FYI, it's released; Borders had a copy, I bought it, and I had a 25% off coupon too :)

I just got it from here yesterday.  The book is huge...I have no idea how someone could read it and post it already!

OK, I'm impressed; I thought I read fast! So far, I like it much better than Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance.

It actually came out last month.  I got it from Half.Com on March 9th.

I've noticed that Borders takes forever to get new releases in.  The one in my neighborhood still doesn't have the 3rd book in the Demonica series and only has 1 Go Fetch coming to their store!

I just picked up Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance at the used bookstore today. Is it not very good?

I didn't care for the Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance.   From what I read, several of the stories didn't strike me as romances and some of them felt more like the first chapter of the author's next novel, intead of a story in it's own right.  I read about half the stories before giving up.

Have you started reading it? Is it any good?

I just got a Border's coupon emailed to me, so I'm thinking I might pick it up... with a few other goods to boot :)

I thought Vamp Romance was only OK. Maybe, I think I had high expectations for it, so that might have been part of it. Some stories were good, I thought, but some I just skimmed through, and I wouldn't have called it a romance either.  Overall, I grade it about  a "C".  I've read several of the Paranormal Romance stories, and so far so good:)

No unfortunately Sobia I haven't started it yet.  It's sitting on my ever growing TBR pile.

Mammoth Book of Vamp Romance was a lot of short stories, some of them very short.  In the middle of the book, I took a break of several weeks and came back to it later.  Most of the stories were very "pg"...kiss and fade to black stuff.  Bunches of stories by authors I was unfamiliar with (english?) and a bunch by familiar authors (several favorites).   Some good reading, but didn't leave me excited for the next Mammoth book...glad to hear the new release may be better.
