Just bought a copy of Valerie Fitzgerald's Zemindar, which promises to be a Far Pavilions-type epic.

For my Kindle:
Susanna Kearsley's Winter Sea for $2.99 (Misfit, your Goodreads review convinced me that this was a way good deal)

George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones (The posts here made me think that I MUST read this series.)

Thanks Susan. Just about everyone I know at GR and elsewhere just love that book. It is a keeper.

Speaking of Susanna Kearsley, today I received an ARC of The Rose Garden. Am tempted to skip work tomorrow to start reading.

I just don't know what to read when I finish Queen by Right. I haven't been reading that much this lately because I have been writing and publishing some content on the royalty website I help to administer. That's basically impossible to do during the school year.

Ordered 'Lion Invincible' by Carol Wensby-Scott, the second in her Percy trilogy from Ammie, and bought 'The Greatest Traitor - the life of Sir Roger Mortimer, 1st Earl of March' by Ian Mortimer and 'Valley of the Dolls' by Jacqueline Susann, 60p each from a charity shop this morning :)

Lion Invincible is getting quite HTF, hope you were able to find one reasonably priced.

I just got a copy in the mail today as well, although I've got the "L" book to finish before that one.

I did thanks Misfit, cost me the princely sum of £2.81 posted ;) It's Lion Dormant that's looking HTF and pricey, I'm keeping my eyes peeled to see if I can spot a cheaper copy.
