And Feliz Navidad to me from Spain (again)!

Just received a copy of my Spanish "Jin shei" hardcover. With a new dust jacket. This time, it says "more than 30 000 books sold".

So far, the story appears to be that they published the book in June 2006, reprinted it in September (the "more than 20 000 sold" edition) which means that they sold 20 000 hardcover copies in three months, and now, two months after THAT reprint, here comes a new one with another 10 000 having found homes.

I'm astonished, delighted, a little awed. Merry Christmas to me! And once again - muchas gracias, Espana!
