I haven't bought a book for.... well so long I can't remember the last time. In fact, I was in a complete reading slump last year for a good 6 months. But I've been reading more and more recently and yesterday I not only got a book in the post that I'd ordered, but we also went over into the city centre and I splashed out in Borders. I could have bought a lot more but books are so expensive here. Still, this is what I got:
Pride and Prescience by Carrie Bebris - a mystery featuring Mr and Mrs Darcy (of Pride and Prejudice). No idea if it'll be any good but it'll definitely be of interest to me as a Jane Austen and mystery fan!
Monday Mourning by Kathy Reichs - this was the only one of hers they had so I nabbed it. I've been wanting to try her out for ages.
Blood and Circuses by Kerry Greenwood - number six in the Phryne Fisher series. I'm slowly working my way through them - they're great!
Island to Abbey: survival and sanctuary in the books of Elsie J Oxenham 1907 -1959 by Stella Waring and Sheila Ray (this is the one that came in the post). This is a study of Elsie Jeanette Oxenham, who wrote wonderful schoolgirl books in the early to mid 1900s - very old-fashioned jolly-hockey-sticks-type things. The type you either love or hate. I love them!
