Re: HEADS UP!! The Light Fantastic might be on sale already!

^But that's part of the fun! I love looking at my two large shelves of treklit. I like to put them in order...and then a new order...and then another new order. I love looking at them and remembering past stories. My wife thinks I'm nuts for fiddling with them so much, and hopes that I feel as much love and get just as excited about her as I do with them

I use Goodreads for that.

My copy arrived in the mail yesterday. Though I have a bit of a reading pile to get through before I start reading it.

What's the "official" on-sale release date for the eBook?

Re: HEADS UP!! The Light Fantastic might be on sale already!

I've checked two bookstores which supposedly had it in stock but struck out at both places. Probably have not put them out yet. Oh well, to heck with it. I'l just buy the ebook as usual on Tuesday. At least I know I'll get it.

My copy has yet to ship, but I took the free shipping route, which does usually ship with a little bit of a delay.

The novel arrived in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday. I fly to USA on Tuesday so will be bringing it back again! Like a homing pigeon.

It comes out on the 24th. Us e-book readers have to wait until then.

Re: HEADS UP!! The Light Fantastic might be on sale already!

Interesting. The last two Trek releases have not had the usual "Thursday-before"/"Friday-before" shelf placement at the two B&Ns near me. Indeed, neither of them had the books until the Monday before. I wonder if - after all these years - B&N are tightening up their release days.
