Sadly, my efforts to get one myself were thwarted in no small part because Ray decided to do the book drop a day early. So the carefully prepared book-seeking machine that is my readership was unable to do my bidding. Well, poop!
But then, when I thought all hope was lost, came socygirl with the news that she had obtained a copy! And, even better, she was willing to send it to me. We worked out a means for relaying said volume anonymously, and then I settled in for the wait. And so, you can probably guess what I found waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday:
You have no idea how pleased I am right now, especially given how very far this book had to travel in order to get to me. And so please give socygirl a round of applause for managing the damn near impossible.
And socygirl: I totally owe you!
