Released today?

Recommended Posts

Must remember in future that I do not live in Melbourne, and thus 2-3 day shipping within Melbourne would not apply to me. Estimated time of arrival is now a day before the American release.... Sorry everyone :'(

Angus and Robertson has the publish date as tomorrow, so I don't know what that means for the date of purchase. Usually it's available 2-3 days after it so that makes it the 22 or 23 of October. I'll try and get it, but I don't think I'd post any spoilers.

This is in Australia.

Interesting, I've ordered in Melbourne and the shipping date isn't until the 28th.

Mine still says within 2-3 days I think, but perhaps longer since it is in the eastern states and I'm in the western one.

Which is still 3 days earlier than me. So, if you're still feeling generous, I shall check in with you for Egg's wife name. :D

I see no change on Amazon's UK site, where my pre-order is placed. I've never known Amazon be late without being warned, so, when next Tuesday (28th Oct) arrives, I shall await the knock on my door (usually around 13:45 (local).



By the way, how much is anyone paying? I'm being charged £14.95, that's 50% discount on RRP.


Kindle version isn't due until 20th Nov, price = £12.99.

I already got my copy today! :) Strange, I've been expecting to get it next week but it has been available since yesterday.



Loving the book so far, especially about the Targaryen details. :thumbsup:

Well we know Starks were pretty much their own independent kingdoms, so who knows, perhaps they Aegon tried to truly bring the North into the fold. Probably a commoner most like, but a green apple to thank Tanton has always been my best though.

People already have it? Oh no! I wanted to troll the boards just before it came out! You know how highly anticipated movies are shipped to the theaters under fake names to prevent leaks? I was going to pretend I'd snuck into a bookstore's storage room and sliced open a box labeled The World of Ice and Fire and instead found The Winds of Winter ready for release on Tuesday. Foiled!

I preordered it last week and got a phone call as I was leaving work yesterday afternoon that they got the shipment today and could pull one off for me . (If anybody is in NYC penn books in Penn Station still has 1 copy behind the register) Tuesday is date night with the fiancé so I didn't have much time ,but I did look through it for a half hour. Artwork is beautiful family trees are great(Brandon ice eyes). I'll come back with more this evening.

I preordered it at Thalia yesterday and picked it up today. It only takes one day. You can order it also on their website and they'll deliver it within 1 or 2 days.
