My author copies showed up this weekend too.  Opened the box with the family; it was worth it just to see the look on the faces of my wife and daughter when they saw the dedication.  Everything else from now on is a bonus.

I've heard that Amazon is quoting a later date.  Not sure why.  Except perhaps their boxes ship after all the AHA orders are handled.  I will be signing some for the Brewing Network guys.  They should have it in their store sooner, after this weekend most likely.  The AHA store is obviously still selling it.

You're all making me jealous.

"Day 13 waiting for new brewing book. 
Recently confirmed book rate mail from CO to IA travels on a blind, crippled donkey through the Northern Pass to Idaho and then back through Canada and across ND."   
"Patience, grasshopper." 

;D

Seriously though, I'm not sweating it.  It will get here when it's time. I am looking forward to reading it though.

Just got mine in the mail.  Will read cover to cover, rinse repeat.
Worth the wait. 

Paul, we went on a river trip years back out of Bluff, Utah (look it up if you don't know).  They called wondering if we were going.  Said, "sent the check 7 or 8 days ago".  He laughed, and said no probelm.  The mail would have gone to SLC in 3 or 4 days, then moves one day at a time from town to town on the USPS trucks until it got there.  All was cool, and we had an excellent trip.

In the days of next day air, and the instant comunications from the internet, we forget that some things take some time.

My copy showed up today.  Took a little bit to unstick the glue from the envelope that got stuck to the top.

Took part of my BJCP exam study time today to read some of it and I'm already over a third through it.  Good so far.  I always feel bad for authors when I finish a book.  Took them forever to write and I tear through it in a day, week, month, etc.

I remember the days when rapid service meant under 14 days.   :D  I was going for funny and might have missed the mark. No worries here , I'm still working on the last issue or BYO anyway.  There's plenty of books left on the Kindle I haven't read yet.  I just wish Spring would get here.  4 inches of snow in Ames this morning and it just keeps getting colder here in Des Moines.

I got mine yesterday.  So far it seems very zen-like, as if I need to feel for and be the beer, but I'm not too far into it yet.
