Does pre-ordering books make them arrive faster? Probably not. I doubt my desperation to read the next book in a series affects publishers' schedules. On the other hand, there is satisfaction in knowing I've done all I can do to get hold of the book asap.
So there's my excuse for a buying binge on 2010 urban fantasy.
Diana Wynne Jones, Enchanted Glass
Patricia Briggs, Steel Borne
Patricia Briggs, Alpha and Omega
Tanya Huff, Enchantment Emporium
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bleeds
Lisa Shearin, Bewitched and Betrayed
Gail Carriger, Changeless
And I'm going to label this post reviews because handing over my money is a huge endorsement.
