Comment: Thank you for the book review. It is not typically something I would read, but I agree that it's interesting how we all deal with death differently, depending on our culture. (Side note: You read so many books in September! I managed to read only 1! lol)

Comment: Thanks for the cute card. You are better than me with spiders. I can't stand them if they are in the house (unless they are Daddy Long Legs).

Comment: Thanks for sharing :) BTW, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill (Waxman) is currently in my TBR shelf. Is it any good? I am about to start on a new book. Was wondering if i should read it first. hehehe.
Response: I liked it. It's a light read, so keep that in mind (depending on what else you have going on). Much of the character development was a little shallow to my taste, but the book keeps moving and does have some emotional connection points.

Julia, I received the Alaska postcards. Thank you so much!! It was very nice of you to swap with me.

(NN Check Me Out! 3)

Greetings to you from Finland!

First of all, mentioning that you're LGBTQ friendly made me smile, because I'm pansexual, and am always happy to see straight people who support us!

I think I might have to steal your idea of saving postcards for your child, I have a little one as well (16 months old). :)

Happy swapping~
