Thanks Toni,
I looked up "Knitters handy book of patterns" and I requested it from our library. There is also "Knitters handy book of sweater patterns" which I also requested!

Thanks for the new book ideas!

Anna said...

I'm waiting for Girls in Trucks. Hope you enjoy your new books!

Thanks Everyone.

Bermudaonion - ha Dexter is training us to. I got the books for reinforcement. Dexter is coming along naturally as a good dog. We are taking him to the dog park and he is a bit social butterfly. I would like him to know that coming when I call him is NOT an option. So I got some books to get some tips.

Wendy.. my library had both books also. It is a handy little book. Let me know what you think and if you knit anything.

Anna - I can't wait to read Girls in Trucks. Looks like a quick nice read.

Ti said...

You got a lot of books about dogs. Dexter must be in training :)

I think you will enjoy Drood in audio. It was a little on the long side in print.

Girls in Trucks sounds like a great book, and I love the cover. I can't wait to get my audio of Drood that I won from your blog! he he

Serena said...

I'm hoping that Girls in Trucks comes my way this week!

Toni said...

I have to note that I put in Drood on the way to work today and I LOVE it... The book was big and engrossing and the audio is just awesome too. I just am really caught up in Drood! :)

Wrighty said...

Oooh, good books! I want to read Girls in Trucks and I loved Racing in the Rain! I got to do an online club with the author and it was so awesome. He was great and his wife joined us too. My favorite club ever. Hope you enjoy it too.
