    For me, it is a combo of all three. It isn't a book that I must own. It would be more of an impulse buy to finally give somethin by Vonnegut a try. While the price-point isn't as high as other recent Suntup AGEs, I do find it a little high for this title, especially considering the numerous versions already on the market, some of them being quite nice and limited in their own right. Also doesn't help that it looks like a recession may be headed our way which is making me a bit skittish on buying books that I don't consider must-own or especially interesting.

    I like the novel, but already have several nice copies. It's a bit too pricey to justify another copy, especially since it'll probably go down a bit on the secondary market. :-/

    Plus I just bought the Gormenghast set from Folio, so my wallet hurts...

    Sales seems to have levelled off around 300 copies, so plenty of time for second and third thoughts.

    That or The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin have been the guesses that I have seen most frequently. Is it horrible that I haven't read anything by Vonnegut yet? Feel like I have heard the name my whole life but have never gotten around to actually reading anything by him. Same for Le Guinn. I know that each of these books are considered seminal works in their fields which does make me want to give them a try at some point. Just not sure if Suntup is the avenue I will take to remedy that. Perhaps someone will be able to sway me or there will be something in tomorrow's announcement that will push me toward the purchase.

    Paul responded that the site had an issue. It was not supposed to offer Media Mail and he was surprised to see the orders start coming in with Media Mail. He shipped them First Class and is considering it a discount to the customers and not wanting payment for the difference.
    I will have mine in hands today and may get some photos up this weekend.

    I have shipping information and they actually shipped it first class. As first class is what I would have selected had I been paying attention I have emailed Suntup offering to pay the difference.
