    I've heard of that! Sounds perfect. Thank you!

    Help me enjoy Puerto Rico

    Whoops! But thank you for your details! HI!! I'm sorry I didn't reach out when I was in Perth last August. LOL seriously, when I told my sister she asked "Is that where everyone is dying?" Ok, since my itinerary is set and I'm feeling pretty good, I'm down to turn this into a book rec thread! I need something that I can read all day for a few days. I'm a slow reader, so I'm thinking a one-volume, 700-pageish thing that is engaging, not too thoughtful but not dumb, a little trashy? Doesn't have to be fantasy but I'm open to it. I haven't read any "new" fantasy. How's Black Leopard, Red Wolf? I've got The Priory of the Orange Tree but I had a hard time getting into it but I'm willing to try again. Otherwise I'm thinking of something vaguely along the lines of The Other Boelyn Girl or The Crimson Petal and the White. I've checked out the reading threads in Lit but if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to drop them here.

    Oh farts. Thank you all for your input! I got logged out of the Board and couldn't remember my password, so it took me this long to get back to the thread. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) in the meantime I booked my lodging. The plus side is that I am staying in a beachside-facing villa with a private pool. The downside is that I booked it before I looked at a map. So I am staying in Rincon, about 2.5 hours drive west from San Juan. Initially I didn't think it was a big deal but now everyone is saying to stay in San Juan, so now I'm a bit concerned. Edit: Hi Isk, Tears, and DG!

    Hi board! I've had previous success with you helping me with a trip, so I turn to you again. I am flying into San Juan July 3, leaving July 7. I will be renting a car. Where shall I stay? I'm open to a two hour drive from San Juan. I'm looking for solitude and peace. It would be cool if there is a town nearby that I could walk/Uber. Ideally I would have a balcony with a view of the ocean or a rain forest. My main interests are relaxation and food. I don't care about adventure. I'm a solo female traveler who just wants to chill and eat. Any suggestions?

    I would love to have 5 peashooters and like 20 high fives. I hand out +1's faster than Frosty starts threads.

    That's actually one of the options in the poll, if you select "maybe."

    It's interesting to see how this rating system is being used in the book threads...it seems to be a very useful tool to express support or dismay, and I haven't seen one boarder bitch about it yet (although I have only read, like, three book threads so I might be way off base there). Come to think of it, it seems to be used pretty well in the Entertainment threads I visit. Is it being used in the sports threads, and if so, have there been any meltdowns over it? I wonder if the results of this poll would be different if it was stickied across the board, rather than just in GC?

    Frosty, can you please do something about the way you quote people in your posts? Italics, or something? It would make it a little easier to try to figure out what you are trying to say, and it is kind of rude to just copy and paste someone else's words into your post without giving any sort of credit or letting us know who the fuck you are addressing.

    How do I get the votes that I wasted on posts that have been deleted back? Or do I have to buy more from Relic?
