Hi. I have the bestest publisher ever:

Don't rush it though - if you end up feeling that you need a bit more time, just let me know. I'd rather have a book you were completely happy with a bit late rather than one you had some niggling concerns about bang on time.

Yay! I mean, I want to get as much done before my Milton class starts, but the Digest is suffering badly and I'd really rather not shut it down for a total of four months entirely. The whole "Fifty-five days and counting until deadline" thing was starting to freak me out, and I feel better already for having taken a break, read a book (even a book that pissed me off), had a swim, etc.

To clarify: I wholeheartedly recommend the first 828 pages of The Crimson Petal and the White. If you can live with the book not having an ending, knock yourself out. Particularly if you're interested in the Victorian era, because the level of detail is amazing.

I think I'm going to go swim now. Whee!
