I don’t like to pre-order because sometimes it is faster to get it from the store. My experience was that the pre-order was filled on release date so you wait for shipping while it sits on the shelf in your favorite store. But in this case it was never sent to the store, I ordered it from the store on the 29th and although it said it ships in 24 hours, it never shipped. I cancelled that order 10/4. Reordered it from another online book seller and was just confirmed today (10/6) it was shipped. No big deal except, EL is my favorite writer and Carl Webster is my favorite of his characters.
Anyway, for DJIBOUTI I’m just going to pre-order it from my “small box” book retailer where I should patronize anyway.
