When I was a kid (a really long time ago), I used to get excited about Christmas. Not the religious part (that would be too mature), but the presents part. Really hard to go to sleep on Christmas Eve sometimes, in anticipation of what would be there in the morning. Thanks, Amazon, for rekindling those memories. Now hurry up and start shipping !!!

I never cared much for Christmas but when I sent in a quarter and two box tops to get a Sky King ring, the next morning would see me sitting on the step waiting for the mailman. He'd come down the street saying, "I've told you and told you, it won't be here for six weeks." He was right and I still sat on the porch most days waiting for him.

Nothing has changed except now I sit on the computer checking the tracking for UPS.

Well, I'm finally on Kindle Watch - kind of. After whining in the trade-in thread last night because I hadn't heard from Amazon about my Voyage trade-in, I got the message from Amazon today. So....

I used the Apple credit and ordered a merlot cover a while ago for fear merlot would go on back order the way it did with Oasis 1.

Just a few minutes ago, I ordered the 8 gig Oasis with special offers and didn't even get a potential delivery date. Don't know why I did that. I always get them with special offers to save the $20 then promptly decide I can't stand it and get the s.o. removed. Who am I fooling? Me?

I don't have Prime and just check for free delivery, which is the slowest way. Not only that, I've noticed lately they hold the order and don't ship it for a week or so because it used to be ordering that way got delivery pretty darn quick. The reason I dumped Prime after one year was several times I ordered something that supposedly was Prime and it took a week to 10 days to arrive. When I know delivery will be slow, I can be patient, but when I'm paying for fast and it doesn't happen I get antsy.

Anyway, I'm sure I''ll have it by Christmas. :)

For the longest time, my order said 'expected to ship October 27'. So of course I checked it multiple times yesterday. The green bar got longer but, really, no change.

This morning it says 'shipping soon'. I guess that's progress! :)

Mine has changed from shipping 10/27 to shipping soon, as well.  But its makjng some progress on the Your Devices page, yesterday it had 23 for the pic and type was dummy, today it has a pic of the new Oasis and type is Kindle Oasis (9th generation).  But still no serial number.

Well I couldn't decide on the 3G vs Wi-Fi so after going back and forth (3G) I now have a delivery date of November 24th. That's ok since maybe by then there will be more cover choices and hopefully Decal Girl.

 :( I'm getting worried. It's Sunday morning and mine still hasn't shipped. It used to say that it was shipping on the 27th. But it still says that it's arriving Tuesday. Not optimistic that that's gonna happen. Nothing has appeared on the My Devices page, either. I placed my order minutes after the new Oasis was announced.

I don't think you need to worry. Likely the units have already been shipped to various Amazon warehouses -- mine's probably sleeping less than 10 miles from me right now. :o Which means to get it to people on time they won't really need to have it picked up until the day before. So I'm expecting it to show 'shipped' by the end of the day tomorrow.

But . . . don't you have it showing on your devices page as "astroboy's Xth kindle"? Mine has been there since I placed the order. For the longest time it had 'dummy string' under type, but now it definitely says "Kindle Oasis (9th Generation)" -- which is confusing for other reasons, but, whatever. :)  I haven't checked that in a couple of days so am not sure exactly when it changed. Still it SHOULD be listed on your devices page unless you marked it as a gift.

Hmmm. If you didn't mark it as a gift, you might want to contact them. Mine's been there since the day I ordered -- I can even re-name it.

I was checking Amazon hourly until I got the shipment notice.  Latest info is it left Wisconsin yesterday.  Mine is coming via USPS so it needs to be in East Point, GA by Monday night for met to get Tuesday.  At least with USPS I know I will have it before noon.

My new Oasis has arrived in East Point, Ga.  Normally I would get it the next day.  So they will have to hold it for Tuesday to be the day.  Occasionally I have seen them let it through early.  Here's hoping!

Unlikely, Shiny, since it's not officially released before Tuesday.

I'm guessing they just want to be sure that the things are near enough to final destinations that there won't be a problem delivering even if there's weather or something. :)

That's why I'm going to wait until December to order, and not open it until Christmas morning.

I remember reading that customers really enjoy waiting for a package to ship, and then monitoring its progress. So enjoy your anticipation!

Some people on Mobile Reads received theirs yesterday and there are some early impressions posted over there. Very positive. The bold font update isn't on it yet, though that may be precisely  because the Oasis is not officially released until Tuesday.
