Mine finally showed up today! Have to try to fit in with class now. Can't wait to read it though.

As for why it was free, it was some sort of promotional deal through MSN, that's all I found.

I just thought of something, ronjohn. D'ya suppose that MSN scam MJ warned us about in another post could have had something to do with this promotion?

I haven't been on the receiving end of the scam myself. At least so far.

Just wondering.

here's MJ's warning

I guess anything is possible, but this seems unlikely. There was no request for a password. (And we actually got the books).

Besides, whenever someone sends a request to me asking me to confirm my password, I [sarcasm] always [/sarcasm] give it to them. I always use the same passwords for those accounts. So when they ask what it is, I send it back to them. It reads...

Passsword: Go_to_He**
