  2. Sally and Andy Pessin says:

    Thanks!

    Sally and Andy

  4. phillip singerman says:

    magazines have to be sent directly to him from the publisher? cannot be re-sent?
    How can i find out if he wants National Geographic and the New York Review of Books

    • ctboland says:

      Phillip, Magazines can be re-sent. If you choose to go that route, no more than 10 magazines are allowed in one package and the following must be stated on the outside of the package: “AUTHORIZED BY BUREAU POLICY”. If you elect to subscribe to NatGeo for Courtney, please let me know so I can add it to the Publications list. As far as NY Review of Books, Courtney is receiving the NY Times Daily & Sunday version so he will have access to the Book Review section.

  5. Dorrance says:

    I just had “Political Psychology: Situations, Individuals, and Cases” – David P. Houghton and “My Fall From Grace: City Hall To Prison Walls” – James J. Laski Jr. sent to Courtney directly.

  6. Ruth Alicastro says:

    I would like to send Courtney Helen Keller–The Story of My Life and also Charles Bukowski–Tales of Ordinary Madness if they are not taken already. Please advise. Thank you.

  7. ctboland says:

    Hi Ruth, I just received notice earlier this morning that yes, “Fall from Grace” has been sent. Keep trying?! :~)

  8. Eli Wagner says:

    I would like to send Courtney some books — but I am wondering if I should wait a couple of weeks so that he gets through everything else that been sent so far. I understand he has limited storage, so I am wondering if we should give him some time to read through what he has now so that he can donate those publications to the library. Any idea how he is doing on space right now?

    • ctboland says:

      Eli, I think your plan to wait a couple weeks is a good one. I know that just yesterday 4 books were ordered for him. In the meantime, and as Rebecca talks to Courtney, items may be added to his Wish List. Thanks for dropping by and of course, for thinking of Courtney.

  9. Laura Schussler says:

    I would like to send “Astronomy for Dummies.” If it has not already been sent, could you please cross it off the list? If it has, could you please let me know before I purchase it? Thank you for organizing this! It’s a great idea.

  10. Larry Zysman says:

    Flo and I would like to send “Big Bang” by Simon Singh – a paperback.

    Thanks,
    Flo & Larry

  11. Susan Fanaroff says:

    I would like to send the book, the Year of Living Biblically. Should I wait a little while or is he up for another book?

  12. LEI says:

    I would like to send the following two books:
    “Tim Laurence – The Hoffman Process: The World-Famous Technique That Empowers You to Forgive Your Past, Heal Your Present, and Transform Your Future”; and
    “David R. Harkins – Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior”. Do you know if they have been sent. If not, please cross them off the list. Thank you

    • ctboland says:

      Dear LEI,

      You are free to send both books. I have crossed both of them off the list. Many thanks for thinking of Courtney.

      With kind regards,
      Colleen

      • LEI says:

        Thank you. When I was ordering these two books, I came across one more good book “Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create what you Want in Your Life (Gawain, Shakti)” so I ordered that one too. Please add that to your Books list. thanks again !!

      • ctboland says:

        Great, I have added it to his books list.

  13. Paula Korn says:

    I would like to pick up Courtney’s subscription to Space News. Please let me know if his current subscription is still heading to expire Sept 2011.
    Thanks – Paula

    • ctboland says:

      Hi Paula and thanks for thinking of Courtney. I have deleted Space News from his wish list. You are free to order. When you get confirmation of your order, would you please let me know the new expiration date?
      Fair greetings from Upstate NY.

    • ctboland says:

      Hello Paula, I see that Courtney’s Space News subscription is due to expire in September 2012. I am wondering, were you planning on renewing this subscription for him again or should I add it to his Wish List, giving someone else an opportunity to get it for him? I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know what you’re thinking.
