The book itself is nicely done. But I note from the ISBN that it 
is taken from a block of 10, which is extraordinary for a 
publisher.  I have a block of 1,000 and haven't published my 
first book yet. Fles books was incorporated in September 2008 
and the Scribus Manual is probably their first publication. 

I have the feeling that there are publishers on the list who 
could have handled the distribution more expeditiously.
