I realize not everyone owns a Kindle, so as soon as I find out about availability outside of the Kindle, I will pass along the news!

***UPDATE*** Here is a link for a Kindle app that allows you to view the book on iPhones, Macs, Blackberry, Android, other gadgets and computers:


  1. Hi Bobby,

    You don't need a Kindle to buy the book.
    For those who have other devices, they can download the Kindle for *** (iPad, iPhone, etc) and view the illustration book through that app.


  2. Hey Satsuki,

    Yes I just found out about the app. And just posted the link to it!
