[quote=""TiciaRoma""]Um, I used a Xmas gift card from Amazon--under $20 though. I balances out the great kindle deals you keep us aware of. ��[/quote]

$20 is rather reasonable. I recall seeing it sell for quite a bit more.

I've got a copy of Red Adam's Lady "maturing" on the TBR pile. I just had a look at librarything, and it seems I must of been suitably excited when I got it as I have entered in a private note - "ebay $3!"

Just pre-ordered the kindle edition of The Forest Laird: a Tale of William Wallace by Jack Whyte. I loved Whyte's Camulod books and am anticipating this one. It should be delivered next week!

Because an amazon gift card from my hubby, he convinced me to buy the Hunger Games trilogy on my Kindle. Much cheaper and quicker that way. Now to give said hubby permission to use my kindle...
