I had seen the cover before, and it had always intrigued me. One day, I was at Goodwill, bargain-hunting (yay for 20 cent book day!!!), and I saw a black book with hands holding an apple. I was so excited to find it, because it was on my long list of books to read. I snagged it right away! It was only when I got home that I realized it was an advanced reading copy "not for resale". It even still had typo's in it! It's one of my most cherished books. Now I own all 3 in hardcover as well.
So, I'd like to hear how you all found out about the books!
