Thanks everyone - I am really happy with how it came out.

I did take the book apart myself - I didn't want to leave it to someone else, but you probably could. One thing I can tell you for sure - your book is NOT going to fall apart on you any time soon. It is glued, stitched and welded together.

The following is probably standard for how books are put together, but I never took one apart before so this was new to me. Inside the book are actually a number of I guess you could call them "pamphlets" of about 10 pages each that are each glued and then stitched to the inside spine of the cover. You have to open the book real wide to find the stitching.

Once you cut the stitching you find within every 10 pages or so, you can remove all the "inside" pages of each pamphlet, but then the "cover" page of each pamphlet is what is glued to the spine - this was a bit of a pain, pulling out these pages without ripping them - it wasn't too difficult but you just have to go slow.

Then I used a paper cutter to cut the pages, since each piece of paper I pulled out actually had 4 pages on it. That wasn't so bad, but I think if I had to use scissors to cut them all it would have been a total mess since I am not steady of hand and patient of spirit.

Then I took the whole pile down to Staples and they put the spiral bind on for $4.

My copy just shipped from Amazon today, so apparently whatever was clogging up their pipes has been flushed away.

I ordered it in February from Amazon. This Wednesday I got an email asking if I wanted to cancel, and when I didn't it said estimated arrival would be the second week in April. I hope this is true and isn't just another automatic Amazon estimated date push-out (I'm optimistically going with the concept that everybody who pre-ordered before I did is getting books now and I'll get mine down the line).

I agree on the more usefulness of the spiral bound concept. I have various heavy things on the kitchen counter that routinely get placed on both sides of Sippin' Safari when I'm mixing from it (and its various pages have the requisite amount of stains from rum, 5 or 6 kinds of juice, falernum, allspice dram, syrups, etc--still waiting for the opportunity to leave my first oke stain on it, however).

I received a notice today from Amazon saying mine shipped.

Great idea to make a spiral bound!
Mostly I copy the recipe onto a handy file card or back of business card and then it lingers around the bar area
like a cheat sheet. With notes, stains, and maybe some cartoons added along the way.

The issue Jeff had with the spiral bound books is that the major retailers like Borders would not carry the book with a spiral binding. They need to sell books sideways too. A binder style cover with a spiral would work, but I gather was cost prohibitive.

The "badge of honor" of a well-used book.

My copy is arriving Monday from amazon, so all I need to do is reset the start of the weekend to Monday...

If it doesn't come within the next day or two, I would cancel it and order it direct from SLG. I got mine literally the next day after I ordered it from them. Plus it came with some strange free comic book that I can't recall the name of at the moment. See you kids tonight at Don's.

Jason, thanks for coming to Don's on Saturday! Yesterday I got an email from Amazon that Remixed shipped, and I should be getting it 3/31. Yahoo! I'm going to stick to bourbon, rye or scotch if I make a drink in the next couple of days, for balance--because after that I have a feeling there is going to be a heavy dose of new rum-based cocktails being constructed in our household.

I received mine today from Amazon. Looks completely delish.

Amazon shipped on Sat. the 27th! My copy I ordered on the 13th from SLG hasn't arrived yet. Wonder which one will be here first.

When is Monday like a Friday? When UPS delivers this.



Thank you to Jeff Berry...the book looks simply incredible.
