Got back into reading almost 2 years ago, almost immediately fell in with you all. Anyway, this time around, I've put several hardcovers on my watch list, waiting for paperbacks to come out with lower prices, and it never seems to happen. For instance, I put King Killer Chronicles book 2 on this type of a watch based on the more mixed reviews for book 2. I kind of assumed it would be a couple of months, but it seems that is most definitely not true, at least not with the initially popular books that I'm putting on my watch list. I'm patient enough, but if I had realized it would be *this* long I might have just bitten the bullet.
