As if this whole “Steve Jobs” biography thing couldn’t get more drawn out and dramatic, users — including Jeff Jarvis and Jason Kottke – are reporting early deliveries of Walter Isaacson’s highly anticipated book, oddly enough through pre-orders on the Amazon Kindle.

The analog version of the 656 page book should be officially available in bookstores across the US tomorrow.
