By the way, speaking of books, I've been remiss not to mention that Jeff Schewe's new book, The Digital Print: Preparing Images in Lightroom and Photoshop for Printing, is in stock and shipping from Amazon. I haven't seen it yet (I've just requested a PDF review copy), but I know that Jeff's book The Digital Negative was very popular, and this is that book's companion volume.
It's also available for Kindle, but I'd probably only advise buying that version if you read your Kindle books on one of the larger iPads (or any good tablet). Actual Kindles are more for verbal books and don't do terribly well with illustrations.
A book that I just received for review is The Sony Alpha NEX-6: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide, despite my spotty history with, and ambivalence about, camera guidebooks. At least it will give me an excuse for some camera fondling*!
*I gotta get out of the house more.

Featured Comments from:
John Krumm: "Thanks for the notice. I just added a bit to Zander's next tuition payment and ordered the book. I've come to enjoy printing almost as much as taking photographs, sometimes more, and I'm ready to dive into something like this...."
Mike replies: We never talk about this, but I've known a number of people over the years who enjoy printing pictures more than taking pictures.
Carson Harding: "The print is the thing, so I photograph in order have material to print. But this doesn't seem to be common. Buying and chatting about paper at the camera store, there was an awkward pause when I mentioned that my printer was my favourite piece of photographic equipment."
