Ditto. And you know what? The e-book will be available anyways - illegally scanned from the hardcover with the result that many users who would have loved to pay honest bucks for the e-book edition are now tempted to load a pirated version on their PDA. I remember very well last year; it took e-book pirates less than one week
to scan and proof-read the forth Harry Potter once it'd hit the bookshelves.
