Looking forward to reading this one. I just put it up in my Amazon UK wishlist. My boyfriend says reading this will officially make me a geek.. Oh well... A very very cool geek I say!

Well I will have to go with Jasmine on this one about the geek thing :) This looks like an interesting read - hoping to see if it available in the local library. If not I might have to check out Amazon too!
