    LOL. No judgment here. Maybe me, you and Martin can start up a support group of some kind!

I always hear how big of an impact it made and what a phenomena it was...and I'm over in my corner completely oblivious.
    The Rising was at least on my radar. I have not read it yet but I am not oblivious when it is mentioned.

    When the US publisher released the book in America they thought the title was too long and changed it to ‘Let Me In’. The only English-language hardcover with the full title was the UK edition which has since gone out of print. (You’d think with the success of the film that there’d be demand for a reprint but both publishers told me they have no plans.)

    So unless you get lucky you’re looking at expensive prices to get a proper hardcover release for this book. The Suntup AGE is cheaper than the prices on Abesbooks and only slightly more expensive than what the sellers on Amazon have it at.

    Thanks for the congrats everyone. And I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up but apparently six of the eleven winners have yet to accept their rewards and theirs will be redistributed if they don’t order by this afternoon.
    Interesting. Thanks.

    Yes. And I will say that if some of my friends are not among those six, then I'm hoping that Paul has to go down the list and pick those in this forum who've missed out. There's still hope!

    Sorry to those who missed out. I was hoping for some more celebrations! A number of people I was rooting for are in this forum.

    But as CyberGostface stated, apparently SIX of the 11 winners have not purchased the book! Please check your spam folders and your trash folders (what if you accidentally deleted it?!). I'd hate to see someone lose out twice.

    I’m sure those who got one will cherish it. I’ll settle for that gift edition.

    The good thing is that the one person who should get one, did. I mean, just look at CyberGhostface’s avatar!
    So I have to ask. Does his avatar have anything to do with this story?
