Wow, after reading CB's list I feel quite restrained for only buying one book today - Bernard Cornwell's latest Saxon Story- "The Burning Land", ordered from BD Oops, forgot "Banquo's Son" by T K Roxborough, which I picked up at a chain store at lunchtime, being intrigued by the idea of a story set ten years after the events in Shakespeare's "Macbeth" - remember the witches prophesied that Banquo's son would become king--

Now that's a hard question because she's hiding the cover very well.
I think it's something "spicy" :D

Today I bought three books. An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon (not even reduced in price, but luckily someone else was in effect paying for these), Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes and The Girl who Kicked a Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson.

I've been a really good girl, I haven't bought any books in weeks however I feel an itch coming on so maybe I'll get lucky and find something soon that catches my eye.

Some Other Eden by Natasha Farrant, not really HF, more a family saga.

Diamondlil, Brightest Star is one of my library reservations. I am waiting for it impatiently! Only one person ahead of me.

Normally I am anticipating the next Keyes, but I had no idea this one was even coming out!

Hornet's Nest is winging its way to me across the Atlantic -- I hope & trust. Along with a cluster of other pre-orders.

Pre-ordered, for my Kindle, the new Diane Haeger book and the next Ruth Rendell Inspector Wexford. Both out & Kindle-able next Tuesday.

From Amazon.fr, the next volume in the Sarah Frydman saga des Medicis, which is turning out to be extraordinarily good. Richly deserves a translation.
