In My Mailbox (3)

This stupid video fought me all day long. First the camera wouldn't record, then it would download, so I re-recorded the video and it was still unhappy so I changed SD cards. Finally, I thought it was done and I tried to upload it to YouTube and... They've stopped accepting videos over 10 minutes. Gah! It was a mere 30 seconds over so I had to rerecord it AGAIN! You get the idea. It's been rough.

Anyway, it's a little long, but that's because there is an astronomical amount of books. On with the show...
