dear diary

(no subject) is having a new promotion 4-for-3, where you buy 3 books/CDs/DVDs and get 1 free. But only one item in my wishlist is eligible -- The Ball and the Cross by G.K. Chesterton, and it's not even a high priority. ;) I did a quick search on other Chesterton's books, and found two more that are eligible (The Man Who Was Thursday, and The Man Who Knew Too Much). But not Orthodoxy or Father Brown stories which I'd really want. No, I just found 'Best of Father Brown' which is eligible (I was looking at 'Complete Father Brown'). And I even found 'Paradoxes of Mr. Pond', which I'd read before, and they were excellent. I was surprised to see that Goblet of Fire DVD (or any HP movies at all) wasn't eligible.
