Lightbulb Free book!

We have stumbled upon an extra copy of "The Book".

Our initial thoughts were to put it on eBay, since it is a very valuable volume, but we decided to offer it up to a forum participant.


The rules:
  • Agree not to sell the book!
How to win a copy:
  • Post in this thread. (Also, send us a PM with your mailing address.)

Thursday evening we will select a random winner.

We plan to visit the post office on Friday to send off a mysterious package to Thailand so we can combine the trip. If we don't have an address by Thursday evening then we cannot mail the book!

It doesn't matter where you live. If you can receive mail we can get the book to you.

Uh... I feel like I missed something, what is The Book? God's compilation of the most beautiful proofs of all the theorems?

If I were to venture a guess, I would suggest it was relevant to a nearby thread. But, merely a guess and no PM sent, although I am considering it...

We have four entries so far, complete with mailing addresses.

The drawing will be later tonight at or around 8PM CST.

It isn't too late to get in on the action!
