R$ 15,00 no Colbert Report!

Thaddeus Blanchette

Ooh! You've read Cryptonomicon! Cool!

You ever read Snow Crash? Long live Hiro Protagonist!


2c. Eat, Pray, Love.

Nao moro no Rio, mas pago envio para minha cidade.
Vale lembrar que se enviar pelo Correio como Registro Mòdico sai mais barato do que PAC ou envio normal.

Rio Gringa

Valeu pela dica!


Gringa, off topic, but since you are leaving and havent visited Rio Grande do Sul, here are some pictures of Gramado I took this last Eastern. They turned out good, so I thought I could share.

they were posted on this forum, there are photos on page 1 and 2 of the thread

hope you like


2c. Eat, Pray, Love.
R$25 (sorry Mariel :)

Rachel, I am not sure how to pay for it, since I am currently in the US. But if I win the bid we could figure out a way.

By the way, I really recommend wathing the TED talk from Elizabeth Gilbert (author of "Eat, Pray, Love"). TED is a Technology,Entertainment, and Design invitation only conference. A lot of the talks are online and are only 18 minutes long.

Elizabeth's is about "a different way to think about creative genius": http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius.html


2i.The House of the Spirits. R$15

I live in Europe, in Portugal. But if you agree I can pay shipping fees and any fees incurred from money transfer/Paypal.


2k. Slumdog Millionaire (Q & A) - R$ 15,00

-Livin' in SP, will pay for shipping :)

BTW, Hi there Rachel!
I've been reading your blog for a while, but never commented. It's nice to see another point of view of the things we brazilian ppl think it's "normal".
Hope I can still read these kind of stuff :)
Congrats for the wedding, and my best wishes!!

OK... I am in for:

10 on the Bastar of Istambul
20 on the Colbert Report DVD
15 on the Cryptonomicon

Ignore the fact I am in Africa :) I´ll pay shipping to Fortaleza :)

Jim Shattuck

Sorry to hear you are leaving - good luck back in the States.

I'd like to bid on:

1b.The Age of American Unreason, by Susan Jacoby; R$15
1d. TESOL/TEFL textbook; R$10
2p. The Maytrees, by Annie Dillard; R$7

I'm right here in Niteroí and could come by on Friday during the day (I have a student at 6p.m. back in Niteroí)


João Marcelo

Put me up for The Sex Life of Cannibals too... R$ 10!
