If you want to order offline i KNOW that amazon has them in stock. Also, if you want it locally, just go to a Barnes and Nobel and ask them to order it for you; then after a few days you go pick it up from them.
Also, if you did order from the Emporium, expect to be patient! (but it seems you are very eager). Items (even a book) can take months just to ship from the emporium after you have placed an order. So, your best bet is either Amazon.com or Barnes and Nobel. Good luck and happy reading!
