First time online shopper

I bought something online today for the first time!!! It was so exciting!
I bought 5 books at It was so much faster than going to the store. Anytime I step into a Chapters store... I spend on average 1.5 hours wandering and buying everything I touch. I bought all 5 christmas presents in less than one hour! And I know for sure the books are going to be good because I made sure all had 5-star reviews.
  • The Gargoyle: A coke-addled pornographer, drives his car off a mountain road in a part of the country that's never specified. During his painful recovery from horrific burns suffered in the crash, the narrator plots to end his life after his release from the hospital. When a schizophrenic fellow patient, Marianne Engel, begins to visit him and describe her memories of their love affair in medieval Germany, the narrator is at first skeptical, but grows less so. Eventually, he abandons his elaborate suicide plan and envisions a life with Engel, a sculptress specializing in gargoyles.
  • L.A Candy: Basically, Lauren Conrad's autobiography. I was skeptical at first of the book but the reviews have been great.
  • The Thirteenth Tale: Margaret Lea, amateur biographer, is summoned by Vida Winter, a secretive author of stories, to write her last autobiography. Margaret knows nothing about this woman, does some research and discovers that Vida has only written 12 books of a 13 book series.
  • The Hunger Games: I bought this book for my 12 year old cousin. The storyline seems better suited for adults. In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV. One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor tohis or her district.
