      First time ordering from the book depository today, bought 11 in one shot. Hope my books will arrive safe and sound. and of course hope that I'll have something like beginners luck and win this Nintendo 3ds, cause I've always.... always wanted one but couldn't get one because I spend too much of my allowance on books.

      Don"t know the answer to the question about Carol (I'd guess at Countdown) but I'd definitely like the intendo for my nephew who lives in Africa as I'm visiting home after 16 years absence and I've been saving for the trip these past-4 years!

      Really great prize. Hmm, if I won, could I keep it, or would I feel the need to be generous? That is my dilemma
