Available at Amazon May 30

I've been checking Amazon each day in anticipation that  Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It's Too Late would at any time be listed as "in stock" and available to ship.  As I posted here earlier this week, I received my shipment of author's copies from the publisher's warehouse on Monday.  Maybe I was being too impatient, but I thought Amazon would be shipping books sometime this week.  Today the Amazon page for the book was just updated to state that it will be in stock May 30, which is Sunday.  I know a lot my readers here have pre-ordered the book and I hate to see you kept waiting to receive it, but at least I know it won't be much longer.

And those of you who have been promised review copies will be getting those soon too, but it will likely be sometime next week before they are shipped.

In the meantime, the book is available in electronic format right now in Amazon's Kindle store.  If you don't have a Kindle reading device, you can download the free Kindle for PC (or Mac) application.  I've been using this for awhile on my laptop, as a friend sent me a wealth of out-of-print sailing and adventure books that were scanned to PDF files.  I intend to buy the smaller, Kindle 2 reader at some point as well.  While I don't think it will ever replace paper books, it will be a useful way to carry an extensive library of references and cruising guides in a compact and lightweight space when I start sailing again.  One of these smaller units could even fit in a bug-out bag, and used sparingly, the battery would last a long time without a recharge.  The Kindle version of Bug Out is here:
