OK, after a slow DEC, suddenly 6 days ago I started getting requests again--- then WHAM, today I ended up mailing out 12 books in 4 packages and the cost was under $12.  Guess everybody got credits for Christmas!

Yay Jeanne!  I noticed some good movement after Christmas last year (member posting Christmas gifts after reading?).  Seems a bit early, but go you!

Yay!  I've had a few of my books that have been on my shelf for a while requested also--not as many as you though!!

I've also had some of my wishes granted that I've been sitting at #1 for quite a while for!  I guess people are getting more active after the holidays.

Yup, Since Christmas I have mailed over 35 books...today is the first day that I haven't had at least 5 requests before noon!

I wonder if being snowed in has helped move books?  I got hit more this year and earlier than usual, too.  Usually, the Christmas season seems slow.  I was shocked to take my account off hold and find myself with a bunch of requests.  Was wonderful though!

Lucky! Nothing after Christmas for me, except for a wish listed book being posted.
