Happy Casual Vacancy Day!

The release day for one of the most highly anticipated adult books this year is finally here! The Casual Vacancy marks J.K. Rowling's first dip into adult literature.

I can tell you, I wish I had a copy of it in hands right now. I said I wasn't going to, but I broke down and preordered a copy from amazon.com. I had planned on buying today in stores at Barnes and Noble. However, after asking one of the B&N clerks how much the book would be in stores on release day, I changed my mind. With Oshie's residency interviews getting closer, we're really watching our budget right now. I can't fathom paying $35 today for a book I could have for $21 if I wait two days with my amazon prime student shipping. Call me cheap, but when your on a budget, you're on a budget.

But that doesn't mean that I'm not very excited and curious about this book. I'm going to try to avoid spoilers, as to keep myself unbiased until I can read the book for myself. I already saw one when I looked up this photo...I'm sure the news will be riddled with them today.

Personally, I'm wondering if this book will change how I feel about J.K. Rowling as an author and maybe even as a person (I admire her charity). What if I absolutely hate it? Would I avoid reading her future books? I'll just have to wait and see.
