I've never done a pre-order with Amazon. Do they allow you to cancel the order and get a refund?
Yes, within reason though, if you cancel it the day it is dispatched then the likelihood is that they are sending you it, but this is only with Amazon not any of the other sellers on the site. If you do get something you ultimately do not want, you just click on the return item section.

So it apparently is an option and you can then buy the book someplace else.

They have an other seller section when you click on an item, for used and new copies, but most go for the Amazon price as they usually have the best offer, except with music for whatever reason, especially CD's.

I thought about pre-ordering but decided to wait until I made a Costco run (ysterday). I picked up the book for $22.99 Canadian, even though the flap price said $39.99. I've already read only about 20 pages of the first story but, as usual, am hooked.
Was the price on the back American?

Still no book and Amazon had taken my money almost a month ago from my pre-order. That's the last time I pre-order a book... At least that way I'll still have my money until I get a book.
I never get charged on a pre-order from Amazon until it ships. Wonder why you got charged early?

My book is supposed to be here tomorrow. Not happy about that as I pre-ordered in January and I am a prime member. It has been over a week since it shipped.
