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
Maindonald & Braun
Heiberger & Holland
