I didn't think that through ...

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins comes out tomorrow.  FYI, the first two books in this trilogy (The Hunger Games and Catching Fire) were the, so I seriously expect good things from this one.

I ordered it on Amazon a month ago to ensure that my copy will be delivered straight to my door, thereby facilitating my laziness, one of my more significant character traits.

But I didn't think about another trait of mine -- the desire for instant gratification -- and the fact that ordering a new anything online guarantees that it will arrive two days after the actual release date.  So now I'm trying to decide whether expending the effort of going to a bookstore tomorrow will be worth being able to read my new book immediately.

Impatience versus laziness.

An eternal struggle.


  1. If it helps, mine was just delivered, so maybe laziness can win after all.

  2. I'm having that same struggle!
