My local Borders bookstore only ordered one copy of Head First Servlets and JSP. I placed the copy on reserve. They assured me that they would call me as soon as it arrived. Not believing them, I called them about 3 PM yesterday, and they said they still didn't have it and that they would definitely call me when it came in. I ended up going down to that same Borders last night about 8 PM to look for something else and I found myself wandering over to the computer section. Wouldn't you know it, there my book was! Not only did they not call me, but they put my reserved copy of the book on the shelf so that someone else could have bought it. I told the girl at the counter about it and she didn't seem to care.

The moral of the story: check up on these bookstores that claim they will call you when your HF arrives.
