I received my SantaThing books in the mail today-- thank you! I especially look forward to reading the John McPhee title… I've heard such good things about his writing, but haven't had a chance to test him out yet! Happy holidays! :)
You're welcome! Hope you enjoy them.
Dear Heidi,
Is your name really heidi (I love Johanna Spyri's character!)
So I read this in your Crime & punishment review:
When I lived in St. Petersburg, I had to do the Crime and Punishment walk, the highlight of which is finding Rodion's garret room. There's graffiti on the wall outside "his" door from all his fans and supporters. It's the greatest.

Please tell me all about it!
Hey, anybody that shares 42 out 811 books with me must be pretty interesting! 8^}

By the way, I love your collection wayward youth!
