The version I link to there is perfect bound, which has a nice spine, so it looks good on a bookshelf, or it stacks well in a pile of books. However, some people might prefer a spiral binding, so that it lays more flat during solving. After lunch, I'll set up a project like that at no extra charge.
Buy one for each puzzle solver on your holiday list!
As an aside - once I sell 50 copies of either edition, I'll invest in an ISBN number, which gets me in the door to talk to Amazon and BN.com so I can get listed there, as well. So, buy a bunch of copies!
ETA: I've got one report already that the downloadable PDF version, while a bargain at $4, seems to be coming down corrupt. If you've paid for a downloadable version and are having trouble, contact me, and I'll hook you up with a better version of the file.
ETA, part 2: Ok, so I've set up a spiral bound project here
. I suspect it's good, and if you're anxious for a puzzle book that stays open, you might consider getting a copy of it. HOWEVER
