Look what was waiting for me after a miserable day at the office...Tim Shorts' Starter Adventures!!
I took advantage of the holiday sales over at Lulu to get my copy. I haven't even opened it yet; wanted to show it off too much first. From all indications, though, it's a great book. Knowing Tim's abilities and his other works, I have no doubt that I'll find great use in this.
And actually, my reaction when I saw the Lulu box was close to this (although the sound and video quality on the clip are crap):
**EDIT: It sometimes helps to add the image when you type: "Look what I got!" Sigh.**
