    I received a phone call from by local Borders that my copy has arrived and can be picked up.

    My Barnes and Noble will probably be getting it later this week, so I'll be picking that up.

    Well, I work in New York, which seems to get new Trek books about a week or two after everyone else :angryrazz:, so maybe I'll be able to get the book in time for my birthday in three weeks... :p

    Really? I would think you guys would get it first, since that's to be where Pocket's headquarters are. Or are they actually printed somewhere else?

    As far as I know, they are NOT printed in NY. I think somewhere in between is where it's printed and bound.

    I'm just going off of prior postings hereabouts, where it seems like people all over the country have got [insert name of Star Trek book here] before it starts showing up in NYC-area bookstores. Of course, this may just be my frustration talking...

    Amazon.com lists the release date as 9/29, but my local B&N tends to get copies 3-4 days before any Amazon release date.

    Indeed. I swear to whatever deity will listen, we need another postal service in this country, something to rival or beat Royal Mail (which really isn't all that hard since they're so useless). But I will be notified of its dispatch and can then pester my grandmother to see if it has come.

    Amazon is listing it as being in stock starting from the 27th and BN.com says ships in 2-3days but interestingly enough, bn.com gets the books before the stores get it. In fact, Borders told me they have it sitting in storage and won't put it out till next week. Go figure.

    And Borders wonder why they're going out of business...

    By looking at their shelves I'm surprised they stock any Trek books. Every time I go to our Borders there are fewer, last time there were about 2½ shelves devoted to Trek.

    Yeah, same here. When I went a monthish ago they had actually cut back from what they had before the movie even came out. It was down to like 1 or 1 1/2 shelves on the very bottom rows.

    Barnes and Nobles is dedicated to more Sci Fi then Borders is if you compare the shelf space for each including Graphic Novels.

    Judging by locations of a Borders, it seems the further out you go, the less you'll find of what you are looking for while the opposite is true of a B and N store..

    Over the past couple of years, I have had much more success in tracking down and obtaining books by ordering them online. I begin to wonder how long it may be before the ubiquitous stores are phased out altogether.

    Sadly that isn't true of the one near me. It's always been pretty much the same as Borders.
