New Official Guide (to be released Nov 1, 2012)

Postby EUCC » Sun Sep 30, 2012 6:24 pm

Just wondering who is ordering the new 25th b-d edition of the official guide. It's available for pre-order on Amazon. I apologize if there's already a thread for this. I own 2 of the previous guides, just wondering anyone else already has old guides and thinks it's worth it to get the new one for Christmas or something.

And I feel really, really old reading that AIO is 25 yrs old. I remember listening to The Shepherd and the Giant when it first aired on the radio on Saturday morning with one of my sisters.

I sure am getting the New Guide. *nods* I don't know if I'll be pre-ordering though, but I will bet getting it. And I own both of the older ones too.

Yeah, I figured I'd get it, too. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't alone in that. I'm getting one for a friend, too.

Does it have anything new and exciting or just added the new episodes to the ep guide?

From what I understand, it does have new trivia/behind the scenes info plus the new episodes...and of course, new pictures.

I'll probably get it. I don't have either of the previous guides, so it would be nice to have one.

That's an excellent question. I honestly hope that they did not just reprint the second guide, change the cover and just add the new episode information. I guess it's a good thing I'm not pre ordering. I will definitely check it out before I buy it.

I'm definitely planning on getting one as soon as they're available. There should be some new and updated content, plus I'm just one of those people who would want it even if there wasn't much new....but there will be. ;))

I own the other two editions, so this one will probably find its way into my collection. Eventually. And not because it has new content or not... just because it's Odyssey.

Ordering online can actually be cheaper. :) *nods*
For instance, if you were to buy an album in store, it would cost you around $24.99. But if you buy the album on...lets say, Christianbook, it would only cost you around $15.99.

Well, don't forget shipping. And if you have a coupon, it's cheaper in store.

I'm thinking you got free shipping somehow, EUCC?

I usually do order stuff online, but if I can get it cheaper in-store, I prefer that. I go for whatever is cheapest.

True that. But Christianbook doesn't charge all that much for shipping, so it is still cheaper than spending 24 dollars.

Yeah. that's the only exception I would say. If you have coupons to buy the items cheaper (than online) then go for it! \:D/
