    In the course of cleaning the garage this day, I found an unopened carton of Bears' Guides, current (15th) edition. In the interest of recycling, I am happy to send one to each of the first 12 people who ask, and send me postage and a label.

    Here's the drill:
    1. Post a note here, so people can keep track of how many are left of the 12.
    2. If you are in the first 12, mail me a $3.85 priority mail stamp (the actual stamp, not cash, not a check) and a gummed label with your name and address. Send to P O Box 1575, El Cerrito, CA 94530.
    3. I shall put the book in a priority mail envelope, affix stamp and label, and mail it (US only).

    Han: Will they be signed I have one, but would send the package and label for the signature.

    John: No need to do this. If you would like a signature (not on a check), send me a stamped self-addressed envelope, and I'll be glad to. Then you can glue it in your book, and increase its value at the yard sale by at least fifty cents.

    Okay, consider this a note posted... number 7, out of 12, by my count -- that is, if Han's post counts as one; if not, then I'm number 6 out of 12.

    I've sent you a private email regarding the details.

    Even though I already have a copy of Bears' Guide 15, I would love a copy (especially if I could get it signed from the Author) and will donate my current copy to our library.

    I'd definately love a signed copy

    I have a 2000 copy of College Degrees by Mail & Internet but I wouldn't mind a newer version right from the author. If there are still copies left, count me in please John. :)

    I'd like one! By my count, I'm number 10.

    I'll get my priority mail stamp out today, but it may take a couple days longer as I'm at an APO address.
