Madeleine, I'm a copy cat. Placed an order for the Nicci Gerrard book with Aphrohead, and I'll also be getting the third volume of Ann Cleeves' Shetland quartet.

Wonder if she was named after Anne of Cleves, seems very coincidental.

came across this today, the site offeres free shipping on orders over $35 but thought 5.99 for a new Penman book isn't bad at all!

I've bought online Blood on the Strand by Susanna Gregory and The Bellini Card by Jason Goodwin.

And got in the mail a copy of The Plantagenet Prelude by Jean Plaidy and I'm amazed. This hardcover is 30 years old but its in mint condition. It even smells of print :0 Besides it was cheap :D Merry Xmas to me :)

A couple of books almost fell into my Amazon basket today as well, must be a bug in the system, yeah that's it, a bug.... I managed to fight the bug off this time, but it's very persistent!
