This book arrived at my house on Good Friday afternoon, sent to me from Florida(!!!) by a German friend who has had this book @ his house for over a year, waiting for me to get to Germany. I promised to send this back to Katopua back in Germany so she could pass it on to someone else. Well, I'm going to read it over the weekend and try to mail it to her next Monday. Sorry it took so long to get this book in my hands!
