Oh, no, you've reached the end of the book!
I'm still writing it. If you want to give me encouragement, a tip of any size to my PayPal will guarantee a new page with your name on it!
Please include a note on how you'd like to be attributed. On top of the new lesson, I'll put a name and link of your choice, or can keep you anonymous.
(I reserve the right to veto any name or link I find inappropriate -- I want to keep the textbook family-friendly as best as possible. GitHub, Twitter, and personal websites should all be fine)
I've been pretty busy with real life, so I've been delaying writing more lessons until I have a better idea of how to order them and have time to do it properly. This is my queue of owed lessons:
Thanks for your generosity. I really appreciate it and want to get to this book as soon as possible!

In the later lessons I think I'll move more into a format where I have one or two "letters" or stories as opposed to just the drilling sentences.
