Book prizes..

This mail is primarily meant for the student who correctly guessed that he/she is one of the students crossing 70 (he/she knows who she/he is).

It is being cc'd to the class list just so to set the record straight and stop any possible speculations of reneging on my part (most of which I probably
mooted myself ;-).
