I am the Pre-Order Queen

I feel compelled to mention how many/which books I have on pre-order at Amazon. If you’re Telfer, the whole concept is ridiculous, if you’re me, the anticipation is way fun (don’t worry family and friends, there is no marital strife over the money I spend on books -there is a line item in our budget for Andrea’s Books).      

I just got my first preorder this week for the year:
