We made our regular bi-weekly trip to Costco today and I picked up two Bernard Cornwell books: his new one "Agincourt" and "Sword Song" which is the last one (so far) in his Saxon series. I haven't read any Cornwell, but I did already have the first book in his Saxon series in my TBR pile. Husband of course asked his perennial question, "Do you really need those books?" and I ignored him as usual.

Lucky you - having the Saxon series to look forward to. That was my first exposure to Cornwell, and he's now a favorite author. I loved both the Saxon series and the Grail Quest series. I've just started The Winter King, book 1 of the Warlord trilogy.

Bernard Cornwell has said that the 5th novel in the Saxon series (as yet untitled) should be due out October this year (Jan 2010 in the US). I was interested to read that he is planning another novel (like "Redcoat") set in the American Revolutionary War period.

Picked up Mary Renault's "Alexander" trilogy (3-in-1 book: Fire From Heaven, The Persian Boy, Funeral Games ) for a song from an online auction . Will be good to have that in my collection.

Another Amazon lover here... Sarah Bower's The Book of Love is on its way to me as I write. Not that I don't already have enough books to read!
