Hard Copy

Maybe I have missed it somewhere, but I was wondering if there has been a release date for the hard copy of FOA 2009? I'm waiting to purchase a copy I can take with me on the road, as I travel a lot, and I was just wondering when I will be able to order it. I know it's been declared that it will be towards the end of the month before it will be available, just wondering if there is a date.

No specific date yet, sorry. Depends on a lot of factors out of our control.

Okay, I have to ask, does anyone know the Size in KB of the PDF?

Realistically, there are only a few chapters I would want to print. What I am trying to determine is can I do put it on a USB drive and take it to Kinkos and print those.

I would prefer to have a hard copy, but with all of the issue this year, I am still glad to have this resource in any form.

I thought there would be an option to buy the e-version of the book now along with the printed one when it became available. I hope this is the case because many of us would like the best of both worlds without having to pay for each separately.

I hope they do that.

Any idea on how much both would cost together?

I just want you to know, that due to the lack of hard copy FOA, I read through the Fox Sports pre-camp previews. See what you made me do.

can I purchase this book at a bookstore? If so, where? Books-a-million? Borders? Barnes and Noble?

No, no, no, and no. It is available online only, at least for this year. See here for more info.

I just went to purchase the hard copy at Createspace. The earliest shipping date listed was Aug. 11. I just wanted to make sure this was accurate before completing the order.

If it is accurate, would there be much difference in arrival time between Createspace and Amazon?

That is an error. There's a bug at Createspace's website that causes it to tell you a shipping date that's wrong. If you do two-day shipping, you'll have it in two days; week shipping will get it in a week. I've complained to them about the bug...

Man... I just bought it. Shipping was killer but I'll pay that little bit extra over Amazon's shipping to:

1. Give FO more profit.
2. Order it now and have it done with. I'm tired of waiting; the anticipation is killing me!

The two-day shipping was just ludicrous (Amazon Prime trial gives me free two-day shipping, whereas here is was $16!), so I had to settle for the middle level. Not sure if that's a week or what, but I'm just hoping it comes in on the 30th or sooner because I'm leaving on vacation on the 31st and that would be dreadful to not be able to bring it along for some quality reading time.

Still no sign of the book on Amazon. I live in Ireland so Createspace's shipping costs are totally exorbitant. Is Amazon not selling the item this year.
