Sorry about the scarcity of postage around here. We're located in the Northwest, so first our power was out, and then our server is in Taiwan, so the recent earthquake there screwed things up even further. But everything seems to be back in order, so hopefully a flood of posts will be forthcoming, starting with my Christmas Gift Certificate Round-up:

1. Ida B, by Katherine Hannigan: 70% sweet, 30% sad kids' book about a fourth grade girl whose wonderful, imaginative life is thrown into a tailspin by her mother's illness.

2. The Wallflower, Volume 10, by Tomoko Hayakawa: The most recent installment in my favorite manga series, featuring my favorite self-contained story (the one with the kotatsu).

3. Missing You, by Meg Cabot: the last story in my beloved 1-800-Where-R-You series! Finally, finally we learn what Rob did to get probation....

4. Julie & Julia, by Julie Powell: My mom gave me this, along with a Julia Child cookbook. While there is, like, no chance of me trying to prepare chicken livers in aspic or whatever, I'm really looking forward to reading Powell's book.

5. The Twelve Terrors of Christmas, by John Updike, illustrated by Edward Gorey: No Christmas is complete with out a little Gorey goodness.

6. Billionaires Prefer Blondes, by Suzanne Enoch: I've been wanting this book for a while--Enoch's stuff is always fun--but I was too lazy to either request a review copy or go out and get one. The cover is unbelievably tacky, but it was a very entertaining, silly read.
