  22. Hope you enjoy Suite Scarlett!! πŸ™‚

  23. Great books you got this week. There sure are heaps of them. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

  24. Sounds like your bookshelves are sure groaning now!

  25. what a great haul!!

    pssst I also agree with that Thundercat cover wow although the inside of the book looked amazing!

    I tried today when I went to my local used book store to get Lolita they obviously didn't have it! As well as they didn't have the shining that as well disappointed me.

    Oh and FYI the Anne Rice books are fab ..lots of detail but fab and Also reccomend Queen of the Damn and Tale of the Body Thief after those πŸ™‚

    I have too many in my mailbox this week to possibly take more space up here but definitely posted it on my blog lol
