I have piled up a lot of credits and I wand to do a few RAOK's for some people.  Let me know your circumstances and I will perhaps order a book with my credits to be sent to you.  I'm not talking about some folks who just want a freebie, but there are a lot of people who could use this kind of a RAOK to improve their days.  I did \this before Christmas and sent out about 20-25 books to various people and it worked out well.  Let me know your need and circumstances or someone that you know who needs something that a book might help.   

I have been selling a lot of credits and still could sell some, but I only have 9 more in February before I hit the 50 credit limit per month limitation.  (If you want to get me to the limit, I charge $2.60 each for them.)  But I thought I could do some good for various folks who could use a day-brightener.

Hi, I'm also sending you a PM but I'd like to suggest ordering dictionaries from PBS members and having them send the books to a small school in the Marshall Islands that our fellow PBS member Andrea H. (annei) has mentioned in her RAOK posts since October.     The Marshalls are in the US postal system, and books can be sent media mail but a small customs form will have to be filled out.    By ordering dictionaries from PBS members, you spread your extra credits around and a school benefits. And, we all feel good!  Terry

I was diagnosed with stage two lung cancer the week before Christmas....( nope never a smoker).. And since then have had surgery to remove my left lung and started chemo, which will continue every 21 days for the next year. I love sending and recording books on PBS but sadly I am out of credits as I can no longer get out to mail my books or get mailing supplies. Right now my blood counts are too low from chemo and the doc says I must stay home to avoid germ exposure....plus I feel crappy anyhow. Reading and watching movies are my main ways of passing time. I would appreciate it if you would consider sharing siome credits with me so I can continue to receive some books or even maybe or some movies on DVD swap. Thank younso much...tammie
