Default Amazon shipping delays

What have you guys been getting as announced shipping delays from amazon? I ordered the US version (TOR cover) from amazon.fr and they told me the probable shipping date would be Jan 24th. Of course I don't want to wait that long!

Do you guys think this is the probable real shipping date or not? Do you think I would get it faster if i cancel my order now and then replace it once the book is released (?)

I've never preordered a book from amazon before so any input would be appreciated.

I poked around town to try to see if I could get a copy from a local indie store early. When that failed, I pre-ordered from Amazon, and they said the 8th was day of delivery.

Of course, we'll not know for sure until it actually arrives...

Ha! And the time. Jan 8th, by 8:00 pm.

Just ordered something from them as well, and it got here in 2 days.

Of course, I had to join Prime for free, but I'll just cancel after aMoL gets here.

I pre-ordered it last week from Amazon (Prime). It's supposed to get to my door tomorrow by 8 pm, but as of 11:30 a.m. this morning it hasn't shipped.

That's going to be an expensive package for them if this is indeed the case, so I'm hoping they just haven't updated their database yet. I'm a little nervous, though...

Any Germans around, who know where to get the book faster, than with a 7-days-delay like on amazon? If there is no onlineshop, i would simply buy it in frankfurt.

Is anyone going to start with an audible download if it takes a couple of days to get the physical book?

I am. My physical copy of the book hasn't arrived yet but I had several spare Audible credits so bought the Audio version (I have the other 14 so I was going to get it anyway). I'm listening to it while I work

Anaiya posted basically exactly the same thing on Facebook. I get the feeling a lot of people are doing this...

There was a shipping debacle in Brisbane today - several angry bookstores ended up calling the publishers as they hadn't sent them as of this morning. Thankfully they sent them shortly after; first copies were sighted here 2pm, my mob got them 3ish.
There was a huge crowd at the store first thing too. The poor staff were thoroughly sick of ARE WE THERE YET by the time it arrived.

Ironically, my backups arrived at my house up in Rocky (700km away) promptly at 8.30am this morning... -sigh-
