I hope it will be helpful too. Someone thought it would be a good resource for me to have, so I decided to give it a go. :)

I bought four more EC titles today from the Book Depisitory:

Daughters of the Grail
Shields of Pride
The Conquest
The Champion

Speaking of the Book Depository, has anyone gone on there and viewed their map? Basically, you can see where people are shopping from and what they're buying... kinda cool.

Thanks, Divia! :)

Will you let me know what you think of Daughter of the Flames? I've had my eye on that and on her other book, The Swan Kingdom, but haven't read either yet.

I just got a fantastic book called On The Edge of Dream, the Women of Celtic Myth and Legend by Jennifer Heath. It's a collection of retellings of Celtic legends with female heroines and the writing is just lyrical and lovely.

I will tell you how it is :)

Oh, On the Edge of Dream sounds interesting. Hmm, another book on the TPR pile.
