USA here we come!

Posted by Jean-Baptiste Monge (Creator)

Dear American Followers!

This is your turn to be happy, we started yesterday the postage. We are really super super glad!! And I know that you will be too!

We have no possibility to check if your address has been updated recently on backerkit so please accept our apologies if you receive an email from us to confirm your address and phone number.

Also make sure there is a phone number, we won't call you but the delivery guy might!

On Backerkit, once we have seen your update by email / comments, we finalize your address and lock it and then we shift it to shipped once it is done.

We have more than 500 parcels to send. We won't be able to send them all in one only batch. Give us some more time to make it right for you all my friends! 

PLEASE COMMENT HERE and just the USA addresses, please, to say that your address and phone are up to date! We might send you private message if have a doubt or if we just don't see your comment. Better check twice than none!

Update Canada: 

The pallet has reached the facility of Toronto, they will start the delivery on Monday. That's awesome!

Update Rest of the World

We are more than aware that it is very very long but, again, we are just the 2 of us to complete the task. We don't have a volunteer team to help us doing so. Be sure that we think about all of you everyday as our living room and garage are filled with your books  guys! The good news is, as you see, the deliveries have started at last and we are trying to make everything right for everyone, adjusting all the time with our daily duties. We try to give news as much as we can without harassing you and when we have news to share.  When time will come to start your deliveries, it will be for us a great joy and relief to know that our task will be over soon and you will be at last happy!

Why are you the last to be handled: Because we chose first to handle Canada and USA because it was easier for us and then, exportations rules and custom are very picky and demanding, we have to prepare the pallets carefully to send them in France and then it will be dispatched from there to you. It is not a choice that has been simple for us to take but it is really much safer like this.

Please accept again our deep and sincere regard, your time will come and we can't wait for it too!

USA deliveries have started!

      Hi, I'm one of the US backers, I didn't realize until this last month that there was an update regarding our books asking to confirm addresses. I moved to a new place this month and updated my backerkit info with it around June 7th. Is there a way to check what the status of my book is? I'm so sorry about any inconveniences this might bring; I really should have been on top if this more.

    2. Jennifer Kern on

      I am so sorry, somehow I missed this post. But my information is all correct and I did confirm also with backerkit.

      Looking forward to getting this soon!
      Thank you,
      Jennifer Kern

      Hey JB! Not sure if I needed to comment here, but my address is also correct and ready to go. Hope all is well in the frozen tundra! Cheers!

      My address is incorrect, and I’m moving in the middle of February. Should I PM you my new address when I move?

      Hello, I'm backer #251 (if that helps), and my shipping info is still correct. Sorry I took so long to respond, I overlooked this update. Thanks for the love and care you've put into this project.

    7. Jean-Baptiste Monge Creator on

      Big thank you for your time and care my friends!
      Trinna, Nicole, Erin and Jack: You'll be in the next shipments :D
      Dustin your book is about to leave!
      PLEASE USA: Read this and update your info and come back here or PM us to say everything is OK. We can't know if the address we read are still up to date.
      So we prefer to check several time to not send to wrong addresses.
      you have waited already so much, we don't want you to live this.
      We can't wait to read you!

    11. Erin Ratelle

      Backer #731. My address isn't locked in BackerKit yet so I assume I was on the unconfirmed list, but that address is correct. I must have missed this update, and any email asking for confirmation. Glad I checked in. :)

      Sandra Waugh on

      Jean-Baptiste, I am checking to see if you have mailed to all of the United States backers, or if you are still mailing in batches to us, I am backer 1,088 and I would like to know if my book has been mailed out. I see that Americans all around the US are posting that they have received their book and the dates on the posts are from over a month ago. So I am concerned that something has gone awry with my book.

I live in WA state and still haven’t received my book yet! :( And I’m moving in a few weeks so I’m not sure how to best proceed with me getting the book.
