Yay! Mine shipped, but I am still rereading tGS and then need to get through tToM so I am not in a rush...I want to savor the moment. Enjoy!

Why didn't they release it as an e-book?

I think Harriet has a beef with ebooks in general. So while it will come out in an ebook format, it won't be on the publication date. I haven't heard a date for when an ebook will be available. :-( That would have been my preference. ETA I just saw on Tor's website: April 9 is the date for e-reader formats.

huh. The ebook thing is dumb.

I have it on hold at the library, but there's a good chance I won't get it before I fly out of town. In that case... Since the last thing I need is to spend money on another book that I'll have to spend money to ship to another continent (and since I'll have a hassle getting an English version once I'm there) I guess I might just have to wait until April 9th :-p

Harriet doesn't really trust ebooks all that much. Also she didn't want to damage her husband's legacy. Apparently as far as number sold and bestseller rank, sometimes ebooks and hardbacks are counted separately and sometimes the ebooks aren't counted at all. So I guess it was delay the ebook until the first run Hardback was out of the way.
