The Rookie individual book number?

  • Profile photo of Joe Boivin

    Anyone know why my hardcover of The Rookie is not numbered or signed? I’m glad to have it, but just wondering if anyone else has an un-numbered book? The GFL Series rocks (and everything Scott has penned)!

    I no quite a lot of people who have taken very limited amount luggage, then filled it up to take back home. As its so much cheaper in the states an in the UK, well it is when it comes to clothes, Levi’s are more than double the prices in the UK wouldnt you just

    Every once and awhile the news does a story on tourist that when the visit Orlando they don’t bring any luggage and just buy what the need here and fill there bags with tons of stuff to take back.

    But it used to be a lot better, it was about $2 to ever £1, its now about $1.5 -£1 so it has made things quite a bit more expensive. But you always get a worse rate of exchange anyway when you buy things over net. So instead of $1.5-£1 it would be $1.45-£1. But as i am only buying 2 books are year i am not to bothered

    Had been told that is not very good in Australia for importing things as the exchange rate is really bad, (i may be wrong tho)

    …the US/UK exchange rate made things cheaper? Australia recently achieved parity with the US, making American stuff much more affordable for us (taking massive shipping prices into consideration, of course). I thought the British pound was heaps stronger than the greenback? PS. I’m probably wrong. I know precisely zero about economics and exchange rates. :p

    Profile photo of Scott Wilson

    Amazon shipping is quite expensive to get a book shipped to the UK but not the only extra cost. There’s the exchange rate as well, which puts the cost of the books up as well, i think for the crown books it made them at least 1/3 more expensive if not more.

    But the FDO shipping cost is a lot better as i dont think it cost any more to get the GFL books sent over

    If you use the Priority Mail International Flat Rate Video Box (tight fit length wise), it costs $13-14 depending on whether you buy online or at the post office. Otherwise you’re looking at $30-50. I didn’t look at any other carriers.

    I think if you order it from here, the FDO can still personalize it for you. But don’t hold me to that. He may not do that anymore since DØM partnered with BackMyBook.com. Either way, you should get one soon because when they’re gone, they’re gone!!

     but I never imagined that I would get my original #s. Does that mean y’all actually produced more than 3000 anticipating postal "shrinkage?" I suppose that would be prudent, and obviously the FDO is wise, but I’m not sure how you’d go about guestimating what the shrinkage percentage would be. I’m pretty sure it’s about 4% for retail, but there almost all of it is employee theft. 

    I’m not concerned at all about my books now that I know I’ll be getting my original #s. I’m sorely tempted to tell A to hold on to them until I see her at HallowEvoCon to ensure I get them safely. Don’t suppose SoupBone is going to hop over to Hell for that shindig? Oh, that’s right, it’s invitation only….. Although I’m guessing the Bone could finegle one if he wanted to go.
