I was going to get a copy from the local bookshop
yesterday, partly to support them as I'm amazed that
they have managed to stay open a year in this town.
And also because in a cunning promotion they were
giving away a free DWJ book with each copy. However
they'd sold out (very pleasing as small bookshops here
have been complaining that they can't compete with
with the big chains who sell it below cost at about
half the regular retail price.) So I guess I'll pick
up a discount copy when I get a chance.
