I had 2 WL books posted to me today & there was something odd about both. The first book that was posted to me doesn't come out until next month & the second book that was posted to me is on the person who posted it to me WL. Weird day for me I guess...

I've had quite a few of WL books that were posted to me before the realease date.  They always seem to come from the same 2 people and they belong to a book club of some sort and they get the books early.  I'd just shot the person a pm and ask if it's an ARC or not.

I wish I had a book posted to me that did not even come out for a month.

Jen....

You know it seemed to happen all at the same time by the same two people then it just stopped.....  I wish I was still getting them!  But you almost have to be #1 (or at least single digits) on the WL for that to happen and I'm just not hawking the books like I use too.  Too much to read already sitting on the shelves at home!

I did message them but haven't gotten a responce yet. As for the other, they had put it on their WL 2-3 days before I put it on mine (1-5-09).

I know I found the latest Lara Adrian at Kmart a month before it was supposed to come out.  I almost didn't buy it cuz it was too soon.  I think some of the stores get them in and than just put them out figuring it's just extra money.

i've found books early at my bookstore too.  it's worth asking if it's an ARC, but hopefully it's just a copy put out early.

as for the other, i've had that happen too.  she posted to me a book that was still on her WL.  i even pointed it out, but it was still on her WL after i got the book in the mail.  no clue what that was about.  the person probably just got impatient, bought it, and forgot to remove it.
