Re: iGenii is NOW Available Online for All Genii Subscribers

So is it possible for me to subscribe to Genii so I can access these online versions (and the library) - but not receive the physical copy also? I ask this because I'm in the UK - which costs me more to receive the physical copy - and being a small country, I'm already very limited on cupboard space...

Re: Cervon Notebooks & the Berglas Book for sale...

Hi,

I've been kindly informed that my price on the Berglas book was too high given what was paid for recent sales of the book.

I'm therefore lowering the price to $500 plus shipping or including shipping if paying by bank transfer rather than paypal.

Re: Cervon Notebooks & the Berglas Book for sale...

The Cervon Notebooks are now sold, leaving just the Berglas book now.

Incidentally, as I've done with the buyer of the Notebooks, if you can pay via bank transfer, I'll cover the shipping - since I'll save money on PayPal fees by doing it that way.
