Insurgent Countdown and Giveaway: 1 Day Left

 
   Welcome, everyone! It's Day 1 of The Book Basement's Insurgent Countdown! Technically, since I didn't post yesterday, it's not really "1 Day Left." There are LESS THAN 24 HOURS UNTIL THE RELEASE OF INSURGENT. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? I CAN'T. OH MY GOODNESS, MY CHEST IS GOING TO EXPLODE.

   Okay, sorry, folks, for the abuse of caps lock and bold. But I can't even contain myself. It's so close!

   My plan for today is to go to my Barnes & Noble and BEG--I mean seriously, BEG!!!!--for a copy of Insurgent. Sadly, I don't think that even a teenage girl begging will make the workers ignore the extremely strict sale date of Insurgent. (Mariam from Mindful Mundanes and Anna from Literary Exploration both work at book stores and have said that Insurgent has an EXTREMELY STRICT SALE DATE. This makes for a very unhappy Sophia.)

   So if that plan fails, I'll just have to wait to get on Tuesday. Sigh. I'll take tons of pictures probably. I'm crossing my fingers that my Barnes will have a grand big display for such an amazing book. Yeah. Okay.

   I know what you're thinking: Wait. Didn't you preorder it? Yeah, I did. But it's not coming until four days after the release day or something. WHICH SUCKS. Ugh. I don't like shipping.

   Short post today, I know. I can barely type with my excitement. What are your plans to get Insurgent? Leave your answer in the comments/tweet about the post! And fill out this form!

  4. I won't be buying it tomorrow. I'm a bit broke at the moment, so I'll wait for a while *jealous of everyone else*

  7. Aw, good luck with it! I hope you get it, Sophia. :D I don't really have any plans for it, I'm going to try to pick it up from the bookstore when it comes out.

  9. I pre-ordered and was patting myself on the back about how awesome I was and how I helped release four and his short story. But then I checked my shipping date of my pre-order and I won't get it till 4 DAYS after the release date. There is no way I could live with this. Heck I was counting on an early ship date as last year I received Divergent a WEEK early. So while I do prefer my books in print, I also own an Ipad. And as last year I did end of up buying Divergent on THREE different platforms (hardcover, ebook, and audioook) I could only fathom I would do the same for Insurgent. So I also pre-ordered for my IPad which means it downloads tonight at 12:01. It will be like my own personally midnight release party for Insurgent. I am VERY excited!

    Tis is all to say that if you have an e-reader you should download at midnight!

  10. Unfortunately, I don't have a job right now, so all my saved money is being carefully guarded. SO....I have to settle for getting it from the library. But I WILL read it as soon as possible!! And then buy it as SOON as I get a job! haha

  12. I'm lucky enough to have already read it but I am still super excited for it to finally be out in the world! There is so much to talk about and I imagine everyone will be reading this at roughly the same time. There'll be a lot of Insurgent talk in the next few days! :D

  14. I've pre ordered this for the Kindle, and although it's actually the 1st of May in Australia right now, I'm counting down the hours so that I'll be able to download it the moment it's released! Good luck with securing a copy!

  15. Oh my gosh, yes! Shipping is so inconvenient sometimes! My copy won't be coming until May 5th. Darn Amazon. -___-

  16. I've preordered mine as well. I'm kind of irritated at myself though, because I got it through The Book Depository so it'll take FOREVER to get here. GAH!!! Luckily, it shipped today, but it'll still be at least two weeks before it gets here.

    *sob*

    New follower! I love your blog.

  18. I plan to run over to B&N as soon as I leave work!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well at least you'll have it soon. I didn't per-order a copy so I'll have to wait till Wednesday before I have some time to run over to B&N to grab a copy. Or maybe I could just get iron my Nook tomorrow. Hopefully it will be available to all ereaders on the release date! :) Can't wait to read your review for Insurgent!

  20. Well,

    I've read Divergent, but don't own a copy! So my plan, is to save up a bit, and then go and buy both Divergent and Insurgent together, and read from the very beginning to the very end. I don't think that will be for a while - perhaps end of May? I know...sad, right?!?!? *le sigh*

    I hope your begging works, and that they give in to your charms, and let you have a copy. I mean, come on, sometimes you gotta break the rules, right!?!? ;) I hope that exception takes place in YOUR case! :D

    P.S... THANK YOU for your immense generosity, and for this giveaway! :D

  22. I haven't read Divergent yet but I plan to. I just have to find time.
    I wished begging for a book would help, hey maybe it will and you'll get Insurgent, You never know:)

  23. I JUST got a copy of Divergent, so I'm really looking forward to reading it and seeing what the buzz is all about. I'm hoping it lives up to all my expectations, though summary and cover alone, it sounds amazing. And I'm glad I'm just reading it since Insurgent is right around the corner and I won't have to wait as long as to read that at all (though I guess the wait for book three will be quite painful if I get as addicted as I think I will). Thanks for the giveaway!
