Grabbed in print from Third Place Books:
- Maplecroft, by Cherie Priest. Which I already have in ebook form, but she’s one of my Must Also Have in Print authors. And because this book in particular is Lizzie friggin’ Borden and it is AWESOME.
- The Winter Long, by Seanan McGuire. Because I swear to gods I need to get caught up on the Toby Dayes. And I suspect Seanan’s going to be joining the “buy in both formats” queue because seriously, y’all, I DO read faster digitally these days. And OH DARN I’ll just have to give Seanan more money!
Grabbed electronically from B&N:
- J.R.R. Tolkien: The Making of a Legend, by Colin Duriez. Grabbed this because my sister alerted me that the ebook was on sale for 99 cents–and of course, because Tolkien. I haven’t read a proper biography of him, and this one appears to be well reviewed. So I’ll look forward to giving it a go.
Last but not least:
- C’est what? 75 mini lessons in conversational Québécois French, by Felix Polesello. This is a lesson book by the writer of the excellent OffQc blog I’ve been following, which features real-world usage of Quebecois French. Pretty much what it says on the tin and I’m looking forward to working my way through this to help improve my French!
This makes six books for the year so far.
