Borders/Warbreaker help!?
« on: June 02, 2009, 07:47:29 PM »
Hi everyone :),
I was wondering if anyone has been able to/has tried preordering Warbreaker on Borders.com.  I was trying to, but they don't even have it listed.  They only have an audio version on there.  Has anyone else tried this/succeeded in ordering the book?
Thanks!

Ya, looks like Borders isn't taking pre-orders for Warbreaker. Wierd. It's on Barnes & Noble and Amazon. I don't know if you REALLY prefer to buy your books through Borders. If so, maybe it's time to change.  ;)

But -- I have $15 in borders bucks to spend this month, plus it's in a much more convenient location (I wouldn't have to drive most of the way across Rochester).   :(

I wonder if it's a mistake and they listed it as Audio--it looks like the price for that is the same price as the book.

Thanks for your help and also looking on Borders.com (I thought I might be going crazy and just not seeing it...)!

And yes, I'm getting it shipped to the store and picking it up as it is very difficult to get packages delivered to my apartment successfully--and I'm scared to just go buy it on the 9th, because it took FOREVER for the Rochester Borders and Barnes and Nobles to get Hero of Ages.

Because I lived there for 6 years.  :)

I'm only teasing.  Rochester is actually a pretty nice city.

Oh, OK. Yeah I was just wondering 'cause both my parents went to school there and they both loved it, so.

Sweet--thank you for your help!!

Yeah, Rochester is a very nice city.    I've only lived here a little less than a year.  It's really pretty, the people are very nice, and the freeway system is awesome.   The winter almost killed me though, but I survived. :D

I have Baptist Jensen cousins in Rochester.

Good to see Borders now has it up. I know their website hasn't been a big priority in the past...they used to outsource it to Amazon and are only recently getting with it.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!
