hey everybody!! i bet you thought this swap was over already.... but nooooo
here is the incredible stack of literary goodness delivered to me today from tattooedcrafter...


 (sorry, i didn't realize i took such crap photos...)
that's 14 books there, folks!!
these are authors i know nothing about...
Ann Rule - Heart Full of Lies
Patricia Cornwell - All that Remains
Danielle Steele - Daddy
Emilie Richards- Prospect Street
Jonathan Kellerman - The Clinic
John Rickards - Winter's End
Anne Stuart - The Fall of Maggie Brown
Carla Neggars - Cold Ridge
Ethan Black - Irresistible
Anne Stuart - Still Lake
Ann Rule - A Rage to Kill
and 3 of my all time faves -
James Frey - My Friend Leonard
Raymond Chandler - The Simple Art of Murder
Jane Austen - Emma

But wait, there's more --
here is the crafty goodness she also produced...

(again, sorry about the crap photography)

i got an awesome crochet bag
a book journal in my favorite color pink!!
with lovely handpainted decorations
and a whole bunch of book thongs!! (or one really big one, depending on how you look at it...)

wowee!!
but wait -- that's not all

she also sent a book for each of my three little monkeys!!
these are so specific to their most favorite interests!!
the manga Love, Hina is for my anime-infatuated teenage son
the babysitters club is for my precocious 6 yo dd
and the robot book is PERFECT for my 9 yo ds, a budding inventor!!!

it might have taken a little while, but it was soo worth the wait!!
thanks tattooedcrafter!!!

Holy cow! That's a great lot of books! Worth the wait, most definitely... I love the crocheted bag, too.
