On Barnes & Noble's website, "First Among Sequels" is listed as being released not on July 23rd, but on July 19th. (USA)

Lucky you!

I don't keep track of these and just wait until I see it. Which, as I'm looking for the paperback and Forth Bear hasn't even made that yet, is going to be a long time.

If it's because of cost reasons (that was the main reason I used to only get paperback), have you tried any used bookstores? Also, I've found BookMooch very good. I've received a lot of books that would normally be difficult for me to get.

Aren't you in the UK, reading_fox? You must be waiting for the smaller paperback that is coming out this June. The large-size trade PB came out last summer. I too prefer to wait for the smaller trade PB; it's less expensive and easier to handle.

Edited to add: I didn't even know that Fforde's books were published in hardcover. I've never seen a hardback copy; either new or used.

Yep, I'm UK based.

It is the small PBs that I want. I just don't have the room for HB or even large PB anymore. I like them, I could afford them, but I really really couldn't fit anymore books in if I bought HB. So I wait - Used bookshops will be of no use if it hasn't been published yet.

The original TN books were only paperback, but the Nursery Crime ones have all come out in Hardback first - though they look like PB with drawn in bent corners and scuffs etc! TN has now been released in this format too.

I can relate to the space issue. I really need to do a major cull of old mass market stuff that I don't really want anymore (Robin Cook, etc.) and old uni textbooks that I haven't touched in almost 20 years.
