    I have it on my Kindle... It's an amazing book. I can't tell you of anywhere that would sell you a hard copy - but get your hands on it however you can. Incredible read.

    On the strip? Doubt it, but Huntington Press (Las Vegas Advisor) is a couple blocks north of Rio and should have it if it is still in print.

    It's on Amazon. You should check on Las Vegas Advisor though and go pick it up if they have it.

    Are there any bookstores left on the strip? Most Vegas strip gift shops barely have periodicals let alone books.

    I saw it at the airport a couple years or so ago. I didn't purchase the hard copy but did grab it on my kindle and read it on plane ride home. It is a great read.

    Is that the name of the book? Whale Hunt in the Desert? I can't find it on Kobo..is there an author I could search instead? I'm in the middle, center, end beginning of a book I'm about to toss and want something good. Thanks for an author I could perhaps search.

    I'd pop by HP and get a copy, might even be some autographed ones left. Or just order it online from HP or amazon or whomever.

    Sokay. Thanks. Found it on Amazon. I can't download it to Kobo. Was Steve at Nugget and then Hard Rock?

    I'll read it to you for $25 an hour. I've been told I have a very soothing voice ;)

    seriously though, read a free chapter of this online and found it pretty fascinating.. ordering a copy to kill some time on my next flight out.
