It’s ebook roundup time again! I’ve been backing off a lot on ebook purchases lately. But this week, sufficient motivation has inspired me to splurge! Namely: Mary Stewart’s novels have finally come out in digital format. And as covered over here at the Bitchery, goodness gracious, the covers on those are gorgeous. And I do love me some Mary Stewart.
Better yet, I haven’t read a few of these, still. Doublechecking my library, I find that I have print copies of ten of the fifteen titles that I just bought off of Kobo. I’ll be re-reading those, along with the new ones! Just because a Mary Stewart comfort reading binge sounds delightful to me right now–partly due to our heading into storm season in the PNW, but also due to the general state of the world.
So here’s a roundup of stuff bought lately, because the Stewarts aren’t all of it, either. First, picked up at Kobo, here is the full list of Stewarts I just nabbed:
The ones I haven’t read yet
- The Wind Off the Small Isles and The Lost One (which is actually a novella with a bonus added short story)
- Thunder on the Right
- This Rough Magic (a title which amuses me, as there is a Russell Crowe film called Rough Magic)
- Stormy Petrel (I feel like I may have read this one ages ago, but I do not remember it and do not own a print copy)
- Rose Cottage (whose cover amuses me as there is a distinct lack of roses in otherwise nice art)
The ones I have already read
- The Gabriel Hounds
- Wildfire at Midnight
- Touch Not the Cat (AW YEAH and this one in particular is the one that triggered the Stewart bonanza, as I have high-school-era memories of reading this one!)
- The Moonspinners (except the cover art says The Moon-Spinners, even though the text does not, so I wonder about the discrepancy there)
- The Ivy Tree, which apparently differs between the UK and US editions; I’ll be particularly intrigued to find out how
- Nine Coaches Waiting
- My Brother Michael
- Madam, Will You Talk?
- Airs Above the Ground
Meanwhile, also picked up from Kobo
I grabbed Alan Doyle’s second memoir, A Newfoundlander in Canada: Always Going Somewhere, Always Coming Home, because Alan Doyle. Of course I’m buying Alan’s next book. 😀
Nabbed in print
The mass market paperback edition of Julie E. Czerneda’s The Gate to Futures Past, book 2 of her Reunification trilogy.
I’ve also gotten a new influx of ebook settlement credit, so I’ll be picking out some titles on B&N again soon. But for now let’s get this post up.
17 total titles in this post, and 50 for the year.
