Someone is going to look at my order and say “What?”

Published August 25, 2019 by Iphis of Scyros

It all started out innocently enough.  (If you can call it that.)

I came online tonight with the intention of going to Barnes & Noble’s website and ordering the screenplay to Hail, Caesar!…because I’m going to write a fanfic and some of the characters (*cough*Hobie*cough*) have really distinctive speaking patterns and it’ll be easier to try and match up to it (or at least not fail as badly) if I have the written text handy.  And I’d already looked on Amazon and seen that the Coen brothers did have the screenplay published.  (This, of course, was not a surprise.)

Only Barnes & Noble didn’t have it, except as a Nook ebook, only I don’t have a Nook and I prefer physical books anyhow.  But I really don’t want to be supporting Amazon if I can avoid it.

So I looked around on a couple of other sites I usually go to, and striking out on all of them, ended up at AbeBooks.  Where most of the books are used (which I feel bad about, but what else could I do?) and thus really cheap.  So, I figured I’d also order one of the books I’d planned on getting after hearing about it in that last class I took.

An hour (or so) later, I finally completed the order with about half of Émile Zola’s Rougon-Macquart saga in my shopping basket.

So, yeah, like I said, someone’s gonna look at that and be like “wtf is up with this girl?”

Because I ordered eleven 19th century French novels, and one screenplay.  (Probably would have been 12, if I hadn’t bought one in person the last time I was in a bookstore.)
