Just wanted to say thank you to terra57, drslump612, and morgaine77! I've had a crappy week, and the weekend's not looking to be any better, but receiving your gifts has made it infinitely more tolerable! Merry Christm…

Thanks so much for my squished pennies, bookmark, and postcard! It was a lovely first gift to receive from this wish-list. Edited: Hey, I just noticed! Who wung me? Thanks to you? Edit Part II: As promised, ten …

...I haven't been around much lately, and when I have been, I haven't gotten on the fora much, so I entirely missed this thread! Hope I'm not too late, because what a lovely idea! I'm excited about being able to fulfil…

Nope, not those either. Man, I hate not being able to remember! It's driving me batty. The cover had a girl walking on a beach, I remember that much.

No, this one was about a teenager. Thanks for the guess, though!

I need some help identifying this book, which I remember loving as a kid but don't actually remember much about. It was a Christian book about a girl who moves to California to stay with some family member (don't rememb…

I'm usually willing to give another chance, unless I just absolutely despised it. Example: I didn't like Pat Conroy's The Prince of Tides at ALL, but his Beach Music is my favorite book.

I hated The Prince of Tides, but I could read Beach Music every day and never grow tired of it.

You've already got Virginia plenty covered, but there's also Adriana Trigiani's Big Stone Gap books. :)

Word Freak, by Stefan Fatsis: Hilarious and excellent, especially for a Scrabble geek like me! (Only five hours and 23 minutes until my next match, but who's counting?) Oh, and I recently finished Fast Food Nation, w…

"Holy roller!" Particularly at, say, the Kentucky State Fair or other events in Louisville that bring in groups from the less, shall we say, "cosmopolitan" parts of the state. No offense intended, of course... but th…

Currently: www.googlewhack.com. It's damn addictive, especially at work, because it's easy to play without being noticeable. ;)

"Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent…

Look, this is just getting ridiculous. You need to stop starting new relays just because you can't play the current ones at the time, or because you want the "free" book for starting one. It's just unnecessary, and bor…

...in fact, there's one on the floor next to me right now! :) I've only gotten one journal entry so far, but I've gotten several lovely thank-you letters that make it all worthwhile. http://bookcrossing.com/journal/…
