2012: May 9

If you've ever seen this book in its hardcover form, then you know it's a gnarly beast of a book, meant for downloading to an e-reader and pulling out without fear of wrist pain. Thirteen years ago, however, when this book was purchased at a reading/signing, the e- route was not an option. And so we've been lugging this unread tome through our various homes, packed and unpacked and placed in new piles of books to be read one day. I'm reading it now.
