Man that title's a mouthful.

I may be a little late starting this, but I still plan to read this next week. Anyone else?

Sky | 1291 comments I am joining. Though you'll probably finish the whole book before I complete the first section :)

Kat | 1177 comments I'm planning to join this too, but my book hasn't arrived yet. Not sure why orders from the US always take weeks to arrive, if people in Japan can post me things within 5 days.

In my imagination, USPS has a huge pile of parcels in a warehouse somewhere, and each day they hold a lottery to choose 50 parcels to send to Europe. The rest goes back on the pile.

(It was marked "shipped" on June 1st....)

Yeah, I got a game from Germany through Amazon in like 3 days.

USPS is overworked and underfunded though, so maybe that's why. And they've taken on more package delivery recently, including Sunday package delivery (they don't deliver mail on Sundays), and agreements with both FedEx and UPS to deliver packages they drop off at the local post office.

Or maybe it's just spite..

Kat | 1177 comments I just checked my shelves, I'm 99% sure I did not overlook it.

Probably my own fault, because I could have ordered it new from German Amazon with Morning Express. I was stingy and bought a used copy from a third party seller in the US for a third of the price.


Jaime | 97 comments I was able to get a copy from my library, so I am ready to read this next week.

I'm starting tomorrow night most likely. I posted up the sections today. I just used the author's 3 sections.

message 10: by Sky (new) - rated it 4 stars

Sky | 1291 comments I'll start plodding through tomorrow too.


Suzanne | 1582 comments I read it about a year ago and I'm planning on discussing at least as much as I remember :)

Kat | 1177 comments Seriously, I ordered this book 6 weeks ago.

I caved in and also bought the Kindle version today, which irks me because what do I need two copies for? Also, if I wanted it in Kindle, I could have bought that 6 weeks ago.

Anywhoo. Need to charge the Kindle tonight, but will start this tomorrow.

Sky | 1291 comments I started reading last night - its great so far!


message 14: by Kat (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kat | 1177 comments I contacted the people where I ordered the book 6 weeks ago, and they apologised and gave me a refund since they didn't have another copy to send me.

So it's Kindle for me. Just started reading now. FINALLY!

I'm glad you were able to get a refund!


message 16: by Kat (new) - rated it 4 stars

Kat | 1177 comments It was just a few dollars for a used copy, I wouldn't have been terribly out of pocket :)
