This was a gift. A friend said that this is what she pictures me like as a child. It's preciuos. I recommend the Fancy Nancy series to anyone looking for a gift for a little girl from about 3 to 10 years old.

I've just purchased this one. Seems like a reference tool and some of the suggestions are a little gross and out of the realm of possibilty in my life. Although, there are a lot of little tips to get youself into saving paper, money and the environme...more

Marie Antoinette by Antonia Fraser

Not artsy like the movie. It actually tells a very descriptive story and at times, I got lost in the "big words." But at least it was complete. The Coppola butchered the story for a film.

Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll
Rate this book
Clear rating
2 stars on account of only reading the first 3 chapters before it was viciously ripped to shreds 3 years ago when my puppy was going through her "chewing" phase. I'd like to finish it though. It seemed steamy.

A classic. My Kitties namesake. I wrestled with calling her Elizabeth Bennett, but Mrs. Darcy was much more pretentious and fancy.

Laugh out loud funny. This isn't a cover to cover situation. This is more of a quick reference at a ladies night, etc. to poke fun at worthless, dirtbag men.

This book is one of those... you know, when you're peering around the self help section, telling yourself you'll just "have a look" and pitty all the poor sappy women consoling themselves on the floor while telling yourself "I'm here because I don't...more

Great airplane book. Read this thing in 8 hours tops. Really enjoyed it. A page turner. If you like Bridget Jones, you'll like all of the trouble this main character gets herself into. It's filled with funny situations and a lot of charm.

Always good to have around, this book is a hand reference for a lot of art that you know, but just can't remember what it's called or who created it. I have small version of this book mabye a 6 inch square at best, but it's a good one to have on hand...more
