Trade update (10/28/08):
I've given birth as promised (welcome Morgann Rose!), so I can't make any short-term promises regarding when I will get books back to people, or when I can have a not-yet-reviewed available book ready for trade. Therefore, no further requests for trades, ABCKs (they aren't random if they're requests, right?), etc. I need to catch up with my prior obligations and take some time to set my own reading list. I may on occasion, offer some availables via the fora, but I am not yet willing to assign deadlines for my TBR holdings.

From the thread on business cards (thank you, enigmacat):
