Hi Starletta,
On Monday, I'll have Carol make this heading it's own "sticky" thread so it stays up. I haven't sent you the email yet because we had a little complication with it getting stuck in our server each time we tested it. Soon! And I'll get you that list of Merit Badge books this weekend.

Star, I brought a box of books to the post office this morning. I have another box ready to go and I'm working on a few more. I will probably send them out one or two boxes at a time. I mailed them book rate, but I was told that you should have them within a week.

Sorry it's been a little while since I've posted. Between the online course I'm taking and the massive snowstorm we just had and more snow and below zero temps on the way, I've been a bit preoccupied! Star, I just wanted to let you know that I just packaged up two more boxes of books. I hope to get them to the post office this weekend. That is, if the weather lets me! Otherwise, I'll get them off to you as soon as I can once the snow decides to take a break!

BTW, it will take a lot for postage to send books out to all of us that want to borrow books. How should we pay you for postage? Something to think about. Hugs, Brenda
