I hope I'm not the only book sniffer in the group. The books smell wonderful. *nose stuck in book*

Well you can knock me down with a feather and go get the smelling salts. This has just popped into my email

This is to confirm your Hive order has been dispatched and will be with you very soon. 

This after just two days ago receiving an email that it wouldn't be in their stores until December. 

 

Hope everyone else with outstanding orders with Hive for Tune In has received the same news.

Yes, I got the email today too, which is exciting.  I'll be a little pee'd off if the publishing page says 2nd or 3rd printing, though - I ordered nice and early so that it'd be a 1st edition.

Well that blows.

Might be an idea to contact them if you don't here anything tomorrow, they respond really quickly which is good. ("Contact Us" is located at the bottom of their site under the third column marked "Help").

Yay, you have a reason to celebrate a Happy Thanksgiving with the Beatle Biblers in the US. :-)

I hope your long journeys don't take you through "undiscovered tribes buried deep in the middle of nowhere with the only access via a 36 month journey thru treacherous waters and rival communities who fire poisonous darts at anything that moves."

I think i've already been there with all the pre-decimal figures.

 

And the book does indeed smell yummy.

I've had the confirmation email! Yay!! :D

Since I heard you got it last night, I've been checking every 30 minutes to see if I have and, at 7.00 this morning, I found it in my inbox. Now I just need to wait for the book itself!

Well, I wasn't on here then, and had only just started on my journey of discovery (I listened to them for the first time a few months before), but it still feels a long time since I pressed 'buy'. I've had the book on my mind ever since, and tried very hard to resist looking at spoilers, which has been tough :)

A long personal wait for you and a long collective wait for the group. Finally, satisfaction.

Well, got my deluxe extended today at last. It's gorgeous, beautifully put together and bound. And, yes, it smells nice. :-)

As I feared, the publisher's page already says 'Reprint' and I'm pretty annoyed with Hive about that as I always order early to get 1sts.

Still, at a tidy £19.26 I suppose I ought to get over that!

Oh I'm sorry for that part of my post which was in my own language, I was just excited to see another Dutch fan. It's not like I'll be replying in Dutch in the future.

My copy (which arrived the day before publication) also said "Reprinted 2013". I suspect the extended edition is considered by Little, Brown to be a reprint of the standard version, rather than a brand new title. It seems unlikely that I'd get a copy from a second print run before the book was even published, though not impossible I suppose.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

No mention of reprint on my publication details page, just "First published in Great Britain in 2013 by Little, Brown".

Maybe Amazon got the whole of the first edition print run because they had so many orders, and it was already on its second run before it was even published based on advance orders?
