Hi Pam,

I'm getting into the spirit of things. I sent Alpine Branch:

Murder at a Vineyard Mansion (Martha's Vineyard Mysteries)
Three Centuries of American Poetry: 1620-1923
Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry: Breeds, Care, Health (God knows the Storey's go over well.)

I know Alpine really needs the help right now, the budget cuts hit them especially hard.

I also sent Jacumba (another small branch in need)

The South Beach Diet: The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss
Eragon (Inheritance, Book 1)

It somewhat defeats the purpose of a bookdrive, but I sent Borrego
three DVDs, A Lion in Winter, White Christmas, and Clash of the Titans, because I know how important their DVD collection is to keeping the public coming in the doors.

On a side note, thank you again for doing this. My mother is the Director of Acquisitions who wrote to you. Words cannot express how excited she was when I showed her what was going on. She was doing a little dance around the living room and exclaiming "all right!" every few minutes. The SDCL Amazon Wishlist project was actually inspired by coverage of your bookdrive for Oakland last year. They are so happy to see all the donations coming in.
