New "THAT IS PRICELESS" e-Book Collection! A mere $2.99!

Sure, there's already one "That Is Priceless" book out there on Amazon, but as the gallery closes in on its 1000th Masterpiece, I figured it was high time for a new collection.  "That Is Priceless Goes To France" is an assortment of re-titled paintings from the best museums in yes, France -- making it the perfect companion on your next European vacation (but equally enjoyable to read right here in the good ol' US of A).  Full disclosure:  thanks to France being home to art's 800-pound gorilla, the Louvre, you might recognize a couple of Masterpieces from the first book, but there's a whole panoply of new stuff, so check it out!
