Elizabeth was going to send me back Nick and Norah, but it occurred 
to me that other people in the UK might have heard a bit about it and 
be curious to try it and see what they think.  (I'd be happy to send 
it to anyone not in the UK or US too, but then it should come back to 
me first. )

It'd be a relief to have somewhere to send it actually, as I wasn't 
that keen to want to keep it, and it's a bit of a question about 
where it could be given and how to keep it in the relatively 
age-appropriate place.

>If you send me your snail mail address, I'll put N&N in the post.
>Thanks again.
