Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

Apparently bookstores are only putting a limit on their copies cuz when I went up on wednesday to one of my local b&n, they had only 3 on order and I put my name on there to call me and well the next day they did. I didn't check to see if there was any on the shelve through. Just wanted the book already since I have been waiting for this the most besides the past 2 books of both TNG and ENT. Looks great through. Did a sneak peek.

A slight aside: Is it just me, or this thread the longest one I've ever seen in the Trek Lit forum? Fifty-four pages and counting!

You have your view set to 20 per page. We are at 27 pages on my screen. I do think it is a long thread though. They used to have to close threads at 1000, that does not apply anmore.

I must not have very many posts per page because I've got 54 pages.

Yup, 54 pages.

And still no Destiny for me. Went to 3 completely different bookstores today. B&N says they'll have it on Tuesday

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

I went over to my grandmother today and picked up Gods of Night which was delivered to her earlier this week. Unfortunately, I have three books to read before I get there considering the place I've given it in my reading list. So I'll get to it in about say two and a half weeks.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

I'm going to make yet another attempt to find this book today. If no one has it in stock, people may die.

Re: Destiny trilogy - speculations

Didn't locate a copy until today. They're always out a week before the new month, but not this time it seems. Still need to finish KB, but since I'm taking a flight in a few weeks, I'll probably put another book in between so I can read all three Destiny books in a row.

A Borders near me still did not have it as of today. That's pretty bad.

They did however have Lost Souls.

All part and parcel of Borders' own economic implosion. Basically, they have neither the cash nor the available credit to order new inventory, and are falling behind on many new titles.

Yes, just what I was hoping for — an economic crisis and a distribution fiasco just in time for the release of my trilogy.
