Ah Sure did come on mah own accord....
And I'm definitly interested in this ickle contest.
Though I couldn't really remember any books I pressingly wanted to own, I found a couple box sets that are way below price ranges...Light reads, but good none-the-less, as I can't remember any others...Oh, and one book that I really love...... :upset:
This looks like a lot, but it's actually only three....And I know the rules...I'm just keeping my options open....:)

So there's a pretty interesting price diff, but MZ said US, so I'm basing my choices off the US prices.

We're well aware of that, Franpa. I'll have to ask if you'll be so kind as to move your pinky a centimeter or so, and turn off your caps lock for us. That'd be grand.

This does not bode well for Franpa's future here. :suspicious:

robhofen: Sorry, but you don't meet the requirements for this contest as you had only around 30 posts when it was started. Maybe next time, though.

Nothing like the offer of something free to bring old members out of the woodwork huh? :laugh:

I would assume so, as the winners haven't been announced yet. xD

Yea I'll wait until sometime tomorrow (Sunday) and then lock this post, and choose the two winners. :) BTW, I sent out an email to (former) regulars who hadn't posted for the contest yet, telling 'em to get in here and post (ex. moo, Amro; above) ... and hopefully come back to the forums permanently ;)

I'll come back. I got in a tizzy with being in a play and work and all. Now that the play is over, thank god, I should visit more often, but no promises. Oh yea, good luck everyone.
