To: clburke@carolyn.org

Dear Webmasters:

We are completely delighted to announce the publication of our first book of Point reviews: "The World Wide Web Top 1000." It's now available at bookstores everywhere, published by New Riders - an imprint of Macmillan Publishing, and carrying the proud price tag of $29.95. (ISBN # is: 1-56205-577-1) Macmillan also has an online bookstore at http://mcp.com/, or call 1-800-428-5331.

We're further delighted to tell you that your site was nominated as one of the elite 1000 included in the book. The reviews are modified and expanded versions of our Website entries, and some also include screen shots. We think you'll be pleased by the book, even if we can't offer you a free copy. (The publishers didn't think much of that idea.)

We at Point wanted to 1) thank you for your participation and congratulate you on your appearance in the book; 2) encourage you to rush out and buy dozens of copies; and 3) urge you, if you haven't already done so, to proudly display the Point Top 5% badge, (can be found at http://www.pointcom.com/badges) and link to our site, (http://www.pointcom.com). We hope you've found that our badge continues to be a helpful symbol of Web excellence.

Best wishes to you for the holiday season!
