Not much. On the front doorstep just minutes ago: A package from Better World Books containing five used books I was keenly waiting for. I know, I know, coals to Newcastle. But I simply can't help myself. Besides, I console my guilty conscience by telling it that my local library doesn't have a good collection of Patrick O'Brian's books.
The next three Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin books (I'm ordering them in groups of threes as I go along.) are thus:
THE MAURITIUS COMMAND by Patrick O'Brian
DESOLATION ISLAND by Patrick O'Brian
THE FORTUNE OF WAR by Patrick O'Brian
I owe you a review of POST CAPTAIN and H.M.S. SURPRISE which I will do in combo for Monday.
The other two books in the doorstep package are:
DEATH BY DARJEELING by Laura Childs
The first book in a cozy tea-themed series which was recommended by a friend. Not sure if it's going to work for me, but I'm giving it a try.
THE SWIMMING POOL by Mary Roberts Rinehart
I'm a big Rinehart fan as some of you may know and when Ryan so enthusiastically recommended this one on his blog (WORDSMITHONIA) the other day, I realized I hadn't read it yet - a condition that will soon be corrected.
Those of you not familiar with Better World Books, they have a great selection of new and used and it's always FREE shipping! No minimum. Just sayin'.
