You're in for a great read I picked up this book two weeks back and think I learnt more about the language in three days reading than I did in 3 months of studying! Thanks Joshua

See Cindy, now you've annoyed me. It was bad enough when your total number of posts eclipsed mine several weeks ago. But now you've taken my book. I must go now to plot my revenge.
On the plus side, at least I can go ahead and place the bookpool order which I've been saving since the beginning of the week, since I wasn't sure if I needed to order Josh's book or not.
Josh, thanks a lot for joining us here. Don't be a stranger!

WOW! Now that's a surprise!!! Friday the 13th must be either bad luck, or really good luck.
Can't wait to read it, gotta go make room on the bookshelf.
Yeeha!
