3. ceceliafutch - November 10, 2011

Wow! Great list. Good luck. 🙂

nrhatch - November 10, 2011

If you feel like perusing their stacks . . . you might enjoy coming up with your own wish list.

Just do a blog post listing the books, and identifying the charity you want to have win with you.

4. Judith - November 10, 2011

What a great idea but I guess the winner would have to be in the US as would the charity?

nrhatch - November 10, 2011

I just checked the Official Rules and it is limited to US residents, 18 and older.

Sorry to you and all my overseas friends!
