Five Bucks

I apologize if this has already been posted elsewhere in other threads, but I just got a pretty good laugh walking into Barnes & Noble and seeing PoD in the five dollar section.

LOL. Yeah, it has dropped in price quite dramatically. Kind of like SoD, which now is selling for $6.99 on Amazon.com (from an original price of $27.95) in hardback!

JoD, meanwhile, is already marked down from $27.95 to $18.45 on Amazon.com.

Yeah, I saw them in the discount section of a major bookstore a few months back. A very welcome trend, this is :)

They should pay us to read them. :lol:

(I guess, if you consider all the sick enjoyment we (I?) get out of bashing them, they are in a way? :shock: Definitely an unhealthy relationship! ;) )

If you weren't doing such a good job at it I'd advise you to seek help.

Whaaaaaa?!!! That's not even a complete sentence. Are you really 14?


And back on topic, This is a positive sign. The publishers are surely recognizing now that these new books simply don't have the stuff to be legends like the originals.
