[ profile] a_happy_book and anyone else who might happen to be in Australia, I have news! I went into a bookstore today and asked when the books are coming to Australian stores, and it turns out the answer is...August. Which sucks.

But not all is lost - it turns out they can ship out the books from the US, and you don't have to pay extra for shipping! Or at least, you can at Dymocks. I'm not sure about other bookstores, but I imagine they'd be able to do the same. I ordered the books from them myself, and they said they should arrive in the next few weeks. Soooooo we shouldn't have to go and wait until August or pay to get them shipped over the Pacific Ocean, at least :P

Bookdepository doesn't have shipping costs, I think? (at least not to the Netherlands, maybe also not to Australia?).

August! Oh my goodness. I'd been assuming it'd be roughly simultaneous, like telly is these days. Thanks for letting us know.

Have you tried Booktopia? There was a sale on there a little while back ( Don't know if there's another one now, but the books are being released on May 1st in Australia, according to their site.

This works out well for me- by August I should have a job and enough money to buy books. xD And so I think I'll wait for then. =D

Good tip, though!

I'll be in the States by that point.

Oh my (awkward) book life.

I head back at the end of June so I feel like waiting is the best option. Plus am buying all of Marsden books and just bought WAR OF THE WORLDS - so mum is already going to kill me with extras I am bringing back :P

come to Brisbane so i can flail with you!


But yeah I'm restraining myself...if they're in the States, why should I pre-order if I'm going back in (sniff) 2 months? A bit waste of $$$.
From: [identity profile]
Whoops sorry I meant "order" not pre-order. I keep thinking we're not yet in May (idk why). And yeah, how much $ was it? Did you go to a Border's or a QB? (Do they have those other places than QLD? lolol)

Ahhh Dymocks! I was forgetting the name of the store so I was like "that red bookstore" but I realised that sounds silly. And yeah Brissy is keen on bookstores I love it. :P
