    *Sigh* I wish shipping wasn't such a ridiculous expense, those UK editions end up kicking my Canadian ass... our shit dollar isn't helping matters much either.

    Audible has listed the audio running time at 19 hours, which puts it at about the same length as Lisey's Story and The Outsider.

    (Although that's a suspiciously round number that probably indicates it's an estimate. I doubt if the audio has been recorded yet)

    Looking at the American cover, it's really easy to see this being connected to the Dark Tower. I know it's wishful thinking, but it's the year of 19 damnit! I'll take anything!

    I have ordered 3 extra of the Waterstones Limited version. First 3 people to PM me can have them shipped direct from me.

    Im not going to be able to do my usual quota of UK books this time i'm afraid - sorry.

    As a UK trade edition collector, I must say it’s a bit exasperating. It was fun when there was just a WHSmith and/or Waterstones variant to collect, but when there are nine or ten variants it gets a bit tiresome.

    Collecting them is fun, but it does seem like Hodder is fleecing is at this point.

    Wait, are there SIX variants of the endpapers???

    Lurking inside the cover of the first UK hardback print run of The Institute you’ll find one of four beautiful illustrations inspired by scenes from the novel.

    If you’re ordering online the one you receive will be random, or you can head to your local bookstore and seek out your favourite.

    Anyone who pre-orders a copy will receive a special endpaper.

    And that's not all. . .

    The Waterstones Special Edition

    This very special limited edition is exclusive to Waterstones. It has its own unique endpaper design as well as sprayed edges.
    I wonder if all preorders get unique endpapers?

    ETA: oh never mind. “Special endpapers” may refer to just one of the four pictorial endpapers described above. As opposed to the usual blank endpapers that later printings will presumably have.
