The first two days it was only two shops, but now it is quite a few more. Unless you're living in Drente or Overijsel, there should be one reasonably close by. And, let's face it: hardly anyone important lives in those provinces.
well, it was a bit more complicated I ordered the book from the signed page after an article on Dragonmount. But I figured "why wait over a month on a signed book, when you can buy another copy right away" ... so a few days after the release I started looking in the book stores. I find it more enjoyable just browsing stores to see if I can find the book... in my opinion, web shops are the easy way out. All though I'll order sooner at a web shop than a book store.

And i live in (province) Utrecht, but just barely its a 15 minute Walk from my home in Veenendaal (grand total of 68.000 inhabitants ) to the border with Gelderland.

Of course I did browse bol.com, blz.nl, selexyz.nl ect. in the progress of the book becomming available. and after aswell.

Eventually my girlfriend told me that if I wanted to get the book that bad, I should just order a second copy online, and so I did... and I still haven't received the copy from the signed page, signing was somewhere late November, so i'm still waiting on it .
