Well I have just bought Trudi Canavans 'black Magician Trilogy' and a book called 'Phantom'(very pricey!) :eek: and an Elizabeth Chadwick which for some reason I missed called 'Daughters of the Grail'...So it's happy reading time for me :D

Yesterday ordered "Something Borrowed" by Paul Magrs from Amazon marketplace, sort of an English True Blood set in Whitby, and I've just bought "Frostbitten" by Kelley Armstrong for a bargain £3 in the local HMV store.
