Note that there's three books they ask if we're interested in, ... let me
know if any and/or all of them are of interest to you, and I'll pass that

I'm probably at least potentially interested in the:
-- Advanced AJAX: Architecture and Best Practices by Shawn Lauriat;

I'll probably update them with whatever folks have expressed interest
in through the end of this week's BUUG meeting.
