Of course, I have no need for the books, so I’ll give them away! There
are only a couple of copies, so in order to be fair, I’ll give them to the
first people to respond in this thread. When you reply, say “I read the newsletter,

they are gone, they are gone. There are only a couple, so post now if you
are interested!

Until next week…
