Since I'm enjoying the C64 book a great deal, I've just pledged it :)

Mine turned up yesterday. The book itself is excellent, from what I've seen of it already.
I was a bit disappointed that the packaging took a heft whack in the delivery process though. :(

I've sent a message to see if anything can be done!

Looking forward to the Amiga one. And then the Speccy one he'll be working on next

Got my Amiga book a few days ago, to go with the C64 one, a few days ago. Think I would've preferred fewer stretch goals if it had meant a sturdier slip case.

I could have done without the slip case altogether. Its sort of pointless on this type of book, which is meant to be picked up and browsed randomly. Its on my desk at work at the moment, with the slip case chucked in a drawer so it doesn't get overly squashed. If I leave it in the slipcase, the people who pass my desk won't be inclined to look at it. The Amiga Commpendium has replaced Boyo's Speccy book for the moment.

The second C64 book Kickstarter finishes today. You get a lot of stuff on top of the book, so if you got the first book, you might be interested in the second:
