Wishlist Wednesday: Maureen Johnson: The Novel: The Board Game: The Musical on Ice by Jameson Morrissey

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Pen to Paper Blog, in which feature a book we can't wait to get off of our wish list and onto our shelves!  I normally participate in Waiting on Wednesday sponsored by Jill at Breaking the Spine, but the book I am talking about this week is one that isn't a new book, not a new release.  It is one that was a very limited run of books, that is very hard to get.  I thought I had one ordered off of Amazon, then later the day I ordered, I got a message saying they'd already sold it.  So that really sucked!  So now, I'm hoping that maybe someone out there has a copy, or knows where to get one, because this is a book that I think would be so much fun!  
One author that just cracks me up on Twitter is Maureen Johnson.  And there is a book about her, with some very humorous, yet I hear somewhat or mostly truthful tidbits.  See my picture below where I met her last year at BEA.

Here is the information about Maureen Johnson:  The Novel:  The Board Game:  The Musical on Ice from Goodreads: 

Did you know that NY Times Bestselling author Maureen Johnson was once a part-time beekeeper? That she once encountered Mexican Jumping Tigers in New York City? Or that her fellow author friend Scott Westerfeld is impervious to death? Read the wildly hilarious secret past of YA author and Twitter Phenomenon Maureen Johnson! Personally tweeted to her legions of fans, Maureen has verified publicly that everything in this book--every detail--is true. All of it. For the first time, the mysterious blanks in her past are filled! A loving tribute to Nerdfighteria and Maureen's manic past, this book is crammed full of actual events and inside jokes, written to be accessible to even the most casual of readers. No prior knowledge needed! Pick up your copy today and see why the author herself has tweeted it to her legions of fans, stating "I barely have words for its majesty!"
How about you, have you heard of this?  Do you know where I might be able to get my hands on a copy?  This is a book I would kill to get my hands on!!  
What about you this week?  What book/books are you dying to get your hands on?
