I'm a complete moron

I managed to order a book from Amazon, despite the fact that I already have a copy in my possession, and I have apparently (from the creased spine) already read it. Can't remember a thing about the story, though.

The book in question is Dune: House Corrino, one of the prequels by Herbert's sprog.

What should I do with it? Vote.

I'm considering declaring it a prize to go to the winner of WFC2, but what kind of guy gives someone a book he bought twice because the story is so forgettable? Or maybe I'm just going senile.

Is the paper soft and absorbent?

At the very least he'll never need another sleeping pill.

You should sell both copies.

I remember when I was a kid, we'd take softcover books and fold each page in the manner of a rocket, then we'd glue the front and back covers together, and drip a lot of wax over the whole thing. Oh the fun we had!

I'm halfway through the dune Butlerian jihad prequel, and I'm hoping the robots win. If they don't, I'm sending the book to robotwars.

It's about the best possible result from reading a Brian Herbert/Kevin Anderson effort...
