Congrats! I can't wait to go and pick up my own copy of The DUFF sometime soon. For now, I'll have to make do with my to-be received ARC. :S

Glad you had a great day! Celebrate your victory and awesomeness! We're the same age, so I'm still astounded how far you've come at such a young age. At least I never thought of becoming a writer, or else I'd be extra jealous of you.

I went out on my lunch break yesterday and picked up a copy from Border's. I finished it in about 4 hours. I really, really enjoyed it! Congrats on a well written, interesting, funny and thought provoking novel!

Congrats! It's not on the bookshelves here, and I'm still waiting for my pre-order to be sent.

Can't wait to read it when it finally arrives! (but at least I'll get to read MOCKINGJAY first. That was sent out last week, even though it was in the same order).

CONGRATULATIONS!

I wish I could go out and buy it right now, but I'm pretty sure my boss would frown on that.

Also, stupid book buying ban. :( As soon as my TBR pile is finished and the ban is lifted I'm buying The Duff. It's going to be the first post-ban book I buy. :D

When we buy something, we are always [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora necklaces[/URL][/B] thinking that it had better never become devaluated. The one piece that never loses [U][B]tiffany rings[/U][/B] its value is always what people want most. Sometimes, the one [B]pandora bracelet[/B] piece would raise its price [U][B]tiffany earrings[/U][/B] with the rise of money. Here is recommended the pieces that [B]pandora jewellery[/B] would always be treasured - Tiffany. The watches, bags, bracelets, necklaces. There will always be a classical piece in all the categories [U]pandora beads[/U] of Tiffany.

First comes to the tank watches which [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany pendants[/URL][/B] are the favorite of a lot of people around the world. Of course, just like other [B]tiffany jewelry[/B] kinds of watches, Tiffany watches have both man and woman [U][B]pandora bracelets[/U][/B] style. No matter what kind of style [U]tiffany charms[/U] or color it is, the tank watch always has its classical features. The tank watch is called one [U][B]pandora beads[/U][/B] of the very important objects in the world.

The watches have the [B]pandora jewelry[/B] unique shape and "favored by all" watch bands. The mixture shape of geometry [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] and art gives the tank watch its lasting value. Women with the [U]tiffany necklaces[/U] watches look more professional and modern [U]tiffany[/U] while men with the watch seem more [U]pandora bracelets[/U] approachable.


Besides the Tiffany bracelets and bags, something [U]pandora jewelry[/U] else from Tiffany is also among the piece to be treasured, from rings to bracelets, from necklaces to [B]tiffany jewelry[/B] brooches. Some of them might be relatively cheap while some [U][B]pandora beads[/U][/B] of them might be expensive. However, all of them are worth treasuring since [U][B]tiffany pendants[/U][/B] they would never devaluate as a classical [B]pandora bangles[/B] piece.
