Looking forward to seeing mine when I get home. Really there is an advert in it!? It's a book not a magazine! That is terrible. I hope Nintendo got enough money for it because that is pretty disgusting. I hope this trend doesn't continue in any vain. I don't have much against adverts even though I don't like them. But when they are forced on you after you own the item its pretty disgraceful. I hope I can rip the page out.

The UK IS an island full of CoD-loving, Fifa worshipping, Sims-playing morons, so for Zelda to be that high on the list is quite good.

I just checked the bestsellers in books section myself and it's shot up to No. 5! http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/bestsellers/books/ref=sv_b_2

Also, the asking price has gone up a bit.

Meanwhile in the US, it looks like the Hyrule Historia is more popular than The Great Gatsby (y'know, that famous book by that bloke wot has that wife wot the series is named after).

loving it so far, fun reading all the little notes on the artwork, a generally wonderful book.

also to dark nemesis I dont think there are any adverts in it, unless you count the bit which tells you what 25th anniversary stuff is around. was adamatsu referring to the advert on the onm site?

Seems I'm the only one here who hasn't got/pre-ordered it yet!

If it's actually that good, though, thepokekid78 may have to dip into his vast Youtube profit and make an investment...
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

I just ordered mine, but I'll be honest... that slow cooker recipe book is pretty enticing! Just bought a 5.5 litre slow cooker and I'll can't find enough things to put in it! It's a food black hole!!

It's #3 now! Although it's kinda ironic how #1 and #2 are dieting books. :lol:
