Comment: Sorry that computer issues and holidays delayed my response! I completely agreed with your letter about Thoreau -- it was only after I discovered that he was a very entertaining travel writer that I felt like I could read a piece all the way through :) Check out his trip to Quebec -- I have been there, and his portrayal of Scots guards at the Citadel was classic ... I nearly split my sides laughing at his speculations on their chances in a kilt versus long underwear! I would love to do 1:1 book reviews/ challenges with you once you are settled again -- family life. Nuts. But I have so enjoyed these swaps :)

Comment: I'm so glad you enjoyed the book, especially since it held such significance for you. If you'd like to try Asimov beyond the three books you have (if you can find time with your little ones!) I recommend the Lije Baley series starting with Caves of Steel.

Comment: Thanks for your lovely well-thought-out letter -- I feel that if we put our two letters together we synthesize something. Of course, mine is less well thought out and messier! I did enjoy reading about Huxley and reading Huxley; thanks for hosting a thought-provoking swap!

Comment: Thank you for your letter! I love your analysis of LOTF. I read that in high school and i think I have been afraid to reread it, afraid to loose the magic of the first read, similar to how you were telling me about your past experiences. thanks again for the letter! loved it

Comment: I know exactly what you mean. I did the same thing for my Roulette book - picking it up and then putting it back down. It was an excellent book but for some reason being on a deadline made me procrastinate on it. Thank you for your amazing review of March! It sounds like an excellent book!

I had many of the same feelings about it as you did, although once Newland married May, I was glad that he didn't leave her to go be with Ellen - I just thought he should never have married her in the first place! :) Thanks for your review - I really enjoyed reading it.

Comment: Thank you for your log! I also have read A Long Way Down which I didn't care for too much and A Curious Incident..which I did like when I read it a few years ago. Some other books peaked my interest, so I'll have to check those out :)
Response: Its funny how some books work for us and others just don't. But I know I am not the only one to feel that way about A Long Way Down. I don't think it was one of his best. Thank you for the rating and the heart.

Comment: I know exactly what you mean about keeping track of these things and rating them! Your pages are lovely! And I love the colours you used in your spread- did you use Copics by any chance?
Response: They were ProMarkers which I am still very unsure with. I see so many beautiful uses of ProMarkers but I need a lot more practice with them. I am really glad you liked the pages - I have to admit when I see some of the work I feel very unworthy! There are so many talented people here!

Comment: I loved the butterfly and your note about the whole process was hilarious - I know exactly what you mean. The only bummer is that because the packaging was so thin, the butterfly arrived broken. I am gonna try to repair it with some glue and washi tape because it is so cute. Since this is an international swap I don't want to ask you to resend due to cost. Just maybe an FYI to use a thicker envelope or maybe some bubble wrap next time. Thank you so much and I appreciate receiving your first decoupage effort!!
Response: Oh, I am so, so sorry! I will make it back up to you - I can't believe it broke. It's definitely my fault, I should have used a bubble wrap envelope. Leave it with me. I will get something else over to you very soon as I feel completely responsible.

Comment: Again a wonderful letter. I'm always sad when I reach the end when I'm reading your letters, because your writing is amazing.:-) I have the same opinion as you do: I like 'funny', but most of the books which claim to be funny are actually very boring and very predictable. :-O Congratulations with the pregnancy, I hope everything will go well in ten weeks^_^ Thank you for the great swap.
Response: Hopefully we'll be swap partners many more times in the future as it is always great to write for someone who I know appreciates it. Thank you also for your wishes - I can't wait until baby is born and I won't be waddling around quite so much any more!

Comment: Thank you for your book review! The book I read, The Boomerang Clue, was also not a Poirot or Marple mystery (although it was a murder mystery) and I enjoyed it quite a bit. The book you read sounds really interesting. I recently read a few books set in modern-day Afghanistan and it would be interesting to read this one to compare the middle East in the 1950s with the middle East today. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and if you're still looking for authors to add to the series, I'd love to see Charles Dickens in there somewhere!
Response: I am glad you found something new and unexpected as well! You are the second person now who has asked for Dickens, although we did him as the first one. I think we might need to do a Dickens Round 2 for everyone who missed out! Thank you so much for the lovely rating and for taking part.

