About two months ago, I was ordering some books from Amazon. It was about the same time that Dougy Coupland’s The Gum Thief was released. I was about to order it when I realized that there was a special edition box set coming out. The special edition box set was about $8 more expensive. The only downside? Not released until Nov 29th. I thought what the hell… I can wait. So I bought it and have been waiting (im)patiently ever since.

Just the other day I checked my order status. Here’s what I saw:


Looks fine right? Well it is, I wasn’t surprised until I clicked on the The Gum Thief Boxed Set to check out the item. $44.55!!!!!!! Its gone up in price by $17. They just better honour my original price. I actually feel like I’m getting a good deal.
