pre-ordered on my amazon kindle. then I realized that I won't get that fold out map. so i will order both, plus the audio book. I won't listen to the audio book in my car though. it would be worse than talking on a cell phone. I will not be able to focus on anything.

The last time I have checked, it wasn't available on the french amazon but I intend to order the book and the audiobook too. it would be a challenge though for me to read it, hopefully it's supposed to target a young audience, so I guess the language won't be too elaborate.

I'll probably wind up ordering the hard cover, the e-book, and the audio book. I think I'll probably listen to the audio book first, though. I think I'll appreciate it more coming from Chris' voice than reading it on my own.

^ the thing mr. colfer made me do. I can't believe I will be reading a children's novel plus watching a teen flick. I mean, I can be a grandma now if my kids are not careful these days.

Piracy for me girls. I'm hoping and epub/mobi version of it will appear at the most few days after the book is available. But, if by some divine intervention, I can buy a hard cover English copy in a book store I'm doing it. A translation, if there ever will be one, will one happen if the book is a huge hit and interests our publishers. And that probably from 6 months to a year in waiting at least. Had to wait for the last Harry Potter book 3 months if I'm not mistaken, even though I read it a day after it went on sale around the world.

I just pre-ordered The Land of Stories as an e-book, a hardcover, and an audiobook. They had two versions of the audio book listed, and one was just $15.50 (the other was $47).

Please leave the audiobook at home, I don't want to see you hurt in a hospital because you were listening the sweet voice of Chris Colfer reading a children's book :O lol

Are you sure that will be available on internet??? I don't care about piracy because I haven't been able to order the book :(

PS: I also read HP on internet because I wasn't going to wait a year to read it! Is the same situation now.

Honey, you can find most new releases in a matter of hours to days after they come out. I downloaded HP 7 on the night it came out.

I think they are to be sent to book reviewers/critics so they can publish their reviews when the book is released. but consider it's only March, it's VERY advanced release.
