    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Wow. That certainly does suggest it sold out the first printing. That's great for Mike and for University Press of Kentucky.

    While you wait, I'll recommend another new University Press of Kentucky book, Kentucky BBQ by Wes Berry, also available on Amazon. If you don't know Wes, he's one of us, just a friend you haven't met yet.

    And who doesn't like bourbon and BBQ?

    Chuck,
    The first printing was sold out at the end of March. I am surprised that there is that long of a waiting period on Amazon, because UPK told me the second printing is already here.

    It was good talking with those of you who came by the Getz Museum. I hope all enjoyed the book as well as the conversation.

    Mike, I ordered a book from Amazon and got it the Wednesday of Sampler week, so if the first printing had already sold out in March, perhaps the second has sold out as well?

    Bourduc,
    I checked with the UPK and there is no reason that I can see for such a delay. The Press assured me that Amazon has plenty of books, so hopefully your book will be arriving soon.

    Thanks for the update, Mike. My order says that I will receive two shipments, maybe it is the other items in the order holding up shipment?

    Still looking forward to the book.

    Thanks for the heads up on the BBQ book - Kentucky BBQ by Wes Berry. I'll have to put it on my wish list.

    Well done Mike. A great book. It now sits on the bourbon shelf as a reference while pouring away.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I am enjoying the book, too. Nice read. I like the use of the "call outs" in gray boxes with tidbits of information , e.g. "John Fitch, "The Real McCoy", "Whisky or Whiskey", etc. It reminds me of the similar thing they do on shows like "Modern Marvels", right before they go to commercial. Interestingly, when I read the ones in the book, I hear that guys voice from Modern Marvels.

    Joe,
    I don't have cable so I have not seen Modern Marvels, but I am glad you like the sidebars. I tried to use them to explain things that people might not know or if I thought the subject seemed to fit in the history being discussed, but I did not want to get off the subject in the text. Thanks again to all who have read the book.
