    my PB copy of Infected was used too… but not perfect. I need to get me a new one.. I did see on the link that you sent tht I could get all 3 hardbacks Infected, Contagious and Ancestor for under $40.. tempting…

    Profile photo of NeilColquhoun

    No creases on spine or torn pages. Covers are perfect too.

    Profile photo of athanas

    Figured it made more sense to get a $10 to go with it as opposed to buying a $16 book and paying $5 for shipping anyway; seeing as how Scott won’t be here until the 7th, it should get here in plenty of time regardless.

    I did not do super saver shipping but my still shows anticipated delivery date of the 26th. My ship date was the day of release. Amazon always does this to me because ours (here in Texas) comes from the Kansas warehouse. I’m still sending Amazon an email. If other warehouses can ship early then I see no reason that the Kansas warehouse can’t as well.

    I’ll pick them up tomorrow. If you ordered the free super saver shipping, it takes longer, so you get them between the 26th and the 30th. That’s why I actually went with 2-day shipping. I had to be sure I had mine sooner because Scott will be here on the 27th.

    I went to a Barnes & Noble store and could not find a copy. The store employee went to store room to look for the copy and could not find one. She checked all the different sections she thought somebody might have stocked it but could not find it. Finally she found all the stores copies in a stack of books waiting stocked.
