  1. Great haul!
    I myself bought three books this week as there was a sale at the local bookstore: 20% off foreign language books (so that includes English books over here)

  2. Cool books! I was tempted to order the first book of Sarah Hoyt's series, but now I'll wait for your thoughts about it.
    Never heard of Mozart's Blood. I'll have to check it out!

  3. Nice haul! I hope you enjoy all your new books. Happy reading!
