    Haven't read the book yet, but I have to vent about the delivery

    Haven't read the book yet, but I have to vent about the delivery.
    This book had to travel from Monroe Township, NJ to my home in western PA - a distance of about 330 miles; or about 6-7 hrs drive.

    The book left NJ on June 15th and arrived in Kentucky - KENTUCKY! - the same day.
    There it sat - IN KENTUCKY - until June 18th, at which time it was placed on the back of a blind donkey for its journey to the far away land of PA, where it arrived on June 21st.

    Perhaps delivery wouldn't take six days (even with the blind donkey) if the book hadn't have spent FOUR DAYS IN KENTUCKY.

    I will be back to review the book after I've checked it out, but at the moment this is looking like my last B&N purchase.

    I'm giving the book three stars right now, simply because I'm required to give a rating... hopefully I can change it, if appropriate, after reading the book.
