Afternoon to all

I did read the book on here, and I'd like to thank whoever did make it available on here. But I'd still like to have a copy of the book. They wouldn't be thinking of publishing a couple hundred thousand copies , I just don'understand why they don't , I guess they do have a reason, but I can wish.

Any hoot

Be well
