You can choose the privacy settings for your proof copy. Just change the settings so your book is invisible (or whatever it actually said). As long as you don't try to sell any copies ordering a free proof shouldn't hurt you any.

You know what's cool? We have an extra hour in November because DST ends right on the 1st.

But not the frog?  :'(

'Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I think I'll go eat worms....' Not because I'm depressed, but just because that's what frogs happen to do. :P

Mmm. Worms.

...Actually, I think you were the first person I added; not sure how your name didn't make it on the list.

Poor Frog. She's NOT on the list.

Somehow, that alone makes me feel better. ;)

Hahaha. I'm here to help :P

...Oh man. I'm totally going to have to make some sort of "on the list" joke for my ... ahem... winter holiday forum name.

You'll notice I didn't name any specific holidays. That's because, while I'm as guilty of potty-mouth as the next person (err, probably a lot more guilty than many of the people on here) there are some lines in profane language that even I will not cross.

Edit: Though the holiday in question would, of course, involve an iconic character with a penchant for making dichotomous lists. And checking them more than once.

I added you... but everyone knows you hate me, so that probably makes you want to eat more worms ;)

I hate being PC. Just wish everyone a happy 'whatever-holiday-you-happen-to-be-celebrating.' I am not Jewish, but that does not mean I am opposed to having a happy hanukkah.  And I will be very disappointed if such a well placed joke does not come to light. ;)

I hate you? When did that happen? Not that I am opposed to hating people, but I like to know about it so I can use it for full affect. ;).

*Snorts* Oh, I wasn't trying to be politically correct. I think that naming certain holidays of the winter variety up is as bad as (worse than!) uttering certain four-letter words. :P

Carries unpleasant connotations, and all that ::)

Really? I never heard of anyone having a problem with it, other than for the PC silliness. Well, okay than. I will now consider myself educated. :)

You hate the holiday with 'an iconic character with a penchant for making dichotomous lists?' I'd be careful with that. You could get a bunch of ghosts or some really annoying whos coming after you. :P

I hate you for those, and I haven't even critiqued any of them. ;)
