Change the last number to the corresponding month so http://www.goodreads.com/new_releases/2011/7 will show July's releases.

For Amazon, you can also use http://www.jungle-search.com/US/booksearch.php to narrow down forthcoming releases to one month (and lots of other advanced search options). For example, here's Historical Fiction releases for July: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?node=10 ... irect=true
Jungle Search has options for other countries too - just click the flags at the top.[/quote]

Thanks so much Mythica. This will make my life a lot easier! I was always making lists and losing them. :) :)

Ooh lovely. I've read the Far Pavilions just once over 10 years ago. Maybe I should do a re-read now a new edition is coming out.

India. Nobody does it like MM Kaye, but I'll warn ya - they are HUGE. The Far Pavilions was so big at over 1,000 pages the book clubs broke it down into two volumes.

Moppet, I've read it at least three times now. Ash and Juli. Sigh...

It's great to see books like these being republished (in September according to Amazon). Mind you, I do like my old copies that I've had for years but still look in excellent condition. :) Actually my copy of Shadow of the Moon looks like a trade paperback, it's quite big.

They're lovely covers. I think TFP was recently serialised on Radio 4.

Oh, good to know. The Far Pavilions is in my HF hall of fame. Despite its size, I've read it 3 times. It was one of those books that I wanted to re-read and savour the moment I'd finished it.
