For those who don't know...if you prefer to check out Bitterblue versus buying it, then I'd suggest you see if your library system has any on order and then request it. That ensures you will have it May 1 and not experience that horrible feeling of seeing 'CHECKED OUT.'
If you never have gone to your library system's website, talk to your local librarian and I'm sure they will show you how to request materials.
I plan on requesting The Rise of Nine in advance, too. :)

One of the best ways I keep up on up coming books is Amazon! I purches a lot of books through them and their recommendations are amazing. They list several books that are either soon to be released (usually posted as soon as the publisher releases the date) and just general recommondations based on what you've previously purchased. So I check that website then click over to my libraries website to request them! That way I'm always up to date

Our township has a pretty extensive selection. I have a Kindle now but would go broke if I bought every book I wanted to read! I place so many requests through our library that they gave me my own request pad to keep filling out whenever I see a book to request. So I read about 50/50 Kindle and paper books. But I think the library is a fantastic resource that I don't think enough people take advantage of.

Lol, I wish my library would give me a request pad!
A couple of my coworkers have Kindle Fire and so far, they seem pleased with it. Me, I'm an old-fashioned girl with physical books. :)

I know-- I feel like I am cheating on my physical books with my Kindle!
