I'd say the situation is actually the opposite. Anyway, the recent book by Brian Everitt and Torsten Hothorn (A handbook of statistical analyses using R. Chapman & Hall) is an excellent (and affordable) place to start. (I think that this book's context emphasizes that it is stats with R as the language: Everitt has (co)authored a bunch of others in other languages ---SAS, Stata, SPSS, etc).

Of course, there are many others that probably deserver a place on your (or your library's) shelves:

P. Dalgaard's
MASS
Maindonald & Braun
Heiberger & Holland
etc

HTH, R.
