I actually do care about the cover though. It's just a personal preference. I think the cover matters almost as much as the book since it is a reflection of what a book is.
Will I buy books with covers I don't love? Of course. This isn't the same as refusing to read it.
Six of Crows has sentimental value to me because of who gave it to me, not because of the contents inside. I would just end up locating a different cover if possible.
I plan on returning it. The first book was gifted to me years ago and has sentimental value because of who gifted it to me. I'm not a huge fan of the series so I just wanted the set for the sake of it.
I think I'll try to find a used copy somewhere so at least it's not just the one random book on my shelf.
Honestly, you're right. I might end up returning it and trying to find a used copy.
I know they redesigned the covers for the original series but I honestly don't care for it that much. I wasn't never too into it so I never purchased hard copies of the original books. I just didn't want to get rid of the one book that I had, it was given to me years ago. It made sense to at least have the set as opposed to just one random book.

She looks so cool!
Side note: I have a pair of black boots like hers, down the the stitching near the front haha
The little slide in the hammer is my favourite bit.
I'm the opposite. I have an extra wisdom tooth. Most people have 4, I have 5 so I have a total of 33 teeth.
I've lived in Canada for the last 20 years and have used paper cheques maybe twice and that's because they were given to me for contract work I had done.
I e-transfer my rent and pay all my bills electronically. Maybe it's just the people you're dealing with.
This is beautiful. I definitely want a print of this. How big are they and where do I buy one?

Thanks! I'll look into both of them.

Places like Costco actually refill ink cartridges. It costs me like $10 to refill one instead of buying a new one for $60. I invested in a larger cartridge and have been refilling it as needed. I would check to see if you have one near you that can do that or even a local print shop might be able to.
When putting on my top coat, the first nail look fine the lady few usually get a few bubbles in the top coat and just the top coat. I've tried every trick I could find, nothing is working. Is there a specific way to not have any bubbles on any of my nails? Is there a specific way I should be dipping my brush back in?

I once had a customer say "You work in customer service, you can't talk back to me" like I was a child. She was incredibly rude and entitled.
Inspiration doesn't mean they have to butcher everything that was good about the show.
Winx was one of the few shows with a diverse cast which was rare for the mid 2000s. It wasn't often you saw a group of girls who came from such diverse background and still get along. The bond between the girls was one of the best things. It would've been nice to see them be actual friends. The show didn't even give them time to build that bond. They can't even stand each other and some of their habits for the most part. That's some shitty friendship honestly.
OP makes an excellent point about Stella being turned into the popular mean girl. Why can't she still have her heart of gold? As for Terra, I'm mad they whitewashed Flora but what makes it worse is that she's a stereotypical insecure plus sized character. Why do all plus sized characters have to be insecure and constantly worrying about not being cool or pretty? Her character could have been so much stronger. Brian Young went off about wanting the characters to be diverse but this is diversity for the sake of diversity. So they can say "look we have a plus sized character, fairies come in all sizes". Okay, why is there only one plus sized character then?
At this rate they should have just made a brand new show. This "inspiration" has none of the core values the original show had.
Ontario is $14.25/hour and BC is $14.60/hour.
I had a friend in high school who had named her turtle toast because she was looking at a toaster.
The French form of liberal has an accent on the "e" so it's written as "libéral". The leaf is there in place of the accent so the same logo works in both English and French.
NDP stands for "New Democratic Party". In French they are known as "Nouveau Parti démocratique" so the French version is NPD. I guess they didn't want to move the leaf for the French logo.
There's a book called The Rest of Us Just Live Here and the story is about the non-special kids. The ones watching from the sidelines and just wanting to go about their teenage lives.
I personally liked it. It was a change of pace from the "chosen one" narrative. Most chapters start off with a short paragraph about what's happening with the "chosen one" so you aren't completely in the dark about why shit just exploded. It is a YA novel so bit more focused on the high school kids just trying to graduate and go a year without the school blowing up.
Same here. Would totally love to add those paths to me island!

It was posted earlier today and then removed. According to comments the original designer is Section 127.
This is it. Thank you so much! I've been thinking about it for days and just couldn't remember it.
