1.) I'm almost done with A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
2.) A Feast for Crows came in the mail today. *giant squeeeeeeeeeee!*
3.) I went to the bag sale at the library, and due to my superior packing skills was able to grab 20 books (hardcover and paperback) for $1.00. A pretty good mix, with lots of romance, memoirs, and assorted fiction. My only disappointment was that by the time I got there (the bag sale started at 2:00, but the sale had been open since 11:00), the children's and YA books had been pretty thoroughly picked through. I forgot you have to go early to get the good ones of those. Next year's strategy: go in the morning for the kiddie lit and a first run to see if there's anything really rare or exciting, then come back later for the book sale and buy everything else I want.

Book sale purchases:
Birds of America by Lorrie Moore
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky (which I'm not sure I don't already have a copy of)
The Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper (Reread)
Death Du Jour by Kathy Reichs
Everything and the Moon by Julia Quinn
Fast Women by Jennifer Crusie
Holding the Dream by Nora Roberts
How to Marry a Marquis by Julia Quinn (pretty sure I actually do have a copy of this one, somewhere, but I have no idea where)
Love, Loss, and What I Wore by Ilene Beckham
Manhattan Memoir (American Girl; Manhattan, When I Was Young; Speaking with Strangers by Mary Cantwell
Notes From the Underground, The Double, and Other Stories by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penham by Bruce Robinson
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek; An American Childhood; The Writing Life by Annie Dillard
The Princess of Flames by Ru Emerson
Slightly Dangerous by Mary Balogh
Stroke of Midnight by Carly Phillips, Janelle Dickinson, and Jacquie D'Allesandro
To Marry An Irish Rogue by Lisa Hendrix
Vampire Bytes by Linda Grant
Vinegar Hill by A. Manette Ansay

Don't know when I'll get around to reading these, of course, but it's nice to know they're here, waiting for me, after A Feast of Crows and my library books are finished. I still have ones from last year's book sale I haven't finished!

I've read one of Jennifer Crusie and liked it a lot.
I really want to read the one by Mary Cantwell.

Yeah, I've never read Jennifer Crusie, but I've heard good things.

The Mary Cantwell looks awesome. I'll let you know how it is, and maybe if you still want to read it after I post my review or whatever, I can loan it to you or something.

The one of her's I read was "Tell Me Lies", I have "Fast Women" but I haven't read it yet.
That would rock.
