I Was Supposed to Buy Coffee…
But then I saw this:
Neil Gaiman’s Death: The High Cost of Living
The first place I go to in Powerbooks is always where the graphic novels are. There’s this one book that I’m looking for which I passed up a number of months ago and everytime I go to Powerbooks, I take a look if they already have Jill Thompson’s At Death’s Door. Unfortunately, there still aren’t any copies in stock so I went on browsing the other graphic novels they had.
I was about to leave when I noticed that I haven’t checked one shelf that contains more graphic novels. So I went over and there, in between copies of some other graphic novels was a solitary copy of Death: The High Cost of Living. I immediately asked if there were anymore left and they told me that was the only one left.
So I bought it. I’ve already read it but I have this thing with books I’ve read, most especially if I’ve had other books by the same author or graphic novels: If it’s something that I’d read and liked the first time, I’d almost definitely buy it so I can come back to reading it anytime I want.
Anyways, Ann kinda gave me this playful punch in the arm when she found out I paid five hundred plus bucks for a comic book when I was avoiding a one hundred plus bucks worth of a caffeine craving. Somehow, whenever Ann and I talk about saving up money, we both end up spending some and throwing the idea of saving up a little bit out of the window.
Well, at least I have another Neil Gaiman graphic novel to add to my collection.
