    I just went onto the Book-ends site, to see if I could find out any info about this "overwhelming" demand for the Yoda book--and it does say that "due to overwhelming demand, signed copies will not be delivered before Christmas". How is this possible?? And why doesn't Beth say this this when she posts about it? There are really that many crazies who want this?

    Writing a children's book overwhelmed her ....requiring a co-author.

    You can't expect her to sign her name 10 times a week.

    Howard bought up the bulk of them and has them stored in a few un-used rooms on the other end of Chimney Manor.

    Can we at least get Beth's co-author, K.A. Alister, to sign our copies?

    Beth and I are both big fans of his/her 1996 book, My Ponies, and his/her 1997 book, Genie School.

    The first(and only) printing was the 50 books that Marianne from Brooklyn bought - I guess they have to come up with fake demand for it.

    • bethosternOk! I'm humbled by the amount of people who want a signed book and thrilled that more money is being made to save animals from the purchase of my book! I'm going to keep signing books from Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ if you still want one signed!! We will mail the books to you after I sign! Can purchase now on their website or by calling the store directly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart...and all the animals you are helping me save. #thisholidaygiftsaveslives
