    On Dec 17 Butcher released the name of the 6th book on his website.

    This is a huge suprise. Its very original.

    First Lord's Fury.

    Hard to believe he would ever come up with a name like that isnt it.

    It's not like he would want another name. He's been using the same pattern the book titles since the first one.

    Breaking it would be like trying to re-name the star wars episode 6 to " the grand finale"

    Have not. Book $9, Shipping to Australia through Amazon $35, just hoping my local Borders up on the coast has it on the day.

    You get it through Amazon? they're doing the whole arrive on release date for this book, or so I heard, so you should get it on the day.

    I probably won't read it until I get back from Thanksgiving Break, and even then a might wait a bit since I'm almost got up with the Nightside Series and I want to finish it.

    I just figured it was just an estimation and they didn't put it in the system that the book was being released.

    It will come before December 24th...

    Right?

    I certainly hope so.

    While ebooks are fine, sitting comfortably with a book in your lap and a beer in your hand is so much better... I just hope that I'll be doing that somewhere in the next 3-4 weeks.

    Till than I will try to avoid all the spoilers that I can.

    ^ Agreed. A solid book is waaaaay better than reading on the computer.

    I'm kicking myself at the moment for ordering First Lord's Fury- it's going to arrive in the middle of Finals week. Self control? Not a chance. >_>

    Updated my shipping speed to one business day a couple of days later that week.

    This morning, my shipping status went from shipping soon to shipped. Guess I'll receive it today or tomorrow.

    No class tomorrow until 4 PM, which means I'm biking my ass up to B&N and picking up FLF.

    Can't wait, better be in stock :).

    Edit:I love credit cards.

    Preordered FLF from B&N as an ebook for $9.99. I've been told it will be readable as soon as 12:01 AM EST.
