I don't know where to put this, but I just came from Barnes&Noble and I ordered TGO, they said it would be here on the 5th, apparently it is either coming out that day, or if you order through them it Will come in that day.

Congrats, Ciogli.

I was going to ask, who else has been able to officially buy a copy? (as a number of Westerosi report having purchased copies at their local B&Ns.)

I just got back from picking my copy up from a local B&N the second they opened.

I too was going to buy it on Amazon but when I saw it was coming out a week earlier through B&N there was no way I could suffer the thought of not going and grabbing a copy.  The world's getting completely shut out in the coming days!

I asked in my local Waterstones (I buy all my new books from there)

Apparently not available until September as a physical copy. Looks like us brethren over the ocean are wont to wait a while longer!

Did you inquire about being able to purchase the electronic copy at all, SR?

Cool, I had also considered this option, but had only checked online and had planned to go this week to check in store. I've ordered one from America and just paid the price for the fastest shipping they order.

It's only 10-14 days now depending on how quickly it ships.

Went to Barnes and Noble today because of this post. They had four copies in-stock and on the shelf. I am in Orlando, Florida. Paid the ridiculous in-store price ($32.00 after tax) for it so I could get my grubby fingers on it NOW.  ;D

Yeah, I hear ya, huskylord. I'll be even more saddened when the only stock of books Canada gets is the first one.

Lmao. Nice, Conditioned.

Yup, confirmed Barnes & Nobel. They had 2 in stores this weekend, and ordering is available online. FYI, its $10 cheaper online.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Cancelled amazon US and used the above. I now have an ETA of 12th July instead of 14-18th, slowly but surely finding the shortest path. :D

I'm splitting the 2 day shipping option with 5 people, which made it far more reasonable :P.

I was $36 for shipping. It would have been more if there had been an even faster method :)
