something awesome

Chateau Steelypips has had better medium-durations-of-time, but here's something awesome—

Chad's next book, How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog, is officially out tomorrow (though it's been spotted in a couple B&Ns over the weekend) and it's getting great reviews—including a mention in the Washington Post! Woo, mainstream media!

(Now if only Colbert would call . . . )

Also, the first one is more popular than London call girls, which I find hilarious.

True story: Almost every time I mention Chad's books, my fiance says "How has he not gotten on Colbert yet?" It really does seem right up his alley!

I totally approve of this, but my ereader broke last week (it's an iRex reader and the company went bankrupt in 2009 so no hope of repairs). *wry g* So it's deadtree for me for the time being...still, good excuse to hit the bookstore this coming weekend.

Oh, no worries! You've had a lot on your mind lately and I don't expect people to keep track of my gadgets in any case. :-)

I bought a copy of Chad's first book for my father (who is an engineer by trade, but a physicist by education), and decided to continue the trend with this book.
