I just got it for 5.24 with free shipping, can't believe how cheap that was. Now i just have to wait til march.

I don't get how they can afford that. o.e

So I just got an email from The Book Depository telling me that my pre-order of Mr. Monster is now available and will be sent out in the next few days . . .

WOOT!

Price has just gone up to 9 dollars at Book Depository.  But they will be shipping soon.  Can't wait.

Just ordered it. . . . I think I'm going to have to fight my grandmother for rights to read it first.

. . . . maybe I should have bought two copies, or at least a button that says I am Not a Serial Killer so that they know whichever us ends up reading it "first" is innocent when they come to clean up the mess.

I did buy two.   ;D

Course, one of them is for my friend.  Late Christmas present.  But still...

Got my email yesterday as well.  Going to be checking on its progress every day from now until arrival.

my copy of Mr Monster (well, my wife's copy since she is the person reading it) came today.  I'm curious as to her enjoyment of it.  I thought it was great when I read it a while back, but my wife has a very different take on novels than I do (as well as completely different taste).

I might have to dig deep into my pockets and order this one too. I got I Am Not A Serial Killer on Monday and have torn my way through it (I would be done by now, but I'm trying to pace myself to maximize enjoyment). I couldn't wait the month for it to come out, and I don't think I'll be able to deal with the wait for Mr. Monster...

My copy came today too! (Darn you, Bookstore Guy, I wanted to be first.)  I'm so excited to read it, but I have to decide whether to finish the library books I have first.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

I'm still waiting for mine, but sadly, my grandmother will get to read it first, considering I'm busy with other things.

Read the first chapeter last night.  Can't wait for more.  John is such an interesting charecter.  BTW I love the British covers.  They're great to look at.
