    My pleasure, Amy. Ive been meaning to read Heart-Shaped Box for years now, so I enjoyed your review.

    Ive heard mixed things about both The Passage and Nemesis, so well see! :)

  3. Hmm, Im really not so sure about the whole Facebook gift card thing. Maybe Im just not addicted enough to Facebook!

    And, umm, the adopt-a-word site might be my new favorite thing!!
