Hello, everyone! First time participating in this comm.
(I can't believe it's the holidays again; where did time go?!)

1. Book recommendations or books in .lit, .txt or .pdf format.
There aren't really any genres I dislike, so rec away.

2. Music recommendations or zips/mp3s.

3. LJ friends. If you look at my journal, you'll see that I only use it to community-hop, but I really want to find people who share my interests and stuff. My profile doesn't have a lot of them, but if you look at my icons, you'll get an idea of what I'm into. (movies, videogames, that sort of thing) :)

4. Icons & wallpapers. I change the look of my desktop probably once a day. I make my own stuff too, but I *love* other people's graphics.

5. A donation to the ASPCA or a shelter of your choice.

6. Health and happiness, not only for me but for my family. I know this one can't be granted by anyone, but it's nice to put it out there. :P

7. And finally, the "expensive" part of my wishlist: I'd like an extension on my new paid account or a rename token. I've had this name for so long but I've grown tired of it and want to change it. :)

Happy holidays!

eta: sorry for replying so late to everyone, I hadn't used my computer in a week. I promised a few people icons and stuff, I'm still working on them; will get them to you soon. =)
#2 - Send me your email address and I'll send you some tunage.

#4 - Go to www.wincustomize.com and you can get icons and wallpaper for free. On the right hand side of the screen, you can browse through a bunch of different types of things - icons and wallpaper amongst them. Look carefully at the widgets, rainys, and other fun gadgets. You may find something else you like, too.

Digital Blasphemy is a paid membership art site but has high end wallpaper in their free gallery.

Deviant Art is a lovely site that has a lot of great artwork: http://www.deviantart.com/#order=9&q=wallpaper

Adni18 did so well on wincustomize that they have their (her? his?) own site, full of icons and wallpapers.

Have a Happy Holiday Season!
I'm always up for some new friends... not sure if I'm the type of person you're looking for, but I'm happy to toss you an add, and see how it goes from there! :)
I'd love to give you some music recommendations and a zip file :] What kind of music are you in to?
If you send me an email, I'll send you some music.

Well, I don't know if I'm the type of friend you wanted, but I added you anyway. And hey, we both like Bleach!
I'd be glad to send you a mix of songs if you give me your email address. :)
What kind of icons and such are you after? I make icons and wallpapers and can give it a try.
nothing specific, really, but I like the Metal Gear and Silent Hill series. Or if you have any icon/wallpaper posts (either yours or someone else's) that I could look through for random icons, that'd be great, too. :)
