    I always like seeing what others receive in the mail. I am kind of hoping not to receive anything for a while as I have too many arcs to read at the moment. I have designed October ARC month and hope to read at least 5 and get those reviews posted.

    Thank you for introducing me to Amazon crossing. I saw your tweet about it and contacted them. They have agreed to send me the Chinese book, so I am very happy about that. Thanks again :-)
