Hi, Jason:

Congratulations on what sounds like a very successful and enjoyable tour.

I went ahead and ordered the book via my local Border's the next day, figuring that perhaps if I ordered it it might get several other copies in their stock as well. As it turned out, that was indeed the I have my copy and I'm happy, and I've ensured that several other folks soon will be. Would they have eventually ordered it for their stock at some point in the future? Perhaps (though initial signs were discouraging). But this hurried the process a bit. ;-) Incidentally, I also visited my local B&N and they did indeed have two or three in stock.

Sorry I didn't elaborate. No, they hadn't yet carried it in stock (puzzled, I confirmed that w/ the clerk) and had no store orders in place to do so. Hence the above.

Can't wait to get started on it!
