B&N thinks 'soon' is 34 days?

I pre-ordered the Nook the first day (prob close to the first hour that you could) and I just got this email an hour ago.

Thank you for choosing nook, yours will ship Soon*

LOL

Think some orders will start shipping earlier then expected, or does their marketing really consider 34 days 'soon' ?

haha

I would say taht the marketing department probably thinks 30+ days is soon... while 6 months out would be in a while...

Actually I think that since the offical press release and the ship date is pretty darn fast, many companies do offical press releases and then ship the product 6+ months later.

I got it, too, and also had a chuckle.
As for shipping ahead of schedule, I'm hoping for the best and expecting the worst.

I received the email but when I tried to log into the B & N Website it said that my order number was invalid. Are any of you actually able to confirm from the email that Nov 30 is still the expected ship date?

Yes, I went and checked my order status using the link in the email and it's still saying the ship date is Nov. 30.

Be thankful you're not dealing with Bookeen's idea of soon.
