I phoned the bookstore on Saturday. They said they had one hard cover set of the Percy Jackson books left. I asked them to hold it for me, promising to drop by on Sunday (yesterday).
Well, they called me back after 30 minutes saying that that the hard cover set was 'damaged' and that 'they couldn't sell it', and recommended that I get the 4-book paperback set (the complete set is 5 books).
Well, I did drop by yesterday and actually bought the paperbacks and was heading to another bookstore to get the final book, when a thought occurred to me, maybe the box was damaged, but the books were fine!
So, I asked to see the 'damaged' set. Well, the box did have a tear at the top but the books were fine! I asked if I could get a discount, they refused but I got it anyway! Who cares about the box?! It's the books I'm after!
I got it for a bargain price as this shop only stocks overprinted books, therefore it's a lot cheaper if you get it here than elsewhere (where they sell at normal retail price)!
Thank God for the tear in the box! Otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten my Percy Jackson set!
