In My Mailbox #4-2011 otherwise known as I heart RHCB

Thanks to The Story Siren for holding this weekly meme so I can thank the wonderful people who feed my book love *addiction*

For Review:

For asacutie:

For asastar:

For asacheekymonkey:

asacheekymonkey would like a sequel to Lily Alone called Lily Together if you could pass that onto Jacqueline Wilson please [ : D ]
As you are probably aware my husband has been unemployed for nearly 2 years now, as you can imagine money is very tight, so for the girls to have these books was like an extra Christmas for them.   

This was the one book I picked up for myself:

J pilfered this one from the school pile - it will be going to school when he has read it

The pile of books in RHCB
I have already taken the books into the school library. They included:


I have had a pupil ask me for The Spooks Bestiary since the beginning of September and I haven't been able to get it for him. I took it in last Monday and had to put it on the library system immediately for him. He is one happy student [ : D ] 

These are  the Thank You cards my girls wrote - asacheekymonkey has declared her love for Jacqueline Wilson in hers.
The card in the centre was made by a group of students in my library and has been signed by them, they are so absolutely thrilled with the books.
I will be popping them in the post tomorrow, thank you again RHCB you are truly awesome [ : D ]
