I don`t know how accurate this is, but Borders lists the paperback for Nation as having a publication date of 1st October, 2009. Hmm, now there`s a clunky sentence. :laugh:

Good to see you again Little Pixie! :laugh:

I guess that would probably be about right as far as the release date for the paperback. I was just looking on the home site of this forum - Random House, Terry's UK publisher, but I don't see anything there about a release date - yet. :)

Now you mention it, I think you did. My memory is awful. :laugh:

But this airport edition isn't the same as a mass market paperback that seems to be coming out September or October, is it? o_O

Right ive just checked and looking at the amount of pages and cost its got to be a normal corgi sized book, so that means its another one to add to my wants list :)

I think it's rather odd, I saw the paperback edition a week ago.

Well, I guess the Dutch people get the paperbacks in advance, mwhahahaha :twisted:

I remember going to pick up my friend's copy of one of the Harry Potter books (she was on holiday) from a Dutch bookstore, the paperback and the hardback were out on the same day. Is that the same with Pratchett books there? o_O
