Barnes and Noble tempted me with its 15 percent off coupon temptations, and there was this Borders, like, y’know, right there and stuff, with a going out of business sale and 30 percent off of Nora Roberts titles and um…
Yeah, I know. Any excuse in a book hiatus, right? Right.
Anyway! Picked up in print:
- Midnight Bayou, Divine Evil, and Genuine Lies, all by Nora Roberts. Picked up since these are standalone romantic suspense titles of hers that I hadn’t read yet, and I tend to like those of hers better than her paranormals. (Special side note to
kisantheif she reads this: I know you didn’t like Midnight Bayou, but I wanted to check it out for curiosity’s sake, and hey, 30 percent off.)
- Johannes Cabal the Necromancer, by Jonathan L. Howard. Picked up because I had a coupon, and also because the blurb on the back described it as a “charmingly gothic, fiendishly funny Faustian tale about a brilliant scientist who makes a deal with the Devil, twice”. Noted it because Book 2 was on the new releases table at B&N, and it looked interesting, so I went back and found Book 1 to actually read first.
And picked up electronically, since it was a freebie that I saw mentioned in passing on Google+:
- The Midnight Eye, by William Meikle. Detective story, and hey, free book.
138 for the year.
