OMG. I asked for Scrivener for my birthday this year. Just a few more weeks away... Squee!!! I had absolutely no idea that I needed to read a book to understand how to use it though. Maybe I need to ask for a Barnes and Noble giftcard too. LOL

Glad to hear...and happy early birthday! Make sure they know to take advantage of the 20% Scrivener Discount. I love Scrivener. You don't necessarily need a book, though some people love a good how-to book. I always thought Scrivener was pretty easy to use, plus it's fun to dabble :)

I use Scrivener and love it! It's not only organized but, more important, visually easy to see and find where you've put something (like an important plot note!)
