In My Mailbox (32)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for 9 months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.

**Super Exciting! I just bought my own domain name!!!! I am now at AlisonCanRead.com. If you type in my Blogspot address, it will still take you to the new site. I feel so professional.

-I highly recommend Parajunkee's step-by-step instructions on how to set up your own domain name. It was really easy with her help. Go here to view the instructions.
