be much of a wait. My advice: contact your local library and see if you can get on the waiting list now. Before everyone else does.
