And, a bunch of ebooks because Fictionwise gave me a shiny coupon for 25% off my next order, since I took a survey for them:

Ghost Whisperer: Ghost Trap by Doranna Durgin, since I’m getting caught up on her stuff too.
And, entirely because it’s set in Canada and involves a Mountie and okay yeah fine I like Due South, and also because it got squeed over on Smart Bitches, Loreth Anne White’s category romance Manhunter. The title is goofy, but I won’t be reading this for high literature, I assure you. ;)
So! With eight more books, that brings the purchase total this year up to 82.
