Bummer that you needed a replacement partner, but super bonus to get Phizzychick as your replacement. What an excellent bundle of book-lovin' goodness! Love the bookmarks and the painting!

It was a happy ending afterall Cheesy (and I did tell you that you were lucky to have Phizzychick as a replacement partner! Wink )

That Angel Wing book looks really neat (as with the rest of them. Wow - books galore! ) and all the crafted stuff is pretty darn awesome  Cheesy

I've read The Ladies of Grace Adieu and it's wonderful!  Also don't miss her other book, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.  I think it's better than Harry Potter:  more intellectual, denser, darker, and definitely not for children.  What a great package, Phizzychick!!

I tried reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. The beginning seemed a little... long winded? I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try again sometime.

I've finished reading Automated Alice, and it was really nifty. I recommend it to anyone who likes rather disconnected books. It's captured the Alice in Wonderland feeling well, but it's darker, and more... well, I suppose the genre "cyber punk" (as noted on the front cover) kind of suits it.

I'm also half way through Walking On Glass, which I'm finding both funny and intriguing. It's a story split into three so far completely disconnected stories, so far all of them being different genres altogether. Youth/romance vs psychopath vs Philosophical Fantasy setting.

Best quote in Walking On Glass so far, good because the characters say none of this in an attempt to be funny:
"What is your name?"
"Steven"
"That is your first name?"
"How many do you think I've had?"

I've started the Discworld series! But, I don't think I should read it right before bed. I need to concentrate a bit more. I find myself flipping back and re-reading Wink

Hiiiiii! I recieved a wonderful package from my swapangel, Sherrie B, SD earlier this week (sorry for not putting up pics til now!!)

It was such a lovely suprise.... right....
Here's the book bag....

It's HUGE and can fit absolutely EVERYTHING I will ever need on one of my sketchy-reading-in-the-countryside-photo days... so perfect for me! Cheesy It's so sturdy too, and I love the pattern of the fabric! (Thankie! - but sorry the pic is on it's side... I'm not very good with this technology thing, and photobucket seems to be beyond me today!)

i got spoilt to 3 books!

The two kids books have such lovely illustrations (I'm a struggling illustrator, so I collect children's books) - I especially love the Frog and Toad one, which is just my style! Cheesy The sci-fi novel sounds really interesting too - I don't tend to read much scifi, so it can broaden my horizons a bit ^_^

Bookmark:

crocheted - a skill that I have no patience to acquire, but I am in awe of anyone who can! Cheesy

...earlier when I said I was spoilt, I wasn't joking - she also popped in some extra goodies...

The sheep tape measure is superb... and the scarf is very apt for our ahem...glorious British summers... the sketchpad is already being used, along with the pastels too - and my boyfriend has pinched the CD to listen to on his way to work this mornin!

Thank you so much for being a great swapangel, Sherrie! Everything's great... ^___^
