  1. Some really great books in you IMM this week, Audrey :) I Capture Castle has been on my wishlist for some time, I've only heard great things about it.

    Superb quality on your vlog by the way! Did you use a webcam or a camcorder?

  3. Thomas Mackee did not follow you home! He is here with me! I can't believe you snuck that message in. I nearly missed it LOL.

    Great books too. I am glad to hear you loved Five Flavors of Dumb. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Shut Out. Happy reading and congrats on being quoted in the magazine.

  5. OMG you won such awesome books, including FFoD!!! *jealous* And why can't we have discounted bookstores closing down? D: I had to go to the US to find a closing Borders (yes, I specifically looked up a closing Borders :D) to buy discount books.

    OMG and that article is soooo cool. Dude. You're famous.

    And the hat! XD
