Buying yet another bookstore’s worth of books or so

Because apparently a lot of the news in my life just involves buying a boatload of books, it’s time again for What’s New on Anna’s To Read Shelves!

Picked up in ebook form to feed my hungry, hungry Nook (and eventually, I swear, I’ll get around to reading all these too):

  • Bellwether, by Connie Willis. SF. Because Fictionwise is having a sale on SF and Mystery this week!
  • The Reincarnationist, by M.J. Rose. Mystery. Also because of the sale. I actually already had a freebie ebook copy of this, but it’s an Adobe Digital Editions PDF and not terribly readable on my Nook. So I said screw it, and got a far more readable eReader version. (Also, because M.J. Rose is apparently following me on Twitter. Hi!)
  • Blown, The Alibi Club, and The Secret Agent, by Francine Mathews. Mystery/Suspense. Because I’d previously read a lot of her work both under this name and that of Stephanie Barron, and I enjoy her quite a bit.
  • A Hint of Wicked and A Touch of Scandal, by Jennifer Haymore. Historical romance. In no small part because the Smart Bitches spread the news this morning that she has been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and this is me supporting a fellow survivor by buying her work. It helps quite a bit that from what I saw in the descriptions, I should have fun with these!
  • Crocodile on the Sandbank, Curse of the Pharaohs, and Seeing a Large Cat, by Elizabeth Peters! Mystery. This is, of course, me starting to buy ebook forms of all my Amelia Peabodies. Which I will ALSO be keeping in print.
  • The Summer of You, by Kate Noble. Historical romance. Highly, highly recommended by the Smart Bitches.
  • Hell Fire, by Ann Aguirre. Urban fantasy. Because I dig her work quite a bit.
  • A River in the Sky, by Elizabeth Peters! Mystery. This is the very latest Amelia Peabody, which I will be getting around to as soon as I read (drum roll)…
  • Changes, by userinfojimbutcher! Urban fantasy. Dresden Files. By which I mean AWESOME.

To go along with that last, I did of course also finally pick up Turn Coat, the previous Dresden, in print. Decided that even though the oversized paperback still annoys me, it will still serve well enough as an archival just-in-case-I-lose-all-my-ebooks copy. In the meantime, I’ll just be reading the ebook!

This, ladies and gentlemen, brings my grand total of acquired books for the year up to 119.
