OK, remember how I said that I was going to cut down on my book buying? Well, that went straight out the window yesterday when I went to my library’s paperback book sale and brought home the following:
The Last Templar, by Michael Jecks (first in the Knights Templar series)
Death in Zanzibar, by MM Kaye. One of Kaye’s mysteries.
A Prologue to Love, by Taylor Caldwell (not sure it it’s historical fiction or what, but the description on the back of the book looked good)
Lion of Ireland, by Morgan Llewellyn (the cover of my edition of this is unbelievably, wonderfully tacky). A novel about Brian Boru, the 10th century Irish king.
The King’s Bishop, by Candace Robb (since I’ve read the first three books in this series, finding the fourth at the sale was perfect)
This brings my collection of owned by unread books up to 83. Basically, I’ve got enough to read from my own collection until the end of the year.! It seems as though I acquire books faster than I actually read them. So as for what I actually read this week:
My Fair Lazy, by Jen Lancaster
The Brothers of Gwynedd Quartet (the for book, Sunrise in the West), by Edith Pargeter
The Campaigners, by Cynthia Harrod Eagles
So, that’s about it… it’s been a quiet weekend around here…
