The book-buying sickness continues, with the purchases of The Lady Chapel and The Nun's Tale, the second and third books in the Owen Archer series by Candace Robb.

It is indeed a sickness! I unpacked all of my books last night in the new Denver apartment and oh my - I have a lot! They are all in one book case in our spare bedroom which is the first time they have all been in one location. Before, they were spread out in various places and so I never thought I had that many books. My husband just looked at it and shook his head.

I keep telling myself, "I'm helping the economy." I'm so virtuous.

Bought a new biography of Richard III today by Josephine Wilkinson at Amazon UK. It focuses on his youth--looks interesting.

I've ordered "The Complete Pompeii" by Joanna Berry. The first time I tried to order it a few days ago it was cancelled, so I'm trying again through Half.com. It cost a little more then I usually spend on a book but I really want to read it and it doesn't seem to come much cheaper.
