I love reading books by Nora Roberts. I just finished reading Blue Dalhia by her. Now I'm trying to find the second part to it that is called Black Rose. I keep bidding on it on ebay and everyone I get outbid on. I just bid on another one that ends soon so hopefully I'll win that one. I went to the library yesterday to find it and they didn't have it. So I checked at two different stores (Target and Walmart) and they didn't have it. I don't want to spend a whole lot of money like at the bookstore for it because I'll only read it one time and then pass it on to a friend. It's just driving me crazy cause I can't get it and I am ready to start reading it NOW since I finished the first part. So anyway, have you ever wanted a book so bad but couldn't find it? I would buy it from the bookstore but I just really can't see spending that much money for it and then giving it away as soon as I'm done reading it. If I kept all the books I read then I wouldn't mind it.

have you thought about having hte library check to see if any other libraries in your County might have it? If they do you can have them get it for you

Usually libraries 1. have different 'offices' in the same county 2. have agreements with other counties to they can get it for you. (not that it matters for this book) I cannot remember of any book (they don't do swaps county-to-county where I live for CDs/Games/etc...) that I couldn't get... even new ones. Again glad you got the book.

I didn't even think to see if they could do that. I won it off ebay though so I got it.

Black Rose - Nora Roberts - 2nd in a trilogy of books by Nora Roberts. The series goes as follows (Blue Dahlia, Black Rose, Red Lily).
Buy it used at Amazon.com... I just checked there and there are sellers selling it for 1ยข! http://www.amazon.com/Black-Rose-Garden-Trilogy/dp/0515138657 Of course if you literally want it now pay full price and pay for one day shipping and you will have it tomorrow or from the bookstore. Another great place to look is eBay but use the BUY IT NOW ($3.95 is what I found quickly looking there). Target and Walmart are not going to be the places to look for books (although both carry a few). You will want to find your local Barnes & Noble, Waldens Books, Books-a-Million, etc... that will have the book for you. If you join their 'club' then you will get an additional 10% off the price of the book and if it is new and a bestseller a lot of times it is already 40% off. Good luck hunting out there.!
