So I don't often buy books new, and if they are, I rarely ever pay full price. However, I couldn't wait to get this one! I LOVE The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns; basically, I just love Khaled Hosseini's writing style and his stories. When I got a gift card to Barnes and Nobles for graduation, I couldn't resist. I went to the store on Monday and saw that this came out Tuesday. So I went back yesterday, dragging my boyfriend along, and bought it! I just want to finish reading the book that I'm on right now so I can start this one!
