Wow! Thanks for this Anna! Although I've never read Antonia Forest, there 
are other books there that are making come up with even more ingenious 
justifications as to why I can afford books on my very limited budget! And 
of course, seeing as everyone is raving on about Antonia Forest I'm even 
starting to wonder if I need to eat over the next few weeks...

Out of curiosity, have the males on the list read any of the books/authors 
published by this company? Or have people's brothers/friends etc? I was 
just wondering if they truly were "girl's books".
