Holy cow, that's a long table of contents! Looking forward to reading it though- I'm going to check in at a local independant bookstore to see if they're getting it/will order it.

I want my book NOW, darn it! I'm so excited. Reading the table of contents just makes me even more on-the-edge-of-my-seat eager. At first I was going to pick out and tell you all the parts I'm most excited for, but then I decided there were too many. Is it weird that I'm this worked up over a book? I don't think so.

It's nice, actually, that people are so excited.

So, *I* certainly don't think it's weird, but then, I've an obvious bias. [Smile]

I got my book on Wednesday, and read it while on the bus. I got such funny looks when I started giggling at some of the comments and such, and even funnier looks when people saw me grinning over the dedication.

Maybe we need to make some sort of handout to pass over for when folks are reading this in public? [Razz]

LOL That would be amazing and hilarious!

I did leave my copy at my apartment for the summer -- one of my friends is coming back in June(I don't go back til August) and really needs to read it. It feels so great to have a reference book on hand now!
