Books!!! Here!!! At my house!!! For REAL!!!

Oh, I'm so glad to see them.

Who ever would have thought that "The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology" and "Obstetrics: Normal and Problem Pregnancies" (and 8 others) would have my heart going pitter-patter?

I was really, really worried for a while. These books were incredibly horribly expensive and were ordered practically the SECOND that a generous check from my mom cleared its way into my account. It became phenominally messy when I collaborated with MIL to use her discount (at which point she stepped in and paid the remaining several hundred dollars for the rest of my books), and things were ordered under her name to her house, so I couldn't even call people up and bitch them out in person.

I'm very much not-happy with Barnes and Noble, but I'm feeling a good deal more magnanimous now that my books are actually in my hands. I was pondering, last week while everyone ELSE was talking about how much reading they were having to do and *I* was just sitting here thinking about how I would have to do TWICE THAT next week, actually buying them on Amazon on credit and working out the details later. That would have been phenominally STUPID, and I'm glad I didn't do it.

And off I go to read.
