As the vast majority of you have pointed out, the cover for New Moon has been released and you can view it over at Amazon.com. I would like to make it clear that the release date listed at Amazon is not an official confirmed date. I spoke with Stephenie about it and the book is not set to be released until October. Now, consider that this release isn’t going to be something like you might be used to with the Harry Potter books. Some bookstores will have them out on shelves before others. There is no midnight opening and selling of the books. So it is possible that Amazon might start shipping the books out in September, but don’t hold your breath. I think the important thing here is that we can all ohh and ahh over the picture and let the discussion begin over how well you like or dislike what you see.
