    That would be interesting. Thanks,

    Is it a comma or a full-stop after the word, ‘interesting’ in the dialogue below? I’m inclined to put a full-stop.

    The librarian asked, “Would you like to borrow a movie CD about the story? The book is currently out on loan.”

    “That would be interesting. Thanks,” said Timmy. OR

    “That would be interesting, Thanks,” said Timmy.

    Thank you!

    I would start the sentence with "Thanks,".

    Re: That would be interesting. Thanks,

    Assuming that you're not going to start the sentence with "Thanks", you need the first sentence.
    The second would require a small 't'. But it doesn't work.
    "OK, I'll take the CD, thanks." does work.
