[quote=""parthianbow""]Amanda - you may know this already, but Book Depositorydoesn't charge shipping to anywhere in the world, and its prices are close to Amazon's...[/quote]

I am an avid shopper at Bookdepository! Though this order came through cheaper with amazon.co.uk. I always check!

Received The founding today by Cynthia Harrod-Eagleas. Can't wait to put in on the top of the TBR pile. :)

Earlier this week I came across The Josephine B. Trilogy by Sandra Gulland, brand new for $10. And Courtesan by Diane Haeger.

Just ordered "The Mistaken Wife" by Rose Melikan from Amazon.

Book Dep are usually pretty competitive with Amazon, and are sometimes a bit cheaper so it's worth double-checking before you hit that Buy Now button! Mind you having said that, they upped the price on one book I had my eye on within about an hour of my putting it into my virtual basket - they must have known! So instead I ordered it from a UK online store. It was May's BOTM "As Meat Loves Salt", and I also ordered "A Better Quality of Murder" by Ann Granger from the same site.

The Mountain of Gold (Matthew Quintons Journals 2) by J.D. Davies

Had my eyes on these for a while so I hope they are as good as I think and heard. :)

The Search is one of my favorite stand alone Nora Roberts now. I think it had something to do with the fact that I had just bought a puppy at the same time I read it, but it was great!
