13 Going On 7

    13 Going On 7 (Books)

    Alright, my uncle is coming to visit us from the US again so it's time to order some books for him to bring along. The only problem is that this time he's also bringing me a new laptop, so there's not much space left for the books. I have these 13 books in the wish list currently, and I need to reduce the list to around 6-8. Maybe the rest I will ship normally, but Amazon wants $7 per shipment plus $4 per book (grrr!). I have a few books on the same subject so I'm sure some of them could be discarded.

    So if anyone read any of these books, I wouldn't mind to hear your general opinion (just rate it or something) so I can choose the right ones. And one of you lucky posters will win a FREE email greeting card from ME. :tongue2: No but seriously, any help you can offer would be great.

    All links are to Amazon.com and taken directly from my wish list, no affiliation ID or anything is included.
