I went at a local library book sale on Saturday. I was there towards the end, and they were charging $5 for a plastic bag full of books, or $10 for a box. I restricted myself to a bag, as there is another second hand sale coming up in 2 weeks! Here's what I got:

Louis XIV by Ian Dunlop
The Fugative Queen by Fiona Buckley (Elizabeth I and MQofS mystery)
The Abandoned Woman by Richard Condan (Caroline of Brunswick and George IV)
The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
England's Mistress by Maureen Peters (Elizabeth I)
My Love Must Wait by Ernestine Hill (Matthew Flinders - Aust explorer)
Human Traces by Sebastian Faulk
The White Witch by Elizabeth Goudge (English Civil War)
The Borgia Bride by Jeanne Kalogridis
My Phillippa by Maureen Peters (Phillippa of Hainault)

And I just managed to snag one of Druon's Accursed King's series, The Royal Succession (#4) for $10 on ebay! Now if only the others would fall into my lap at the same price......

Misfit, I absolutely loved Ahab´s Wife, I hope you liked it. It was strongly recommended by Lee Aiken at GR.

At the flea market this weekend, I found two 1960's Gwen Bristow paperbacks. Since the price was right (a quarter for each) I picked them up!

Good job, especially if it's any of the Plantation trilogy books. Those come very dear on Amazon.
