I know the book financially benefits RRP; however, does anyone know if the purchase technically qualifies as an IRS "tax-deductible" contribution to a non-profit? ??? [just want to know if I should save receipt, ha!]

I emailed the link to the book to both my son and my daughter this morning, hinting (rather loudly) that it would make a wonderful Christmas gift for their mother.  But, if they have other ideas I'll have no problem purchasing this book for myself.  Can't wait to see it!

We hope that everyone enjoys the book as much as we enjoyed making it! I think you will be pleased with the photo selection. Much time and thought went into these selections. I want to thank the team for all their hard work and dedication to making a quality book for fans to enjoy. It was an honor being involved with this project and this fine group of individuals. Thanks so much, everyone.

Cynthia

I received an email from Blurb said they thought I should be able to see the ordering info now, but I still can't, not sure how I will order, may have to do some tweaking on my computer  :P. My husband thinks it is a good deal also, so hopefully they will have these for awhile and that  I can still get one for Christmas.  :) Wish I could order by phone but they didn't get me a number so maybe can't do that.

This takes you directly to the preview page.  Sometimes it takes a bit to load.  On the bottom right of the preview pane is the button for buying and it should take you to that page.  Good luck!  Oh, how's your Adobe flash player?  This shows in that format.

Good morning, Char, Cynthia, Darlene and Sherri!

Congratulations on the launching of your book.  I wish you all the best.

From my experience with those contacting me about the "Three Little Eagles...." book, Decorah eagle fans are exceptionally nice people.  Whew!---it's been quite a week for me. Exciting, rewarding and fun. I look forward to "meeting" more interesting people on the phone and through emails, and know that you will enjoy the contacts, too.
