Firefly Lane - excellent - I cried the last three chapters, but it was worth it (btw - it was the cover art that caught your eye)

The Guersey Potatoe Pie book - I haven't gotten to the funny parts yet But very good.

Lots of good ones on your list - keep me posted. Also what was the name of the good one that you didn't get for me again??
