Update on McGonigal Book

Just a quick little post today, guys. My copy of Jane McGonigal's new book, Reality is Broken, arrived in the mail this morning (note the totally unnecessary unboxing image). I wrote a post a couple weeks ago about the ARG designer, and mentioned how I was looking forward to reading her book. Well, now it's here, and I'm going to make a concerted effort to get it read in the next week or two. Stay tune for a review in the relatively near future, and for those of you interested in reading it yourselves, it's now available from Amazon and elsewhere.
