I just went into Borders on my lunch break to get hold of Kristin Cashore's book, Graceling. I finally found it, in trade paperback form, for $36. $36!!!! Are they kidding? I would *at a pinch* pay that for a large hardback, but never for a trade paperback.
Usually I wait until their email vouchers come out - sometimes they offer %50 discount. Until they do that again, Graceling will have to wait.
