A pre-order or backorder is an order placed while a book is in press or while a book is in the process of being reprinted.
If you place an order for a book in press, you may not receive the book for several months. (You can check a book’s availability date by finding its page in the online store.)
If you have chosen to pay for the book by credit card or with a purchase order, your account won’t be charged until we ship the book.
