Imponderables


(ok, not so much of an imponderable as a WHA??? but I don't have that category)

Yesterday I pre-ordered the fifth (and possibly final) book in the Percy Jackson series. As I was finalizing the sale, Amazon let me know that
This item might not arrive by Dec. 25. If you want it before that date, upgrade your shipping options
(I'm paraphrasing slightly).

Here's the thing: the book isn't due to be released until May 8. I know it's an auto-generated message but still... do you think I could get it before Christmas if I upgraded to Next Day service?
