I caved. I caved. I was bored by his previous book The Corrections. So why would I buy Freedom? It was 70% off. I figure that makes it Ok. A $28 book dropped down to $8.40, who can resist? That's cheaper than the paperback ($16) of this book. I want to see if all the hype is justified. Technically it didn't cost me anything out of pocket since I got a gift card for my birthday. So I can honestly say, "I didn't spend any money on that book." And just so I didn't feel like a total sellout I also bought a few more goodies from Borders.
I also bought Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, Wither by Lauren DeStefano, Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, and Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs. I didn't stop there either. I'm a Lost fanatic, so I ducked into Best Buy to get the last two seasons. I think everyone will agree with me that nothing says, "Happy Birthday!!" like a little retail therapy!!!
