    Please send the book!

    How can I write a review when you haven't even sent me the book yet? I would like to say that I did NOT appreciate how you automatically lumped together this book with another one I wanted right away--but since this one ISN'T OUT YET--now I don't get either book until late in the Spring. Bad job Barnes and Noble!!
