  1. Hi LadyTink!

    Great library loot! I love a good day at the library -- I just hate to give the books back!

    Dottie :)

  2. I do hope you like the Sugar Queen as much as I did. Enjoy.

  3. hi Tink.. oh wow! I haven't seen that cover to James and the Giant Peach since my 43 yr old son was oh.. maybe 7ish?! LOL.. I remember reading that and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to both my sons..

  4. I'm glad you've gotten James and the Giant Peach in your library pile! Happy reading all your books!

    I just got back from the library today, too, and borrowed three Malay books. :D

  5. generation dead is one I'll read this week!

  6. Lady Tink your blog is beautiful and I too love Dahl - read them to the kids (Matilda was our fav). have just recently been enjoying his adult short stories (which are so worth a read)

  7. I have to agree, it doesn't matter what else is going on-we still have to have our books! The Sugar Queen is great. I hope you'll like it.

  8. Saw the decorating one - a new house is so exciting - a blank canvas for your taste ( okay mayber your husband's too!)

  9. I've The Sugar Queen in my pile too! Enjoy your books! :)

  10. I love the J.D. Robb series! Enjoy Glory in Death :)

  11. My Blog 2.0 (Dottie): Isn't that the truth! I feel funny buying books I've already read but sometimes I just have to do it when they were particularly good.

    Scrap Girl: Hey, thanks for the great review on it. That's why I picked it up :)

    DesLily: I just love this cover! I believe it's the same one as on the audiobook I'm picking up read by Jeremy Irons.

    Alice Teh: Yep, and it's all your fault... well at least partly lol. Thanks for making me pick it up and I hope you enjoy your Malay books.

    Lenore: I may just end up reading it soon too.

    Wendy: Aw thank you. I've only read three of Dahl's books and since I'd like to eventually read a biography about him I thought it would be a good idea to start reading all his books.

    Dar: I hope I'll really like it too lol. I also hope I'll have time to read it!

    Luanne: I'm just loving my new house though all this cleaning and stuff is a pain lol.

    Naida: Thanks, I will.

    Melody: Hope we enjoy it! Thanks :)

    Samantha: I've only read the first one but I really liked it so I need to read the rest of them before I accidentally read any spoilers lol.

  12. looks like a great trip to the library!

  13. Looks like you'll be busy! ;) My daughter and I read James and the Giant Peach last year and enjoyed it. Happy reading!
