Default Woohoo!

I just got my own Atlas of Pern! A paperback copy, but in great condition! I got it from Chrysalis over at the NKT, for a very reasonable price - $10 for the book, and another $10 for shipping, which I know is relatively low for something like this! I didn't expect to be able to get one for a while yet, but now it's MINE!!!

Congratulations! You'll have fun studying that.
I hope you have The Dragonlovers Guide too?
I'm reading that (again) now. There's all sorts of questions in it I'd like to discuss.
