Anyone had a good experience purchasing a pre-release book from Amazon?
So the last book of my favorite series is coming out in January. I pre-ordered the previous book from Amazon to get the best price and selected the free standard shipping. I was very disappointed that my book not only didn't ship on the release date, but didn't ship for almost a week past the release date. It then took another 3 days to actually get to me. (I actually ended up purchasing it at a local Walmart for about the same price the day after it came out because I couldn't wait any longer.)
I am tempted to pre-order this last book but do not want to repeat the previous experience. Anyone else have a similar experience with Amazon?