Comment: What a fabulous book list - I have read some of the books, but you have peaked my interest on a few others. I also love Louise Penny's books. I don't know whether you like indie music, but if you do check out this youtube video. This group created an album based on Margaret Atwood's book "Handmaid's Tail" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTaZSpuVwfs If you can't reach link the group is called Lake of Canada and it's there most recent album (I think). I also wanted to tell you what a great job you did on your reviews. You reminded me that I need to write my reviews right away instead of waiting until the end.
Response: What a great video - thank you! I am really glad you enjoyed reading the reviews. It does make it quite a bit easier to write them as you go, although I don't always do it myself!

Comment: Wow, what a great letter!^_^ It was really enjoyable to read. My first thought was: "Wow, she needs to become a writer!" Afterwards I saw on your profile that you are one.XD lol You are talented. Your letter was more enjoyable then the book that I've read.XD Reading the contents of your letter I realised I was looking in a mirror. I also didn't like my book. It also was a book recommended by someone else. Maybe we shouldn't trust people for book reviews anymore. :-p My book was Unseen by Karin Slaughter. Allthough I don't think it was the author's writing that bothered me, but also the person and story itself. Thank you for typing the letter, it's really easy to read that way. I'm so glad I was partnered up with you. It's a great swap you hosted too, It really was about time that I was going to read my books from my bookcase, they've been sitting there for years. I've become an addict for my e-reader now. So it was really enjoyable to hold an actual book again(allthough the story wasn't so great). Thank you for this great swap. Have you published a book already? I would love to read one. ^_^
Response: Wow, thank you so much for your kind comments! They have really given me a boost. No, I haven't published anything yet, partly because I so often doubt myself, but also because it is only in the past couple of years since I started my MA that I have seriously got down to writing. I am so glad you liked the swap - I am really enjoying it too. Even with books I don't like, at least I know and can make way on my shelves for something new.

Comment: Thank you for your interesting and thoughtful comments on 'Ex Libris'. I also read this one for the March Book Club and share your mixed responses to the essays! I did, however, love the proofreading family -- for some of us, it is impossible not to see typographical errors! I've looked at Amazon and she does have a second book of book-related essays called 'At Large and At Small: Confessions of a Literary Hedonist' which I might try at some time in the future.
Response: I also discovered I have another book of essays by her on my shelf which aren't related to books, so I am going to have to give it a go too. Thank you so much for the rating.

Comment: Thank you so much for your log. I'm sorry you had to slow down with your reading. I agree with you about Patterson, being the same and predictable. I usually read him when I need something quick. I really only like his Michael Bennett and Private series, and the stuff he writes with Chris Grabenstein & Marshall Karp, two authors I enjoy.
Response: I have so much Patterson but I feel guilty about giving it away without reading it. But each book only takes me about 5 hours to read (and I am a pretty slow reader) so I am sure I'll get through them. Thank you so much for the rating and the heart xx

Comment: Thanks for your book club paper. I like the Harry Potter novels, bur I'm not sure that I want to read her other novels. The Cuckoo's Calling sounds more interesting than the Casual Vacancy
Response: It is completely different - I think she's a really versatile writer. I know a lot of people didn't like The Casual Vacancy, but I think The Cuckoo's calling is different again. Thank you again for the lovely rating xx

Comment: Nancy, what a beautiful package. The cards and lettersets are so pretty, I love the notebook, the pencils will come in very handy as I am always losing them! My favourite thing though is the necklace and earring set. It is so delicate and beautiful. I am going out later and will be wearing it. I wish I could give a hundred hearts.
Response: I am always nervous with jewellery, as it can be such a personal thing, but I loved that set too so I am thrilled we have similar tastes. Thank you again - I love swapping with you and I hope we can do plenty more of it xxxx

