Summer is hot. These books are hotter. Be cool & pre-order today!

by davincikittieApril 30, 2012

I know what you’re thinking.  No, I’m not a mind reader (most of the time *grin*) but I’ve been reluctant to pre-order too.  It’s only as my TBR pile has started reaching ridiculous new heights, that I realized the beauty and simplicity of pre-ordering books.  Why pre-order when you can stop in your favorite store or jump online release day and buy it then?  Ok smartypants, here’s a list…

  • No standing in line. Lines suck. You should avoid them, and other people, at all costs. This is why reading is awesome. The only other people we have to deal with are the characters we are secretly obsessed with.
  • No having to check the mail. This one is for all you ebook book junkies. Unless you are one of the fortunate few whose mailbox is actually conveniently located near your house, that daily walk to the mailbox just isn’t all that fun. Now imagine it in the hot summer weather. And really, who wants to go outside?  Pfft! Air-conditioning, that’s where it’s at!
  • No getting accidental spoilers. I know, I know, you forgot it was release day until you saw that tweet about how shocking it was when SmexyBadBoyHero put the moves on UnsuspectingWallflowerHeroine and now you know WAY too much about the story because you couldn’t stop yourself from clicking.  Have your books delivered directly to your reader and avoid nasty spoilers!

In all seriousness, here are some anticipated summer titles you might be looking forward to. And just in case my obnoxious sarcasm above wasn’t apparent, I’m totally enabling you to pre-order these bad boys.  DOOOO EEEEET!!  *grin*

    Abso-definitely looking forward to many of those. LOL on your list! My issues are budget constraints more than the actually issue of pre-ordering.
