Funny thing Dayton is that I went into the bookshop at Penn Station to get a newspaper and near the new release shelf was the ENTERPRISE book. Of course, I bought it and now have something to read while I'm out of town for the weekend..

Have you checked the mail room, maybe you have a fan who wants it first.

Re: Kobayashi Maru

Ugh once again I preordered on Amazon and it still says it will ship Sept 2nd. Is there even a point to preordering?

Amazon UK are saying 6 to 9 day delivery - but that's what they said for FS and it then got bumped back to the end of August on my order.

Well, preordering doesn't mean you get the book before Amazon gets it, because clearly that's impossible. The point is to reserve a copy so that you get prompt service once it does become available -- and, if it's in heavy demand, to make sure you get one before it sells out. Although if an item attracts enough preorders, the dealer will know they have to order more to avoid sellouts.

Besides, it's just a matter of convenience. If you know now that you'll want to get the book once it's available, why not go ahead and take care of buying it now so it'll be taken care of, rather than waiting until later? Heck, if it were me, I'd be liable to get distracted and let the release date slip my mind.

Re: Kobayashi Maru

I think it's more a problem of, lately, the book being avaliable more readily in shops before Amazon are even dispatching it. Amazon, at least Amazon UK, used to be really good with releasing books before they were avaliable readily in shops, but that has gone to pot now.
