Got my Waterstones Nation too - Number 790 - and there was a stack of them in both our Waterstones branches on Saturday with an odd mixture of numbers?! I thought they would be consecutive but they covered quite a span.

I'm really pleased because although I love the black illustrations inside the book I am not that impressed with the colour cover and the black cover really complements the inner illustration. And its already a second edition so Doubleday must be pleased too!

I'm really happy I didn't buy a cheapie from a supermarket. Thank you Waterstones!

ALSO found a signed Marcus Sedgwick 'Kiss of Death' without anything on the cover to say it was signed!

And buoyed up by this I then went across town to Borders and picked up a signed Darren Shan book for my youngest.

Must now lock my debit card away until Christmas... Ha ha ha :-)

Me too! When I saw that people were getting them early I thought - I wonder if Colin knows. :)

You guys are a bad influence on me - went out & bought it! Number 61, so that's not bad.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
