So close I could almost taste it

I give up…

catching-fire-done2Some books simply don’t want to be found and I don’t have the energy to chase them around the globe, not anymore 🙁

I am giving my thanks to Books Express Romania for trying to find this edition of “Catching Fire” for me. They couldn’t help me, but they were really nice and I appreciate the gesture.

I will probably sell (or give away to a friend) my 3 unmatched copies shown below, at this point they are a painful reminder that being a reviewer (sometimes just) means nothing to the publishers.

After all, I wanted to buy the book and pay for the shipping from Australia even (as that’s the only place on Earth presumed to actually have it) and still they just couldn’t find a way for me to get a copy of this book. That they are supposed to sell..

I don’t even find funny the irony of all this.

I know, I really do know that I need to also give up on my passion for art and illustrations, because when it comes to books it doesn’t help me much, it’s in fact the shortest way to disappointment and I am really-really tired of being disappointed.

Have a better day yourself!
