Hey Byron. How did the book come, UPS or Snail Mail. Just so I know who to watch for.
Thanks

Kinda wondering,...How do the new BYB's compare to the origional yellow cover printing in terms of paper feel and more importantly image quality. About the same or are there some differences?

Probably not Steve since most everyone I have talked to or read about ordered nultiple copies of a limited run book. I suppose they think it is either an investment or perphaps they want one for every bathroom in their homes I have no idea. I do know I sent a check for ONE but I think I sent it too late and will probably get it back

I'm a procrastinationist! I need to order another because my old one is falling to pieces. I tried to find the ad to get the order info but can't find it. Can anyone pass the order information along for the BYB?

THANKS!

Um, guys, I just subscribed to GEM the other day so I don't have the ad. Do you just send a cheque to this address or what?

Hey, Joe, don't worry. I'm pretty sure after this run is sold out you will be seeing some of those mulitiple copies on eBay with a reserve at least twice what they were bought for. Care to make a bet? David.

I'm in the process of beginning a move to Iowa and the whole job search thing caused me to hold off sending my check. I start my new job on Sept. 9th and I will place my check in the mail as soon as I get established out there. Hopefully, there'll be some left! Any good shows or clubs around Pella, IA other than the Mt. Pleasant show?

I ordered mine on July 5th. The check has not been cashed yet. I do hope to receive it soon. Are the orders being processed according to order date, perhaps? Al Wait
