No, that would be me. Funny thing, Amazon sent me a message saying that the
other two items in the order were being delayed, but not Conrad--and yet it
hasn't shipped yet. My account even says it will be shipped separately...on
But that's all right, because I have other things I must read:
_Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell_ (halfway through)
_The Witch in the Well_ (finally)
_The Fairy Godmother_ (for reading group on Thursday, which I am hosting)
and if I can get it, _Venus in Copper_ because I am hooked on the Falco
series after only two books. Whoever runs the library database, in his or
her infinite wisdom, has left the entry for _Venus in Copper_ despite its
having zero available copies. This number is actually recorded on the
record that you find when you search for it. I am told they do this so that
when they replace the book, they don't have to re-enter the entire record,
but do we really need to be taunted about books we can't get?

This is an excellent and perfectly reasonable justification. Pity I don't
have any like it.
