Default B&N shipping leaves me wanting

Still don't have my tablet. I took advantage of the $25 MC credit which meant I had to have the device delivered even though I bought it via phone in a B&N with good stock (86th St NYC). No pick up in store available. The tablet finally shipped 2 days later than the published ship date from the B&N warehouse which is ~65mi from my home. I know this because it's less than a mile from my parents place in Jamesburg NJ. Now it's floating around a distro company named Argix, eventually ending up in the USPS (hopefully!). Best guess now is probably Tues or Wed. Maybe I've been spoiled by Amazon, Newegg, Zappos, etc, but even with "free shipping" I expect something that's warehoused less than a 100 mi from my doorstep to take a couple of days max, not weeks!

Word to the wise, unless there's a over riding reason buy in store!

I will be headed to the store some time in the next week to go pick mine up so no waiting for it. But I am currently waiting on my large 6gig ebook collection to get transferred to Calibre as its taking forever. I just hope its done by tomorrow.

You know what really hurts? My neighbor ordered a Fire on Wednesday afternoon and received it Thursday morning. OTH, he's not that impressed with it and is leaning towards returning it. We'll wait to have a side by side with my Tablet should it ever arrive.

As for Calibre. I have a somewhat larger book collection than you and it didn't take very long to import, maybe an hour? That was using a 2 year old dual core laptop too. Are you changing format while importing? Format change like .mobi to .epub can take a while for 1 book, much less thousands.

All my books are sitting on a external HDD I am also running a Intel Pentium dualcore e2180 with 3gigs of ram and all I did in calibre was go to add books and hit the their option since my books are foldered by author and I had a bunch of different ones

I wonder if it has something to do with the external hd? The rest of our hardware is more similar than different.

could be considering the HDD is a usb 2.0 device. Ok this dealing with 100 books at a time with calibre is starting to bug me considering I have massive collection of over 8900 books and I am trying to get metadata and covers for them

I know this is probably too late, but have you tried copying everything to the internal drive? I have close to 20K books and the import experience was a bit slow, but not anywhere near what you're dealing with. Good luck!

That's probably the problem. Low disk space causes a host of problems, often without any notification.
