For last week I stopped (with my mom who found the place) at a used book store and got a lot of random books on Saturday. A bag full for $7, unfortunately I had a hard time filling that bag up. All of the good books were what they were selling on line, and I'm to lazy to look in the bag for the titles. So I'm just going share the ones I can remember, and I'm really excited for!
Now my first two preorder titles and the updates. Awakening and Wings, both released on April 6. Awakening had shipping info on April 6, but didn't officially ship until April 7. Official arrival date, April 12, today. (Which was nice because I took a sick day, and between naps devoured it.) Borders was sold out the day of, and will being getting more in next week. (Hopefully.)
Wings, however, had shipping info on April 6, but is a fair away dream. In fact, this is the message:
The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on April 9, 2010 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if / when available. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.
Which just means it has not been shipped. Still beats Borders. When I called my local store about this paperback release, they gave me a faint answer saying maybe in May or June they would have it. However, I could order it in at full price. The discount on this title was nice, very nice on line beating even a 40% at Borders.
So far preorders (provided by Overstock) is winning over Borders, price, convince, and so far delivery.
