I should have known better. When I saw that Can't Take My Eyes Off of You was slated for a November release date, I should have ordered the damn book at the last possible minute. Did I heed my own advice? Did I pay attention to that niggling voice of doubt? Hell, no! So I naturally ordered copies for work several weeks ago - only to discover that the publication date has since been pushed back to April 29, 2008!
Now I have to notify our acquisitions department to wrangle with Baker & Taylor to ensure the copies I did order aren't "cancelled" (which they typically are if B&T can't fill the order within an allotted time period).
Sidenote: I seriously doubt McNaught hates librarians, the title was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. However I still haven't quite forgiven her for the Water's Edge fiasco from a few years back. That was a huge "problem" book for me at work for the longest time. I kept ordering the damn thing, and it kept getting cancelled. Then I had to explain to library patrons 1) why we didn't have it 2) the latest scuttlebutt about it's publishing schedule and finally 3) why the book with said title was never going to materialize. Seriously, it drove me bat-shit.
