Apparently Cecilia Dart Thornton is now some random relative of mine by marriage. Is that reason enough to read her books, do you think?

Hmm-- we're leaving tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn, so let's see if anyone else wants them and if there's still no claims by next week then I could nab them off you? I don't want to pinch them off someone who genuinely really wants them, and I'm merely curious.

Argh-- I just remembered that I still haven't gotten a red packet for my cousin yet! (I give him money, he gives my unmarried sister money... I may as well just give it to her directly!)

Flying, fortunately. I don't know how often I could bear that drive.

Ahahaha, of course you have spares! Ah well-- they're easily enough available in Adelaide; I'll just have to remember to get one before Friday, is all. They're having a traditional pre-wedding tea ceremony, which I've never done before... should be interesting.

Hey-- since we last spoke my move to Sydney has been confirmed, and I figure I can't be collecting more books (in fact, I think I'll be following your example and doing a giveaway in the not too distant future). Not to mention my, er, stack of unread books is presently a mile high. But thank you for the offer-- it's a shame nobody else wants them!

Unfortunate it's his job we're going for... I'm now scrambling in catch-up mode to try and find something for myself. Which is proving less than easy! I'm sure it will work out, one way or the other.

Thank you! I do indeed live Northish. My sleep cycle is so irregular at the moment that I'm worried I'd stuff you around by making a time then not showing up, so maybe we'd better do this by post. Do you have a PayPal account I can use to send you the postage? According to Australia post, it should come to about $6.60, does that sound OK?

Man, I should have friended you so much earlier!

(Not just for books.)

(Can you say 'friended' on DW? 'Circled'? 'Dwircled'?)
