I'm going in!

 

I finished last night.  Was it worth the wait?  It was, no doubt she is a brilliant writer.

Ooh, lucky!  Looks like my copy was shipped yesterday, and I doubt I'll get it today since it's coming from Ohio or something.  Enjoy!

Mine's on the way! Yay!  I'm currently listening to Dragonfly in Amber in my car. Sigh.

Grrr - I'm never pre-ordering from B&N.com again.   My copy isn't scheduled to be delivered until Friday - that's four days after the publishing date.    Grrrr..

Mine isn't estimated to get here til Friday either, Lynn- I'm just hoping that since it was shipped on Monday it will arrive sooner. It is frustrating- how come the Harry Potter books always made it on the publication date, but not this one??

Lesley;  That was my question.  When ever I've preordered before the book came the same day it was out in the stores.  Now I'll have two copies, the good news is someone will get it on the wishlist, as soon as I finish and I'll keep the other for my shelf.

I just  got mine :) I am going to wait though and reread the  others Dragonfly  through Breath since it has been a while since I read them .  Or I might just read it  I am still deciding.

If I remember correctly, there were a few problems with the final Harry Potter book.  At least one online company shipped them way too early and people had them in their hands before the publishing date.   I don't think it was Amazon or B&N.com, but maybe they are all being more cautious because of that?

ETA:  B&N.com is going to get some feedback from me about this though.  What's the point of pre-ordering if you can't get it on or pretty close to the release date?  You might as well go get it in the store.

OMG is sooo right on !!!!   I want to read and read BUT then I'll be done.....Oh, well, then I just re-read the whole series again !!!!!  I'm on page 192/814/

 

Is anyone going to start a discussion once everyone gets theirs?  Lynne?

Katen, I agree. The discussion should be in the Historical Fiction forum, but we can "advertise" it here since so many romance lovers read the series also.

Finally got mine today- woohoo!  But alas, I won't be able to start it just yet, have to read a book I'm using for a swap.  I'm afraid to even open it up yet, for fear that I'll be sucked in and not be able to get out until I finish!
