Actually, I've made that threat to several of my bookish friends. That's probably not the greatest way to hold onto my friends eh? Threaten to steal from them? Hey, book thievery happens every day. When you ask to borrow a book from someone, you should just ask if you can keep it, because you know you ain't giving back that book. Giving back books is hard.
Oh and she collects amazing dolls as well, and has them artfully arranged amongst her books.
And see her Irish folk tale collection?? She has an Irish folktale collection!
'Alice in Wonderland' shelf, complete with matching dolls! I'm losing my mind! Her dolls match her books! This is so fab! And rad! It's radderfab.
'The Birds' Christmas Carol' (which is supposed to be amazing) and a Horatio Hornblower book!
'Socks' is a great and fabulous book.
'Raggedy Ann in Cookie Land' by Johnny Gruelle. Just finished it! Do you have any of the original Raggedy Ann and Andy series books? I've mentioned them before, they are so darling, so sweet, and just right for kids in grades 1-3. The Raggedys have fine adventures in various magical lands that always seem to have hot dog trees, chocolate ice cream mud puddles and cream puff bushes. Don't read these books if you're hungry. But you must read them, they are the most sweetly old fashioned and wonderful books ever.
'American Girl' books with Julia! I spy one in the book pile up above.)
