This isn't a rant against RCs or PBS - I loooove PBS and don't mind RCs. I have one against "currently smoking households" and I'm glad for it. It's just a bit crummy b/c I haven't had a WL offer for a little while and I'm #1 on a bunch, and I got one today, and then it got kicked for smoking. Again, I don't mind- I just ordered a rug hook kit off eBay and when I opened it, it was a giant POOF of smoke in my face and the whole thing reeked. I am HAPPY to not get books this way. I know eventually my # will come up, but I just LOVE seeing the WL offers in my box since it's a rarity. Anyway, I'm just kinda whining a little bit! :-)

Aww, it wasnt for The Accidental Demon Slayer, was it?  Cause if so, that was me :(.    I'm sorry it happens!!  I have one against former library books and have had 3-4 turned down for me too, so I understand.

No, but you're sweet. It was for "Tan Lines." I'm still first in line. And no, don't even apologize if it was you, you have every right to turn them down, and I'm glad esp if it was from someone who smoked a lot.

I dont smoke, but I live with two people who are VERY heavy smokers, and because of that, I cant smell it.  My parents were heavy smokers all through the time I was growing up and I think it de-sensitized my nose for good when it comes to that lol.  I can only smell it if I sit in a chair where my stepdad has been sitting for hours with ciggarettes.  Isnt that weird? I keep my books away from them but I still dont run the risk.  I hope you get your book!!  :)

Double ARGHHHHHHHHHH! It just happened again! Twice in one day! I guess I should be grateful that I have 14 books on the way and haven't been refused in quite a while. Yes, I will try to think of that!
