I thought this was pretty funny, so I figured I’d give an update:
A package arrived for me and I excitedly opened it only to find…
A copy of Random House Webster’s Dictionary!
I’m talking with the book sellers, but it was just a truly interesting thing to discover. I figure that the “R” at the beginning was the reason, since that’s the only similarity I can see between this dictionary and a copy of “Ringworld”. Oh well.
