got a copy... [In reply to] Can't Post

actually, two. I told myself not to buy two but the old LOTR uber collector in me did.

I just glanced through the pages over lunch and ... WOW. I mean, seriously WOW. This is comprehensive, well laid out, the headlines are grabbers (haven't dipped into the articles yet). The images are fantastic. This was one seriously good collaboration. "Well done" to everyone who was involved (and I can only take teeny tiny credit for scouting down an image being sought).

I decided to drive out to a third tier suburb south of town. It had two things going for it. One: land out there is a little cheaper and stores can be larger. Two: there were a number of potential places for me to look: B&N, Target, Walmart, and Cub Food (large grocery store chain).

I found it at the B&N. I checked Target first since I have a Target debit card which gets me 5% off. But they didn't have it (they did have Twilight magazine, though... just saying)

My advice for people looking: don't call.. unless you are so far away you really can't justify the trip without calling first. I don't think some people really look (I'm not even sure they 'check their computers' when they say they are since I was told by one person they don't have magazines entered in the same way into their computers. I think they just decided 'not worth looking' and give the customer a line). Also, the copies I found were not easily spotted. The section is crowded and there were magazines behind magazines. They won't care as much as you do and may not look at carefully as you would.

If you have to call, MAKE them go to the rack and physically look. Plead, beg, bribe... whatever. Just make them go look. And then make them look behind every other magazines. Make them dig.

And if you're looking, man... dig. Look behind everything. Once I was standing in front of the entertainment section of the rack, it took me a couple of minutes to find it.

This is so cool. :-D
