I'm currently reading your book and all I can say is that I'm more than happy to have it on my bookshelf. It's amazing all you can do with Lucene and how easy it is to integrate the whole stuff into an existing application
Thanks to JavaRanch for hosting Otis and I and allowing us to talk about a topic we love, Lucene!
I regret that I cannot continually tune in to this forum as I'm already over-extended in e-mail forums. I'm very active on the lucene-user e-mail list and am always an e-mail click away (from the lucenebook.com site). Tune in to the site to stay up-to-date with the fun things Otis and I are doing with the site itself and book updates, errata, and announcements.
