So your basic arguement is that e-books don't count in terms of sales. Ok. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jun 27, 21:32

Are you sure you know how to read? I haven't said anything remotely like that. {nm}   BionicMoron on Jun 28, 04:51

Not surprised. They need to get this movie into production yesterday. {nm}   MiyazakiFan on Jun 27, 14:50
