Mastering… XPatience

On 29 January I received a confirmation that my Amazon order for Mastering XPages was shipped. What shipped means here I have no idea but from a customer perspective I would expect: “expected to be dropped in your postbox any time now” but this seems not to be true:

Order Placed:

October 6, 2010

Shipment 1 of 1


Delivery Estimate: March 7, 2011

Thanks, but no thanks… I can still see that pile of books in the bookstore at LS2011 in front of my eyes…

    Excellent book btw

    Indeed they do. I ordered on the 2nd, it got shipped on the 4th and it arrived today (over the pond to old Germany). The pdf and ePub arrived immediately anyway.I did not buy from Amazon but IBM Press / ImformIT because they had a combined book + pdf/ePub offering with an additional 35% discount.
    And the books isn’t that bad either.

    Pre ordered with Amazon UK ages ago. Amazon shows that it should have been released on 19th Jan. Kindle Edition showed up online last week. Kinda tempted to cancel the book and go for the kindle edition.

    No option on amazon for a Book+Kindle bundle, like I see elsewhere.
