Who already has their copy of the book? I requested it from the library, but it looks l like there is a waiting list, so I'll probably end up buying a copy later this week.

I picked up a copy on Kobobooks (my eReader). I'm finishing up The Girl With a Clock for a Heart right now, but I should finish in the next few days and then I'm starting TFFLOHA. Looking forward to it!!

I put in my ebook request with my library, I'm second in line for 3 copies so hoping I get it soon. If not I'll buy it by the end of the week too I think!

I bought it from Amazon for my Kindle reader. It was less than $10, so not bad. I'll be starting it tonight.

I'm finishing Timebound then I'll pick it up for my Kindle. Although, I really want to read the new Annum Guard book that is coming out tomorrow so I might finish that one first.

I bought it a couple weeks ago, so I'm super anxious to get started! I'm making myself finish some work first because I know once I start I won't want to come up for air til its done! LOL

I meant to say that it was on sale for 2.99 just a couple weeks ago for Kindle. So, I'll keep an eye out for any of you who may want to pick it up.

Oh, I'm bummed that I missed that! I'm hoping to pick it up for my Kindle soon, but I'll be on the look out for a sale while I finish up the book I'm currently reading.

I hadn't heard of this series - Annum Guard. I just read the synopsis, it looks good. I'll add it to my wishlist - seems like I'm reading more young adult stuff now than when I WAS a young adult!!!

Timebound (and the sequel) are some of my favorite books ever. I bought the first Annum Guard book last year and never got around to reading it. I need to move that to next on my list after Harry August!

There's a pretty long hold list at my library, I put my name on the list but it looks like I'll have to buy it or wait a good while to start. I wish I'd seen it at $2.99.

I bought mine just before Christmas on Amazon - part of 3 books for 10 deal - it's still on that too for anyone in the UK. (Also 2.99 on Kindle.) I've just started a different 800 page book so I'll have to make a start in a couple of weeks.

Mine does Kindle books, too, but the wait is usually REALLY long... like months. There are almost always at least 20-30 people ahead of me. This is another reason I need to move to NC!

So, I started the book, and I'm about 15% into it. I don't want to peek in the other thread til I finish because of spoilers. I'll just say here that I'm enjoying it so far and need more hours in the day! I'd love to just spend the whole day reading it!

I just got back from the library and they don't have it! They checked other surrounding suburbs' libraries and nobody had it! I was surprised! I guess I'll purchase it! Has anybody checked Costco?

Grabbed this book last night. I'm only on Chapter 8 and there's already so much to discuss. Wow!

Anyone else having a hard time getting through this book? I was into it the first few chapters, but I'm kinda stuck now. I think it's making me think too hard. Lol

Me! Lol I really wanted to read it based on all the rave reviews I'd heard, but it's going so slowly for me. I'm gonna need to read something light & fluffy next. Lol

Sometimes I have more than one book going at a time, so I can switch depending on what my mood is.

Wow! I'm struggling! I usually read quite a bit and read quite quickly but I am having a hard time getting through this book. I'm on about page 115. I don't want to look in the other thread with spoilers. Does it get better? It's dragging!
