In a word... @#$%$#$ My wife is to Kindles like most people here are to Apple stuff. Her birthday is the 23rd, and the new Kindle Voyage releases tomorrow the 21st. I paid BB for pre-order, used a gift card which means they've had my $, and paid for expedited shipping so that I'd have it tomorrow. If you go try to place a pre-order even now you can have it in a couple days time (supposedly) Yeah. They're telling me now possibly delivered by the end of November. Possibly. So much for her birthday present. Clowns.
