I ordered Peopleware from Amazon at the beginning of October. I just received my second shipment delay notification, to mid January. This isn't the first order this has happened with.

Anyone had good experiences with alternative sites that offer similar discounts and the same wide range of shipping alternatives? I'm about ready to switch.

Try bookpool

I have not ordered from them in some time, but have had very good luck in the past.

Interesting to hear that. I had only outstandnig delivery times with them. Sometimes would receive items on a second day even though the order was placed on Sunday evening.
It might depend on items that you are buying from them...

The delay may be with the publishers.
