I have both of the previous ones (two copies of the 2008 edition actually), and I'll get this one too.

I got free shipping because I bought another item that made my total over 25 dollars so I got free super saver shipping from Amazon. Also, I know CA has sales tax but my state doesn't on Amazon purchases.

I own the previous 2 editions as well.

Well, other than tons of new content and updates within the book, the Guide will also feature new color photo pages... designed by me, so it's definitely worth the purchase if you know I was involved! :)

Instead of rehashing the first 50 albums all over again, wouldn't it make sense to just come out with an "Adventures in Odydessy Official Guide: Albums 50-56" book? Then it could maybe be 200 pages long instead of only 100 pages added from the second guide. Anyone new to AIO can just buy the previous guide for the first 50 albums. Now I'm going to have triplicates of the info from the first 25 or 30 albums. Just a suggestion.

I got an email yesterday saying they have shipped my book. I am sure others are getting it too, since it comes out TODAY.

I was in a Family Christian Store today and they did not have it, no surprise there knowing how awful FCS is about getting new books in. I just checked CBD and they have it!! I ordered my copy and just received the confirmation email, it is in stock and will ship tomorrow!! \:D/ So I will have it on Tuesday!!! :D Absolutely cannot wait!!! :mrgreen:

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


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.


It looks like it is mostly like that. They changed a few things for updates in the previous parts. They added the new albums, plus a tribute to Paul Helinger. It is very good.

I GOT IT in the mail today and I am soooooo excited. !!

I looked at the Table of Contents via CBD and it is a lot like the earlier guide. While I am a little disappointed I want to add it to my collection since I have the other two guides.

Aww, I hope your store gets it soon! I got mine in the mail a couple days ago - yay! \:D/ I had ordered from FOTF and they must have shipped quite promptly. I haven't had time to really read much yet, but as I flipped through, I was seeing lots of good stuff!

Well, I'll probably be ordering online now. Turns out Family Christian Stores doesn't even carry it yet. And my coupon is only good through the 12th. :(

I got mine via UPS over a week ago. I ordered it from CBD. You aren't missing much. All they did was change the cover and add the album information for albums 51 through 56. That's the only new information in the book.

Then you should enjoy it. I have the previous guides and was unaware that you didn't have them.