Response: Oh dear :-( I must remember to tape up all of the edges. I am sorry it was damaged - I hope everything in the envelope was still OK? I am also stunned how quickly it arrived. I am glad you liked it though - It was my first attempt at art journalling, but won't be my last. Thank you for the lovely rating.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely headband! The flower looks great. Maybe this would be a nice swap in your new group.....? The stamps were not cancelled, would you like them back?
Response: I am glad you like it! I thought that something like this in the new group would work as it is relatively quick to knit? I thoroughly enjoyed making it and have learnt a lot from it (as I do every new thing I knit). I am surprised they haven't cancelled the stamps!? Of course, if you get the chance to send them back, although do keep them if you'd like. Thank you for the rating and I hope we can swap more knitted stuff together soon.

Comment: Hi Nancy! I absolutely loved reading your log! I haven't read any of the books on your list before but I do have 'The Night Circus' and 'Gone Girl' on my shelf so I'm glad that you rated them so highly! I am also intrigued by the books that you gave 4's too, they certainly sound interesting...we must have similar reading tastes! I agree that I also read a lot more books for the reading log! I am also tempted to sign up for the next one, even though it will only be my uni books that I will have chance to read with studying literature!
Response: Don't worry, I too am going to have quite a lot of Uni books next quarter. Just started Joyce's The Dubliners last night, and I also have Foster Wallace and Rushdie to read this semester. It would be great to see what you have to read for your course too! Thank you for the rating and the heart and definitely give The Night Circus a try - I think you'll love it.

Comment: Thank you. I have actually read all of the Bronte sisters works. They are hard to read in parts because of all the French that they use. From what I can remember I think that I thought Heathcliffe was not a very nice person and that Cathy was very lack luster. I will have to re-read it sometime soon and let you know though. I love the book mark that you made. It is awesome. I love the clever comment that you wrote in the front of the book too.

I have a problem with using books for crafts, too, but I found a book that had the first 260 pages missing with a completely intact cover and decided that it was giving itself up for the good of the crafting world. Lol. Thank you for the super cute sequins, too. The cow and elephant ones are so unique and adorable!

As for one of the points in your letter, if I think someone did a super amazing job deserving of way more than a heart, I usually leave a message on their profile along with leaving a very awesome comment in the ratings. Hope that helps. And while it is up to you, for an intensive swap, you so have the option to specify that you cannot angel or that it might take you a while to do so. They can always search for an angel in th forums. Have a great day!
Response: Thank you so much for the help and advice! It is good to learn from others. I am hoping to make sure that I won't set up a swap I can't angel but I hadn't realised people could go to the forums to do so. Thank you so much for the heart as well.

Comment: Thank you for your letter and the picture of your 4 cats - I enjoyed reading about Dizzy, Narla, Iggy & Joey, and their personalities. We have a quirky tortoiseshell named "Coo" - she's very small too, for being 6 years old. Thank you also for the neat notebook with the close-up cat's face. Enjoy the day!
Response: Glad you enjoyed it. It's morning here now and all four of them are circling outside the room here crying for their breakfast!

Response: I know how you feel about backlogs, but when you do get a chance to get to these, I think you'll love them.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! I love cats :) In answer to your questions: smaller projects, charts (in magazines) or small kits, and 1 at a time. I don't have the patience to do anything big! (cross stitcher is my fave mag for patterns)
Response: I am addicted to cross stitch magazines myself, so I fully understand! Well done for only doing 1 at a time though...I am dreadful for starting new projects.

Comment: Thank you for the best Friendship Book ever =) Honestly I have never seen such a well crafted FB it is so beautiful. Now as you know with some traveling swaps, someone along the way decides to just keep it for themselves. So with how beautiful your FB is I fear someone in the course of my FB travels might decide to keep it. That is how nice it is =). Thank you for this awesome creation.
Response: Wow, I am so touched! I do hope you manage to fill it though. It was lots of fun making it and thank you for introducing me to the fantastic world of FBs!
