    I am so sad, this book looked good so I went to the store to see if I can find it, and no luck. The book store here sucks, they hardly had any of her books. I am now currently trying to talk my mother into going to the city, then I can go too and there are two big book stores there that might have it. I would go alone but I am a terrible driver when there are lots of people around.

    *crosses fingers that I can join in*

    An amazon gift certificate that you can't use online That sucks. Hopefully you can find a copy of the book. Good luck.

    I just wanted to say that I won't be able to join in on this one. I'm barely finding the time to read Someplace to be Flying. I will never work full time in retail during the holidays again!

    I too went to several bookstores and could not find this book. I even tried my local library, which I am sorry to say is very very small... next I shall try an inter library loan.

    I reserved it from my Main Library and picked it up today! I am only thirty pages in but I am enjoying it very much:-). Terry reminds me a little of Douglas Adams. I will post if I reccomend it when I am done(hopefully tonight). I am sorry for those who are unable to find it or are to busy to read it.

    Yes it was a great book! Death was one of my favorite characters, but the death of mice/rodents/etc. was adorable. Wait death adorable? That's not right....

    I am still waiting for my library to get a copy of this... Christmas time is not a good time to ask them to get books (and as it turns out people usually do not return the books they have borrowed on time at this time of the year).

    The local book store does not have even one single copy of TP books either!

    I have it
    I only have to re-read it to see whether it is great or merely good.
    I know Christmas has passed, but what can I do? I was away for the holidays... so I'll try to catch up now.
