    Why would you shill for this garbage? Aren’t there are enough people shilling for it already? You need to get in and help?

    You must be too.

    “Hey, Nick, how are you?”
    “Great, great. Hey, David, did you know you can buy the entire Hunger Games trilogy for $5?”
    “Uh, no.”
    “Yeah, yeah, $5 bucks! Can you believe it?”
    “Sounds great.”
    “So are you guys going to do it?”
    “Do what?”
    “Buy the Hunger Games trilogy? For only $5?”
    “I don’t know. Maybe. First I was thinking about getting a beer.”
    “Fuck beer! I’m talking about the Hunger Games trilogy, man! For only $5!”
    “I’ll check that out when I get home.”
    “But why? You can check it out now.”
    “I don’t know.”
    “What, you don’t like the Hunger Games?”
    “I’ve never read it.”
    “You’ve never read the Hunger Games? Are you too good for the Hunger Games?”
    “No.”
    “You think it’s only for tweeners?”
    “Well.”
    “It’s not. It’s for everyone.”
    “Okay.”
    “Don’t be snob.”
    “I’m not.”
    “Yes you are.”
    “I’m really not trying to be a snob. I swear.”
    “Then buy the Hunger Games trilogy for only $5.”
    “I will.”
    “Now.”
    “Now?”
    “Do it right now. Elitist.”
    “But I already have a lot of books at home that I haven’t read. My nightstand is about to collapse.”
    “This is for the Kindle, man.”
    “I don’t have a Kindle.”
    “You don’t?”
    “No.”
    “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
    “I just, I don’t know, I haven’t had the extra cash.”
    “You go to Starbucks every morning, right?”
    “Well, yes.”
    “How much you spend?”
    “$5.”
    “If you stopped going to Starbucks for a month you could not only afford a Kindle, but probably the Hunger Games trilogy, too.”
    “But I like my coffee, Nick.”
    “Fuck your coffee!”
