    What is an Uppercase Box?!?!

    I love that you get picture books for review ... that'd be so much fun!

  4. I just recently found out about Uppercase. Do you like it? I'm considering signing up but the price is a bit much. Is there opportunity to delay shipment for months at a time?

    I can't wait to own a hardcover copy of Snow Like Ashes! Have a great week!

  5. N'aw, Happy (Belated) Birthday to your boy. :) I really enjoyed Snow Like Ashes, it was like Throne of Glass for bits, but still loved it and can't wait for the next one. Happy reading!

    Here's mine
