Back in May I had a contest to determine who would receive my 12-volume Feasting on the Word commentary, since I was planning to switch to the electronic version. (You can read about that here and here.)
This is just a short update to say that last week I finally got all the books located, packed up and shipped to Catherine in Texas. It only cost about $20 to send them via media mail, and I’ll be interested to see how long they take to get there. I say this to encourage people who are thinking about paying it forward—it’s fun, cheap and easy. (Seriously, I hadn’t been in a post office in ages. It was actually kinda pleasant—the line went fast and there were all kinds of goofy people there, from the old gentleman waiting in line to buy two twenty-cent stamps to the businessman who wanted to know how to apply for a passport.)
Another note—there was some question about what the CD-ROM version would be like, and concern that it might not be all that user-friendly. So I decided to get the books on Kindle instead, for the low price of $10 apiece. Still waiting for year C to come out on Kindle, but I assume it will. This format is also cheaper than the CD-ROM.
