In My Mailbox (Oct. 30)

IMM is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren.

A little surprise for this week :)

YES, that's right, a video folks. Did you like it? I'm really sorry for the crappy quality, I used my computer's video camera, and yeah, it's not that great (and I doubt you'd like to see me in HD anyway). I also made a few mistakes...and forgot some information...Well, that's what the rest of the blog post is for, yes?

(LOL at my many different sounding accents...)

So, one mistake I made was saying "Penguin USA" when I meant to say "Penguin Canada". Yeah, sorry about that. THANKS PENGUIN CANADA & Goodreads for the book, Hope: A Tragedy!

The other mistake is that damn comma at the end!
