Just to let you folks know, I picked up my copy of The Eternal Tide today at B&N. They were stocking shelves and 4 copies of the book were just sitting on the information desk waiting to be shelved. I must admit that I'm anxious to read it - and the Beyer Voyager relaunch - but I have to get through the Pre-Destiny stuff! I've been picking up the books because I've found the newer Trek books are disappearing from my local bookstores faster than some of the ones from 3-4 years ago.
I will put a call into my local Barnes and Noble as soon as they open up to see if they have any copies sitting around. I cannot wait to sit down and begin reading this novel.
