Attention subscribers to the Tasty Book Club -- DELIVERY DELAY

Sorry to report that the title we selected was out of stock and reprinting in Canada. We have found a cache of them elsewhere and they're on their way. Unfortunately this means you will not receive your delectable parcel on Valentine's Day as we intended. Look for it at your door on Thursday, February 23. (We'll be notifying you individually about this delay.)

What did you think of Kevin Brockmeier's Illumination? Would you like to get together and talk about the books? Should we try that?

Please email Kristen H. (kristengh@wordsworthbooks.com) if you're interested and we'll see if we can get something off the ground.
