So many good books coming out!
I have to say though, for some reason the new Black Library pre-order thing with books is really annoying to me. Wonder why they started doing that.
The thing that really annoys me about it is that if you pre-order a book, you’ve still got to wait as long for it to be delivered as if you ordered it on day of release. I’m sure they could dispatch it so that it arrived then like many other companies do.
I mean, I still do pre-order things, but resentfully...
I feel you. I preorder a lot of books almost 9 months in advance via Amazon, and often they somehow fail to stock them at Amazon Germany, resulting in 3 week delays past the release date for me. I STILL haven't gotten my Ciaphas Cain Omnibus 3, either. It was supposed to be delivered a month ago, then went basically into availability limbo.
This is the downside of Amazon.de for me as well. I've noticed that they will say that a book is available on a certain date ( take for instance the upcoming Fire and Blood by George RR Martin) , and then when that date comes, they don't have stock, they never seem to order in. Whereas Amazon.com actually does ship on day of release. Of course, for us Europeans that is not what we want as they have much higher shipping costs and longer transit time.
