Now that I’m trying to buy more books in ebook format, I’d half-forgotten the thrill of having parcels of books arriving on my doorstep (yes, I’m sad).
Amazon and The Book Depository kindly sent my orders at the same time, so sitting in front of me now are:
- Eva Ibbotson‘s “The Dragonfly Pool” (children’s), which I mentioned here
- Stephenie Meyer‘s “The Host” (SF), which everyone must have heard of by now
- Eric Berlin‘s “The Puzzling World of Winston Breen” (children’s), which I saw mentioned on a blog somewhere but can’t remember which now (anyone??). Anyway, the cool part of this book is that there are puzzles and brainteasers scattered throughout the book. One of the cover blurbs describes it as “…a Da Vinci Code for the Harry Potter set…”. I couldn’t resist. Website here, if anyone is interested.
- Mary Stewart‘s *okay, deep breath here* “Madam, Will You Talk?”, “Airs Above the Ground”, “The Moonspinners”, and “Nine Coaches Waiting” (romance), titles mostly chosen at random based on what The Book Depository had in stock. I say mostly, because I love the title of the first one and I’m a sucker for the dancing Lipizzaner horses, hence the first two choices.
Not a bad haul, methinks!
