My copy arrived yesterday, and it appears to have been "lifted" from the Portland Public Library. It has a bar code and everything....

It's very funny. Thank you for recommending it.

Not to worry, it's probably from the Title Wave Used Bookstore, part of the library system/Friends of the Library. They don't bother to remove the bar code and catalogue numbers.

Glad you like the book.
