How often do you actually start reading a hot new release the day it hits shelves?
Pretty much never.
I don't want to commit to that "never have I ever" aspect because I have this nagging feeling in the back of my brain that I have for at least one or two books. I vaguely remember maybe book 7 of the Harry Potter series, but I still think I waited a week or two.
I grew up a bit on the broke side and buying a book at full hardcover price is, still, to this day, a bit mind blowing.
