Look what arrived in the mail

My autographed copy of Redshirts by John Scalzi.  I got it because JS works out this deal  with local independent bookseller Jay and Mary’s Book Center, to offer signed and personalized books for gift-giving. 

I will admit I was slightly worried because Jay & Mary's Book Center requested that orders be placed via this archaic device called a telephone.  When I called my order in, Jay made me repeat my information twice.  Then he made me repeat it a third time because his "system" lost it.  I realize that a small scale independent bookseller like theirs doesn't have the infrastructure to have an online ordering system.  However, there has to be a better way to avoid mistaking the name of my street -- which i spelled as I gave it -- for Lawyer. 

it says: to my less successful
And it arrived in

Comments Encouraged! And the nice thing about this blog is that I rarely get spam so don't need to moderate the comments.

I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
