    Strange site that doesn’t (apparently) offer a way to purchase the merchandise they are advertising. Too bad.

    I can’t hold actual books due to my crippled hands. This book is available through Amazon, but only in hardback by preorder. I guess I’ll have to wait until it’s available for Kindle. Luckily, my favorite author always provides electronic versions of her books when she publishes. I wish everyone did.
