    Pretty cool that the kids would record the books.

    Is Marin Ireland a good reader? As I'll probably listen rather than read it.

    I’m swapping between reading and listening. Gotta love whispersync. I’m hapoy with Marin’s narration. She’s doing a good job so far.

    I found her voice a little irritating. I've switched to just reading for now.

    Oh no . I ordered one the other day but it hasn't arrived yet. Poorly packaged, Dez?

    Yep. A 12x12" piece of bubble wrap tossed into a box with the book on top. I placed 2 orders - one for myself and another for a UK member. Both came the same way and in the same condition. *sigh*

    Nice. WTF with these bookstores?! You'd think out of anyone, they'd know the value of a book to a collector. Maybe I'm assuming too much or my expectations are too high. Thank God Water Street has their shit together. I'm going to fire off an email to Oblong requesting better packaging based on your experience, Dez. You sending yours back?

    Don't know yet. Problem is mine was just signed. The fellow member's was inscribed with more than his name. (He hasn't seen it, and it's not mine to share, so don't ask!) Mine would be easy to replace, his not so much.

    I got mine today. The packaging was somewhat primitive but the book was none the worse. I give them kudos for getting them mailed out so quickly as I didn't expect it for a while. Anyone who attended the Hudson Valley event would be somewhat dubious of their organizational skills as they set up the book distribution just outside the exit door creating an impassable jam. Nice people, but not great organizers.

    Oh no! So sorry that happened. I ordered a UK Owen signed copy from VJ Books and was considering canceling and getting one personalized from Oblong. Glad I didn't.

    I'm the UK member that Dez kindly ordered the book for. It's a shame about the damage in transit, but I think the dedication from Owen makes up for it. Pretty cool!

    Where is the actual discussion thread for this book? I looked in Cara Laughs and didn't see any. Surely it's okay to be discussing by now, right?
