International shipping costs are almost a deal killer.

Now I see why you went the e-Book way. Geeks already have their faces 
screen-burned so what's the diff. The e-book business has pretty much 
tanked. People want to have something to hold in their hands that is 
not screen related. Still these books of yours are part of the reason 
that some would consider using Revolution in the first place. Keep up 
the great work, and thanks.
