Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take some time before I can review it. I am now looking to review adult fiction and self-help books instead of young adult fiction because I have grown out of it. If you are to request a review for either adult fiction or self-help, I will more likely to give it a shot.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, I may post a review. Thank you for understanding.

All mangas this week!

When I hauled out the package from my mailbox that contained The Ghost in the Shell and Akira, I honestly thought that there were six mangas within. I got so excited and when I opened it, I was shocked. They were two huge mangas! I think I could have fainted because with school taking away ALL of my time from reviewing, I am expected to get through these two chunky mangas. But, I shall try!

Anyway, I have received an email from Lesley that her site Tactical Urban Gears is having a contest to win an Apple iTouch, iPhone, and 10 consolation prizes! You don't need to purchase anything! It ends on January 25th! Click the banner below to enter! (And remember to list me as your referral!)

These are a couple of the shirts offered in the store! Ain't it cool?
