This book..
is AMAZING! Just bought it and when I saw the price at $2,495.00 I just knew it was a typo! Like how could this book be this CHEAP?! It's well worth the money, I mean who needs to pay
bills when you can buy this book! And after you're done with this book, you can just use the pages to warm yourself up because you already skipped out on months rent for purchasing it!. But like seriously.. why does this book cost this much? You can't even sample it!
