The store opened up at 9am so I left my house by 7:20, got a Tim's tea, and sat in the parking lot and waited for the doors to open. I lined up outside at about 8:30 and was the third person in line behind two women who said they had done the Boxing Day sale every year for 10 years. I recommended books to other people waiting in line and was checking out the website to see what was in store that I needed to pick up. They opened the door at 8:55am and I grabbed a (broken) cart and headed into the store.
Because of the store's layout, I started with the young adult books. I went right for MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH and then UGLIES and AFTERWORLDS because I knew I needed to get those. I then hopped over to get the Fantasy books for Sarah so that I didn't have to worry about someone else grabbing them. Since they were in the next aisle, I had to maneuver my cart through a throng of people but I held my own. Within two minutes, I had 5 books in my cart.

After this, I visited the Manga/Graphic Novel section and grabbed SO MANY FABLES GRAPHIC NOVELS. It was awesome, I'm not going to lie. I wanted to grab some more manga but there weren't a whole lot there that I collect so I just grabbed a FAIRY TAIL and two volumes of LITTLE QUEEN. I then went through the audiobook section and picked up THE BANE CHRONICLES because I think these short stories sound better read aloud than reading them on paper (it's a psychological thing but I'm chill with it) and that was it!
