Word is that the server was down for a bit yesterday - unusual as they're generally very dependable. I didn't tell Captain Jaclyn that it was your fault!

I'm super happy that so many people are so eager, for sure. I'm also glad I'm not Lt. Brandon who's in charge of the shipping database!

What do folks think? Would love to see some photos. I'm not going for this one, but excited for those who are into it. (I would never read it!)

MINE LOOKS AWESOME!!!!!

What I need is some sort of lit shelf to place it on. Then surround it with security protocols and 24 hour security surveillance.

My copy is reportedly on my front door step. I hope it doesn't rain on it.

Can I also add, GREATEST SHIPPING BOX EVER!!!!! It is like the case came in its own little cardboard case - inside a standard shipping box. Unfortunately mine got a bit banged up, but that is what was supposed to happen instead of my slip case and the books themselves getting banged up so I don't mind.
