Excited about "Go Set a Watchman" by Harper Lee

If you are as bookish as I am, chances are you've heard about this (and even if you aren't bookish, since it's pretty big news!) new book.  Raised in the South, of course "To Kill a Mockingbird" was a book I read early and often.  As with any other book by an Alabama author, I studied it closely, being an aspiring author myself.  And now we have another fantastic work by Harper Lee, "Go Set a Watchman".  Seriously, I can't wait. 

In fact, I just found out I can pre-order the book and get something extra, so I'm extra excited!  Check this out.  Ol' Curiosities & Book Shoppe, a bookstore in Monroeville, Alabama (Harper Lee's hometown) is running a very special offer.  This description of the offer is from their website:

SPECIAL OFFER FOR THOSE WHO PRE-ORDER: To commemorate the special occasion of Harper Lee's new book Go Set a Watchman, we are going to be providing certificates of authenticity and embossing the title page of this hard-cover first batch of first editions we get here at Ol' Curiosities and Book Shoppe.
