So I got the book this week which is dyno awesome! Here's the cool thing I noticed...when I'm thumbing through the pages I get like a contact high....the book smells like a freshly painted room! Anyone else notice this? Maybe it's paperback only or maybe it's just me.[/img]

Oops, looks like I messed up the format. Guess I should stop reading.

Yeah, I have the hardback version and it definately smells like paint.  It's probably the ink.

Nobody has ever mentioned the quality of the paper though.  It's very thick, strong, kind of like card stock if you're familar with that.  There are times I open it just to admire the paper.  No, it's not a fetish, I just really admire their choice of paper.  It makes the book all that more impressive!

I wish I could same the same for the cover & binding.  I worry that it will start to fall apart if I look at it too often.

Is anybody able to compare the quality of the hardback with the paperback?  I guess you'd need to either have both versions of the book or know someone with the version you don't have and look at them side by side.

I'll tell you though, $60, at the show, almost killed me.
There's a lot of things blamed on me that never happened.  But then, there's a lot of things that I did that I never got caught at.
