    What an abundance of wonderful stuff! I particularly like the elephant sticky notes. I have to wait to buy Lost Lake (e-book format) until I get my next pay packet - so sad.

    1. Fran, I always pass my hardcovers along to someone else who wants to read them -- how about I send you my copy when I finish it? That will be tomorrow, btw. :)

      That would be beyond wonderful. Hardback books are very expensive in the UK so I always have to wait for the paperback edition to come out or buy the e-book. I much prefer the paperback but sometimes its another 6-10 months before its published and if you're waiting for a book it can be way too long, hence the e-book purchase. You devoured this one so fast I can only assume its up to her usual excellent standards.

  2. I'm with Fran. I like the elephant sticky notes. Grumpy cat is cute, too.

    1. The elephant sticky notes are mine -- too perfect for my absent-minded guy -- but Grumpy Cat is heading your way.
