Happiness is in an (e)book.

So I just need to share the joy. Yesterday I was browsing through the new books list at my digital library and found out they have The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. I swear I was just about to buy this one on my next book buying shopping spree. THEN tonight, I noticed that they added even more and guess what I found? DARKNESS BE MY FRIEND!!! This is the 4th book in John Marsden's Tomorrow series, and I have been patiently waiting for it to be re-printed. Apparently even the Scholastic store is out of stock on this book and the only ones I'd been able to find cost 30$ - for a paperback! Or, I could have had it shipped from Australia - 30$ or so too. But now, now, I got it from my e-library! I so happy I could practically weep. Why didn't I just by the ebook version you ask? Well, I'm a bit of a crazed book collector in that I like to have all the books in a series look the same. And now I can because I can read the ePUB book and still buy the paperback when it goes back in stock. See this?  

Boing Boing Boing

This is me jumping up and down! 

Hehe... like I said, just had to share the joy.
