  1. Thank you, tanabata, for not one, not two, but three books!!!

  2. I don't know why I didn't sign up for the challenge before. I fully intend to read Murakami this year -- twice, in fact! Thanks for reminding me to sign up. :)

  3. Oh, and congrats to all winners! Especially to litera who won a lovely book (I shed a few tears while reading -- getting sentimental like that every once in a while ;)

    And yes, I *am* a little jealous of Anastasia who won Miyuki Miyabe ;)
