Well, I am glad you guys got your books - especially since I am planning to read John's copy when he is through with it - but I just went to Amazon.com to look for something else and was told
"our Books, Music, Video, Toys, and Electronics stores are closed temporarily.
We expect to be back soon. If you would like to be notified when we reopen, please leave your e-mail address below and we will be happy to let you know. "
I'd say it is more than a temporary glitch if they post that elaborate a notice.
Anybody know what gives?
