Still waiting for Lessons from the Fat-o-sphere

The book came out a week ago, as most people in the fatosphere knows (especially readers of Kate Harding and The Rotund). Well, I’ve been wanting to buy it from Chapters/Indigo, since there’s both a Chapters and an Indigo bookstore close to work. Only problem: the only store in the chain to have received the book so far in the Montreal area is the Pointe-Claire store, which is located deep in the suburbs. Of course, I could take a nice, long bus ride out to Pointe-Claire for the book, but I’d much rather buy it downtown. Why Chapters/Indigo specifically? Well, for starters there aren’t many English-language bookstores in Montreal. And more importantly: I have an iRewards card, which means an automatic discount on my purchase.

In any case, I called the Indigo store last Friday and I was told that 2 copies are being ordered and that they should be in any day. Result: I end up checking the Chapters website several times a day to see if the book is in…

    You can order it online from Chapters. That’s how I got mine. They shipped it Friday and it was in my mailbox yesterday. I live in a small town in Ontario and the closest Chapters didnt have it either. The next closest is Kingston and that is 80 miles away.

    I don’t even have a Chapters, just a Coles so I’ll have to order mine online. 😦 Good luck getting you book!

    @Libbyblue: Yeah, I found that out last night. They didn’t have it on the floor yet (and it was right before closing time), but I’ll go back today — they probably haven’t put the copies out of the box yet.

    Really looking forward to reading it. 😀
