It sounds like you found some really good books...hope you enjoy!

Marg said...

That's a really good haul!

Ooh, Georgette Heyer! I think I post all over blogs about my love for her.

I really enjoyed Lies of Locke Lamora (though some aspects annoyed me), but I haven't picked up its sequel yet. Some day...

I haven't even HEARD of some of the others but the covers look great!

samantha: I'm sure I will!

Marg: So good it took my shoulder a whole day to forgive me!

Aarti: Now that you mention it, I do remember seeing the title somewhere on your blog - maybe it was some unconscious recollection that made me pick it up.
