Back in May I had a contest to determine who would receive my 12-volume Feasting on the Word commentary, since I was planning to switch to the electronic version. (You can read about that here and here.) This is just a short update to say that last week I finally got all the books located, packed up and shipped to Catherine in Texas. It only cost about $20 to send them via media mail, and I'll be interested to see how long they take to get there. I say this to encourage people who are thinking about paying it forward---it's fun, cheap and easy. (Seriously, I hadn't been in a post office in ages. It was actually kinda pleasant---the line went fast and there were all kinds of goofy people there, from the old gentleman waiting in line to buy two twenty-cent stamps to the businessman who wanted to know how to apply for a passport.)
Another note---there was some question about what the CD-ROM version would be like, and concern that it might not be all that user-friendly. So I decided to get the books on Kindle instead, for the low price of $10 apiece. Still waiting for year C to come out on Kindle, but I assume it will. This format is also cheaper than the CD-ROM.
