Came home to find a package from Amazon.com addressed to me which was a surprise as I hadn’t ordered anything recently. Or at least I couldn’t remember having ordered anything recently. Got inside and opened it up to find a shiny new copy of The Elegant Universe : Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory by Brian Greene inside purchased for me off of my Wishlist. Needless to say I was quite pleasantly surprised, though a little puzzled. The billing address was someone out of Portland whose name I shall withhold as I’m not sure if they want it known, but beyond that there was no message or explanation as to why I was the beneficiary of this generosity.
Just the same I am most appreciative as this was one of the books I spent no small amount of time debating over during my small book buying spree I went on a little while back. This one put me over my spending limit at the time so I reluctantly put it back. So allow me to offer my most sincere thanks to the person who purchased this book for me and I promise to write something up on it once I make my way through it.
