I'm not going to read any of the spoiler-laden posts in this forum, because I do not want to know anything before I crack my copy of Seventh Decimate. I am planning to buy the hardcover when it goes on sale, and save it until Christmas morning as a present to myself. I've done this before and really enjoy reading a highly-anticipated book over the holidays. Of course this is the highest of highly-anticipated books because SRD is my favorite writer.

Anwyay, not counting those of you who have preview copies, or friends on the inside who sent you copies in advance of the general sale date, or those who are SRD proofreaders, or those who have time machines and who have already come back from the future...

Who has pre-ordered the book so far?

I have pre-ordered the Kindle version. I'll support SRD the best I can within my budget Smile

I've found I get books sooner if I don't pre-order them. I buy them the day of release (or ASAP) at B&N. When I get it into the car, I crack the pages and smell the new-book-smell.

I'm a schmuck. I pre-ordered it.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

I agree in prinicple but I have had so many bad experiences with the chain bookstore where I live, I have switched to Amazon. There are a few independent bookstores here, but none close to where I live.

As for Kindle vs Hardcover, I will purchase books I am trying out, or ones I am moderately interested in (usually nonfiction) on the Kindle, but for books I am really looking forward to, or new books from my favorite authors, it's hardcover for me. Money well spent.

I've preordered from Amazon. Still waiting for UK publisher to announce the UK cover. I'll probably save until Christmas as well before I start to read it.

Nothing better than a new SRD novel under my Christmas tree!

Devoted SRD fan that I am, Chr-stmas doesn't feel like a time I'd want to open a new book of his. The themes he uses and the vibe he creates seem dissonant with the prevailing spirit of the season. Also, one is expected to at least pretend to be social at that time...and with a new SRD book beckoning, who wants to deal with people?

Love prevails.
~ Tracie Mckinney-Hammon

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Hah! Good points. When I was 13 a friend from school loaned me LFB just before the Christmas break and I read it over the holidays. Thus started an unlikely yuletide tradition for me.

I may pre-order it if the release date in Australia is significantly later than the US or UK (I haven't checked if there are differing release dates, but there usually are).

Alternatively, I'll hound 3 or 4 of the local bookshops every day and get it from whoever delivers first!

Probably slap it onto my kindle, and wait for some wonderful friend to gift me the hardback *wink, wink*

I didn't pre-order because I was counting on being able to walk into my local bookstore and pick up a copy on my way home from work. Was also happy to see that they had it displayed in their window.

The US release date was yesterday. Not sure about international date(s).

My local bookstore had a display of Seventh Decimate as well. That surprised me, in a good way.
