I pre-ordered the new Charlaine Harris book due to be released tomorrow.  Does that mean it could be delivered at midnight?

TIA,

Deborah

Just curious...what is the advantage of pre-ordering an eBook?  It's not a physical product so it's not as if they could run out of them, and you can just purchase it as soon as it's available and it will come to you instantly.

I'm probably missing something LOL.  Could someone fill me in?

I think it's just that some people want it as soon as possible when it comes out. . . .

It's also helpful if you buy a lot of books, especially new releases.  I know I want the new book/s by my favorite authors, but I don't want to go to the trouble of keeping track of the exact release dates.  This way I can preorder, and as soon as it's released I have it without any further effort on my part.

I have a really bad memory (or try to remember too much) by pre-orderering, I don't have to worry.

I too pre-ordered this, it arrived at 2AM Central Time. Considering Amazon is based out of Seattle, that would be midnight Pacific Time. Works for me, all I wanted was to wake up and find it on the Kindle, and with all my pre-orders that's what happens :)

PS - the reason I pre-order is because I love my favorite authors and want to read their new stuff as soon as it comes out. This used to mean waiting for the mailman to come on the release date or driving to Barnes and Noble or Borders and standing in a huge line waiting forever for my new book... now it's effortless! So much better to wake up and find it waiting for me, it's kind of like Christmas morning every morning a pre-order is delivered :)
