Well, I'm referring more to past sales as an example. The initial books sold very well and while this isn't a huge release like Harry Potter, past sales should have been an example.

However, if Wal-Mart has actually shipped the books (does anyone have tracking numbers confirming?) come Monday I plan on being on the phone with my distributor letting them know that Wal-Mart has broken the street date.

billbo said:That's EXACTLY what's happened to me, down to your order date. June 9 here, too. And they only seemed to have changed the status to "Preparing to ship" after I wrote an email to them.
They didn't really respond to the email (they did send me a form letter offering me $5.00 off on my next purpose, but they didn't answer my questions about "When?").
So I don't know if my books are really getting prepped to ship or (big finger quote marks) getting "prepped" to "ship." I have this sneaking suspicion they just thought, "Oh, this guy's complaining, let's claim we're 'prepping' his books to 'ship' to shut him up."

You're being overly paranoid. I order lots of things from Amazon, and they just don't do things like that. Besides, I got a response this morning and I got the $5 thing too, and I've used it already at that. Simply managed to catch them at the perfect time, and instead of getting the comments the others were getting, we got the new one since they're now definatly in. Amazon doesn't usually ship on weekends, so its going to be mid next week by the time I get them. And if you need proof they aren't just messing with you, Psi is right. They are now listed as "In Stock" and shipping in 2-3 days on the PHB page.

I placed my order on June 10th...

In reply, they changed my ship date from July 8th to July 17 or 18th. Ergo, I dropped in priority. On the other hand, I've now got second-day shipping for free.
