    You simply have to get rid of some of those bulky but less valuable things that take up too much space.

    Are you married with children by chance?

    I didn't quite know how hefty this book is, until it arrived.

    I'm going to order that right now. Only question is, where is it best to order it from?

    Lulu gives the author the bigger royalty, which gets ploughed back into research.

    Just arrived, this doorstop of a book. It'll take some time to get stuck into.

    That is a LONG awaited sequel to volume 1, is it not?

    And the longest book title on record?

    Kind regards, always,

    I think that is more of a refusal to pick a title. :D "Brevity and Battleaxe" would be a title...

    Just a ten-minute browse on eBay while I'm waiting for the train...

    "You have received an offer!"

    Oh, no...

    That it is.
    Next book is on Crusader. I expect to be in my 80's by then.

    What does a doorstop of a book like that cost?

    Books | Armour Publishing

    It's 90 pounds so with the exchange rate to CDN dollars plus shipping it wasn't cheap.
    The huge time between releases allows me time to save up!
