I just found a copy of Josephine Tey's Daughter of Time for free on the curb! I know it has quite a bit of pro-Richard bias, but I still really love reading it from time to time.

Author of the Twilight of Avalon trilogy
new book: Dark Moon of Avalon, coming Sept 14 from Simon &Schuster (Touchstone)

I know most of you are aware of http://www.paperbackswap.com but I finally ventured there and I'm amazed at how easy and wonderful it is. I listed 20 books and already 6 are spoken for.

I ordered from them today:
My Ladies Crusade by Annette Motley (a suggestion from EC)
Road to Avalon by Joan Wolfe
The Crystal Heart by Katherine Deauxville

now granted you are not going to find SKP or EC books there but plenty of others.

Put them on your wishlist though - they do get posted occasionally (I've gotten 2 EC books that way). I've had books on my wishlist for a couple of years that have just recently been posted. Since many books have several editions, if you have the room on your wishlist, include as many editions as possible.

As for my own shopping, my copy of Emma Campion's The King Mistress finally arrived from The Book Depository.

I ordered the first three books of the Harry Potter series, I never really planned on reading them but someone at work said I would enjoy them and that they're no-where near like the movies so I thought I'ld get started.
