I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
Buying other people books as Christmas presents is just dangerous. Especially when local publishers have 45% off sales. Apparently a book reading slump does not translate into a book buying slump.
So these all arrived in the mail this week. I'm particularly excited about The Haunted Grange Of Goresthorpe by Arthur Conan Doyle and Bookshops by Jorge Carrión; translated by Peter Bush. Oh, and Lady Cop Makes Trouble by Amy Stewart!
I also bought one more book - it's not up on top because it's a book I already have, and a small splurge, but I think at least BrokenTune, if nobody else, will understand why. I bought an uncorrected bound proof of The Eyre Affair. Not because of the book itself, but because of what came with it:
It's a black and white photo that Jasper Fforde did in a giveaway at some point, 105 of them in total given away. (http://www.jasperfforde.com/giveaway/tea002.html if anyone is curious). The book was less than a new paperback edition and I couldn't resist - I love Pickwick!
