  1. Can I find a copy of this at my local bookstore? I am ordering at least 10 for Christmas gifts.

  2. There are copies at our local Barnes & Noble, and it looks like Auntie’s has copies.

    Thanks very much for your multiple purchases. At the rate it’s going, there will be hundreds of copies sold just to my friends and family.
