Yikes! They're sort of strangely old-fashioned though aren't they in a bodice-ripping way!

Cathedral of the Sea
Where Mermaids Sing (a Sebastian St Cyr mystery) by C S Harris



I really want to read Cathedral of the Sea, but it seems to be a bit hard to get hold of here!

You never know with these older books and those covers though, sometimes I've found quite a gem beneath all that cheesiness. Roberta Gellis being a prime example. I'm willing to take a gamble, besides erm wants to know who designed the one cover.

Teacher's Appreiciation Weekend at Borders (25% off!) this eve netted me many books for my students, plus Mistress of the Revolution by Catherine Delors. I left my list at home, so I probably will go back tomorrow.

I just started it yesterday and enjoying it. Won't be a five star but I'm pleasantly surprised.

PS - be warned on keeping your wish list public. People can see one's full name and city, which is why mine is kept private.

Hee, so do I. The books I told you I had? My DH took them to be traded that morning :( But I'll have more. And there is no time limit on when I get the book. Heavens knows I have much more than my share to read right now anyway!

Are you a Borders Reward Member? I always get emails about them (but we also get fliers at school as well, so.....) Anyway, its all weekend, so go for it!
