Okay, so I know that a lot of people are going to be upset, jealous and possibly angry, but I have a copy of Spirit Bound in my hands!!!
For some reason some of the book stores in Sweden decided to put it on the shelves as soon as the books came in, making them available as early as Friday May 7!
Here is a picture of my book, that I managed to buy yesterday:
I haven't read much of it yet. In a way, I want it to last, but I don't know how long I can drag it out for. :-)
I had a bit of a scare, actually. I bought it (along with a few books written by friends of Richelle Mead's) on my way to a Twilight meet-up, and somehow I managed to get confused because they had the trade paper version of Blood Promise, and the hardcover version of Spirit Bound. For some reason I got it in my head that they were the same book, but luckily one of my Twilight friends was actually reading Blood Promise while she was waiting for everyone else! Seeing the book made me realize I'd gotten the wrong book, so it was nothing to do but run back to the shop and buy the right book! Phew!
I know that there are others in Sweden, who've managed to get a hold of the book, but are there other countries in which the book is already available?
It would be interesting to see what the policy in different countries is about this, since the release date isn't until May 18! I'm thinking of asking the store, where I bought the book, about their policy. (I didn't want to ask them when I bought it, in case it made them realize their mistake and refuse to let me buy it. :-)
