A Saturday Trip to Chapters

spross dropped by the house yesterday afternoon after he got off work, and we went out to basically get me out of the house for a bit. :)

We went into Future Shop at South Keys to pick up something for his dad, which they unfortunately didn't have and couldn't order, and then he and I went into the local Chapters store. I didn't go into the store looking for any books in particular, to be honest, and I wasn't actually planning to spend any money in there at all, but the best laid plans of mice and men as they say...

One of the books I've been trying to get hold of since it came out early this year is the Adam Roberts's short story collection, Adam Robots. I've had the book on pre-order from Amazon.ca since December or so, but the book hasn't shown up and they keep sending me messages about how they're still trying to get hold of it. Well, I found a copy of the trade paperback in Chapters today, and after waiting so long to get a copy of the book, caved in and bought it there on the spot. Quite pleased with myself.

Saw a few other books that definitely intrigued me, but nothing that I really wanted to pick up, given how tight money is right now, and that fact that I've ordered a few books the last few months on-line.
