      Thank you again for offering yours. I'm going to see if my Indie bookstore has the paperback so I can get it.

  2. I would be happy to win anythin, but I'm dying to read Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman. Every review I've seen of it says it's great, and it sounds awesome! I've requested that my library buy it, since I've already spent my book limit for a bit (as usual lol), but I'm never sure they will buy what I suggest :(
