You are welcome! I've seen a real outpouring of love for Sweethearts all around the blogosphere. Well-deserved. Congratulations.

Ooh, enjoy! Leftovers is very good. It leaves a mark.

79 books?! I know you read a lot, but your book tallies never fail to impress me!

I loved quite a few of the same books you did in January; I'll have to check out the others.

How did I miss that there's a new Babymouse out??? I have been out of touch. My, my.

Don't worry, though. I put it on order straight away.
