    I really enjoyed reading this post. GTA IV is a pretty killer game and I for one am pretty stoked about it.

    Even though it has already been released at the time of writing this I wish it would of been availible sooner.

    BTW I wrote a book that you may be interested in.

    In fact I even went and put up a special discount page to celebrate the release of Grand Theft Auto 4.

    If you have a few minutes go ahead and check it out.
