Okay, so I've recently just tried buying these books from Amazon. And yeah, it was sort of a fail, hence the post title.
It was the very first time I had tried ordering from Amazon. And not just Amazon itself- but the marketplace too. They look okay, right? But one of them? Eh, not so much...
I've been dying for both of these books, so I couldn't resist! I got The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer from the marketplace for a pretty good price, so I'm pretty happy about that. And I'm really excited to read Masque of the Red Death too- I mean, look at that creepy cover! :D
Aaand this is where things went bad. You see, I love Holly Black, so I just had to buy her books. I got Red Glove from the marketplace, and it's in perfect condition. But White Cat?
The good side: Got it for a dollar.
The bad side: The book was totally dead.
I was sooo freaking pissed! I think the seller even claimed it was in good condition or something, so that's why I chose it! But noo, there's writing all over the edges, and the cover's bent. Up until then, I didn't even know it was possible to destroy a hardbound book! But yeah, after this experience, I've certainly grown wary of Amazon Marketplace. :/
So yeah, that's my haul for the week, and my epic fail in online shopping. What about you? Any new books? Any epic fails when shopping online? And who knows, ten years from now, we'll all look back at this experience and laugh at it. Hopefully. :P
