Happy new year!

do you still have A Year in Merde? That sounds like a good book and could i borrow it? (unless you hated it and won't recommend it at all...then i would trust your judgement)
also i know you used to have Love, Rosie (I know because I borrowed it before....heh) anyways, could i borrow it again? I really want to reread it.

Yes fosure but it's unfortunately locked away in da Swiss land. I will give it to you in NY. :P It's pretty amusing indeed.
And yeah totally on the Love, Rosie - just have to find it. Remind me though because as you know I fail in that department, lolz.

I've read them all and they are excellent. I can't say much for most of the artists though. I own 5 or 6 of the graphic novels, if you can order them from a library, do it. :D

I remember seeing "A Year in the Merde" at the bookstore and I thought it sounded interesting. Is it any good?

But hey, at least you got a little more than halfway through the 50 books per year challenge, right?

Hellllllllo my dear friend, tis late late Claire! (Sorry, gah!) But yes it is an alright, fairly amusing book, though the narrator can get exceptionally annoying at times. I'll be bringing it home for Katie to read so you may as well if you like.
And yes indeed, it's an improvement on last year!
