Dear ebay users,
If you would love to make me happy [and you would, really] please stop posting pictures of your pile of books with just the spines facing me. I mean, I like knowing that you didn't read the book to the point where the spine cracked and died a horrific death, as that's always really annoying to find out later, but seeing as I'm on a picture binge here, I need to see the covers too! Sometimes I wish ebay had a tip jar for sellers. Then I could tip the ones who do the covers, even if they're not the ones I'm looking for.

I know, you're thinking, "Dude, I signed up for a running tally of the number of times -37 was used, not to hear about ebay!"

I'm dragging my feet. Part of this is practical as the moment I hit 51, I have to make sure I've lined up a copy of #52 [it's on my small list of SVH books I do not own] and part of it is actually part of the process. As in, when I need covers, I hit up ebay. Since I'm about to start Decisions, I'm doing the annoying part of the legwork. Namely trying to find the various covers. I get cranky when all I can find are the classic circle covers, or later in the series, the revised look when I know the original does, in fact, exist. Of course, I get cranky over a lot of things.

Anyway, this is also to let you know that if you ever want to submit pictures, I'm more than willing to accept them and love you forever. And not like Elizabeth promises to love someone forever. I mean forever, not until someone better comes along. Scout's honor.*


* Fine, I was only a brownie and that only lasted a year, but it was a very serious year, ja?

Okay, I'm back to ebay.
