as one so afflicted, here's a group for people who use books for mail art purposes or even just labor under the yoke of book addiction, those yearning masses who amass books intended for reading but which, mostly just pile up.See More

Nancy, you just decided who will get the next piece of colored paper from Dave's Personal Collection of colored papers! I'm in California till June 3 or so but I look forward to getting the lettuce when I return. (sounds like we're talking in gangster code, just like the guvmintl guys).

Hey Nance! Would be thrilled if you pop in at the trashpo facebook group. Any IUOMA as well of course!  Facebook sucks, but I like to think Trashpo is still about the fun and has super nice trashfolks.  I have something to mail you...actually have had for at least a year. I'm very slow about sending these days, but the thought is there and I WILL send soon!!! xoxooxoxoxox
