Hairspray book :(#0

Sad news - A friend of mine bought me the Hairspray "behind the scenes book" for Christmas and she said she got it at the Dollar Store... for $1... I'm VERY happy I have the book now, but very sad that it was on sale for only a dollar.

Has anyone else seen this great book for such a low price?

1$???

Why someone would tell you how much they spend on your present is beyond me- epsecially being that it was a dollar.

Are you sure it was only 1$? Have you read it? Are there missing words/pages??

Try scanning it and I'm sure you'll get some comments here.

Got mine for $2.50 at half.com. They have fairly inexpensive Aida books also.

They have more too. Just got it last week.

Alright...seriously- this book cannot be 35$ and be sold for 1$.

Can someone send me a link or a picture or something. My curiousity is majorly peaked.

I guess I should wait till Wicked: The Grimmerie becomes that cheap.

I bought the Aida book in a Dollar Tree for a dollar. There was a whole stack of them. I should have bought more.

Yeah, I got mine at "Deals" out here...my dance teacher told me about it!

I totally would have bought a gagillion of them, and sent them all to whomever wanted one..but they only had two! one which I gave to my friend, and mine which actually has a rip in the top cover thing re: Hairspray book :(

If I ever find myself in that store again (which is doubtful :) ) and they have more, I'll buy like 10 of 'em ....

At Barnes and Noble, over the summer by me they had 3 of them for 5.99 each. And they are very repectable book distributors. It was also onsale at their site too. I guess I got lucky they had some here

I still can't believe the outrageous prices theaters charge for books. Wicked the Novel and Son of a Witch for $30? Please...

Stephanie- Thank you, I bow to you my dear. *Bows*

Now, how can I get it by paying 1-5$?

When did you get it?

Do you know if it still available for that kind of cheap price?

My cousin almost paid the $35 for Son of a Witch. Umm...yeah, no. I mean, it was an ok book...but not for $35. *shakes head*

Though, I did see several people shell out the money for the books when I went to see Wicked.

Not a problem, I hate when I'm ignored after numerous posts :)

Last time I looked, Ebay had it for really cheap, or if you have a random dollar store by you (like Dollar tree, Deals, maybe Dollar general)

or, on Amazon.com (the link I posted) they have "new and used" from .80 cents, so maybe some of those people have ones in great condition...so you'll only really be paying for shipping (I got a Aida book from a used seller originally $40 I got for $8 total and it was in GREAT condition)...

Hope that helps!

Thanks Stephanie- you are a star! re: Hairspray book :(

I tend not to buy things offline because I am anal about that and scared someone will find me or that it won't be in good condiction....yes, you get the point.

There are no dollar stores around here that I know of sadly. But this weekend will begin my search!
Thanks!

haha, AWWW Thanks!

and btw i didn't answer, I got my book in early december, the 7th?? around then, so about a month ago...

If I see any i'll be sure to pick one up and offer it to you:)


But I do suggest going with on on Amazon, I have YET to be disappointed by on the used sellers. If they say it's in new condition, it will be. But I completely understand why you wouldn't want to...
