Isn't it a great program? I just posted my *first* review and requested my second book.

I'll be interested to here Michael's thoughts in a few months on how he views the 'success' of this new marketing venture.

Thanks so much! I just signed up to do this since I am always reading stacks of books anyway. I'm excited about this opportunity. Thanks again.
