    I wish Goldsboro would ship their copies of FULL THROTTLE...gettin’ itchy.

    On a related note, I canceled my pre-order of their S/L ed. of IMAGINARY FRIEND by Stephen Chbosky. Early positive reviews have turned to mixed as more reviews come in, and more pointedly I’ve had an opportunity now to thumb through the book and didn’t really care for much of what I saw.

    Still waiting for mine. Just sent Goldsboro an email to doublecheck and see if it was truly sent.

    Did you ever receive a shipping notice, Martin?

    Not exactly. I received an email on October 19th that said 'Your order placed on August 5th had been processed.'

    Just to clarify: my email also talked about the order being processed, it wasn’t actually a shipping notification as I’d thought/indicated earlier, though it did state that it would be shipping shortly. Still waiting for my copy to arrive. Haven’t heard back on yesterday’s email query.

    I have ordered from Goldsboro before..it takes ages and ages to arrive. They possibly use the cheapest option to ship and i usually forget about it and suddenly something arrives. Never had a missing book though.

    I do not recall prior shipments from them taking almost a month from the processing email to delivery. Of course I am old and can't remember what I had for breakfast so they may have. If tracking was available it would help. Royal Mail is very inexpensive but I have had shipments from England arrive as quick as a local order and take a long time.

    Nor have I; the time between is typically short. That’s why I assumed when I saw the processing email that it would be in my hands within a couple of weeks. But that didn’t happen this time, unfortunately.

    Well, my copy arrived today...if I'd only exercised another day of patience, I could have avoided bothering Goldsboro with an email...oh well. Looks great (and they matched my Goldsboro copy of THE FIREMAN as requested)...look forward to starting it very soon.

    Today was quite the Mail Day, as it turned out...not only did I have a box from Goldsboro, but I had two other large boxes with books in them. Haven't had a day where three -- count 'em, three -- boxes showed up all on the same day. The USPS parcel box was *stuffed* with boxes like a game of Jenga!

    Will be posting pics of all three over the next three days on Twitter.
