If I send you footage of me going outside to pick up the package with the book, and then opening the package like a kid on Christmas, will you put it up on the site? :D

So if I live in NY, when would you estimate I will get it? The delayed shipping thing is confusing me.

My guess is the 3rd week of December, if they get your order out by Monday

I think this question was asked on MP's forum, but do we get a confirmation e-mail that they are shipped to our address or do they arrive when they arrive. I'll be checking my emails a lot this week hoping to see one

EDIT:Looks like some people have gotten emails confirming shipment. Hope to get one soon.

Hi
The books are in the proces of being shipped. Emails were being sent but there seemed to be a problem with them displaying other names and addresses. The publishers are aware of this and trying to solve. Bottom line is though that the books are being shipped this week. With 2000 orders to get through it may take some days but hopefully you'll all have your books soon!

Same. The order I made is still sitting in the warehouse (according to the tracking system).

That's right, I have no patience.

Still waiting on mine. But I do know its there because I got an email from them concerning I question I had about a charge on my card. He said its sitting in the warehouse waiting for shipment. Hopefully tomorrow.

Edit: What's nice about the publishers being in England... When I wake up in the morning at 6... its already noon or so there.

I got an email giving details of how to find out if you won the golden book.

I did not. :(

I didn't win it, but that's okay.

Now does that email also double as a "your book has been shipped" or what. I still haven't gotten a confirmation e-mail, but that "Did you win the golden book" email said all the books are out shipping

Does anyone know if the US orders come in the regular mail or by UPS?

I think its USPS. Let's hope same thing doesn't happen here like it did with my BC&SL boxset. They had too many orders so they refused to ship mine out for awhile.

And I did get my confirmation today. Another 6-10 days, and I will be sitting pretty. I might not get it until Christmas Eve, but that's fine

Rich, are all the copy shipped ? Because I didn't receive the e-mail confirmation, but when I entered my code to see if I won the golden book it said that all the copies were shipped.
