...all (and I mean ALL) seem to have RC's!

I posted a bunch of manga today, most of it wishlisted.  I mailed 14 books today, and of that 14, 12 had RC's about wanting new books, no smoking, etc.  I was amazed!  I mean, I run into RC's here and there, once in a while, but 12 out of 14?  Could that be a record? LOL

My foster son and DD wanna be husband, are both into these.  They aren't obsessed but have friends that are.

I don't even know what manga is.  Is it a genre?

Donna, Magna is a graphic novel developed in Japan.  Basically a comic book geared to adult audiences.

Well, I knew what ganga AND manga was...I always suspected that brilliance lurked just beneath my bad grammar, horrible spelling, and complete inability to understand math.

LOL@Valli...Oh, and Valli, my kitty still LOVES  Let Me In.  I need to post some pictures of how I find that book each morning!

I've come to the conclusion that manga readers are either a) collectors, so they want really nice copies or b) slobs who don't take care of their books, and people have been seriously burned on their manga swaps here!  I continue to be amazed at the number of RC's that keep popping up.  Of course, I've accepted every one so far;  my books are always lovely.  angel

Vicky, Most of the people that read these tend to collect so the condition is very important.  That might be why the requests are so specific
