    It’s on my wish list! I’ve come back to the original post several times so this is a great way to have in on the computer. Just to let you know, on amazon right now costs 2.99 usd.

    @donaji – are you looking at I am looking at it right now and it’s $0.99. – I think it’s possible that if you’re in a geographic area that they consider to be “international,” they automatically adjust the price / add on some VAT or other tax. But I set the price at USD$0.99

    Love this, genius idea. Just downloaded the e-book! Now I won’t feel like such a doofus standing at the counter hoping they’ll just take pity on me and give me something caffeinated to drink.

    Good one – much needed by many. I hope you point out that whatever you order, do it quickly and decisively or you will find yourself standing there for hours! And don’t order a latte in Italy….unless you are jonesing for a glass of milk!
