"Nineteen Minutes" Bookring

Connor and I stopped at Borders this evening after dinner, and I was unable to resist the display right in the front of the store of Jodi Picoult's new book, "Nineteen Minutes." I figure it will be a while before I could get it from the library, so I went ahead and bought it, thinking that I could make it worthwhile by reading it, and then sharing it with others. Since I know there are a bunch of people here on my f-list who enjoy Picoult's books, I thought I'd start a bookring. So, if you'd like to read this book after I've finished it (which will probably happen within the next week), leave a comment here, and I'll put together a list. Just let me know where you live (city and state, or country if you're outside the U.S.), and if you're willing to ship it only within your own country, or if you don't mind shipping internationally, if necessary. (Even though it's a hardcover book, domestic postage shouldn't cost much, since it can be sent media mail within the U.S; international shipping will be a bit more).

I'll set up the ring in BookCrossing, but if you're not a member of that website, no worries - you can still be part of the ring. Just leave a comment if you're interested in reading this book! :)
(This website has a synopsis, including some things which seem spoilerish to me, so I haven't read the entire website yet).

ETA: Oh, and in case there's anyone who doesn't know what a bookring is, the idea is that the book will get passed from person to person. I'll read it, and then mail it to the first person on the list. After that person reads it, he or she will ship it to the next person, and so forth. At the end, I might ask that the last person return it to me, or maybe just wild release it somewhere - in other words, leave it in a public place as a "surprise" for a stranger to find. :) For more info on this sort of thing, check out BookCrossing:
