For this time period, complete Fiction book inventory (excluding kid's books) will be discounted by AN ADDITIONAL 50%!
This sale is in addition to already discounted prices of 50-80% off.
Free standard shipping on orders of $35 or more to North America applies
Yes, why did you tell us this? I just ordered another book from Amazon, Wolf Hall because I needed another item to get free shipping. You know the deal? Spend another $11, and save $4 on shipping. Why do we fall for it?
I need more books like a hole in the head, but I'll ask. So, what's everyone ordering?
Erika & Karla, you have to tell us what you ordered (I think that's in the by-laws). So far I have The Flight and Cathedral by the Sea in my cart, but I'm not finished.
Shelley, they have tons of Bernard Cornwell.

OMG, We all have the same husband!! How does that man get around?
I've been on Bookcloseouts since yesterday, pondering my cart. It's crazy-making. I hope you all know that if you go to e-bates first and then to the bookcloseouts site, you will get 6% back. I've ordered everything from books to shoes through e-bates and then when the amount is a certain total (I THINK it's about $12.00) they send you a check.

They had a ton of books that I already have, which I was kicking myself a little bit for, but here's the list. They didn't have anything from my WL so these are just ones I thought sounded interesting.
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - Ron Hansen
I kept it to under $2 per book because I'm a cheap %$^#& that way.
I did weaken and spend $4 on 1906 by James Dalessandro, about corrupt SF & the earthquake
Got 2 trashy romances for 99 cents each, and some blah contemp chick lit for a co-worker because she begged. I won't bore you with the titles, because I'm boring myself thinking about them.
Life Mask - Emma Donoghue
An Assembly Such As This - Pamela Aidan (I hate P&P, but I'm curious if I'll like the published fanfiction for it :-P)
Keeper of the Crystal Spring - Naomi & Deborah Baltuck
The Memory Palace - Christie Dickason
I caved like the house of cards that I am. Woe is me when DH checks out our debit card expenditures. LOL! I'll get a good eyeball rolling! Here's what I ended up with, and yes, I kept going until I hit $35 for the free shipping.
The Sunne In Splendor, Sharon Kay Penman (Really? Who can resist an SKP for such a good price???)
The Rose Without a Thorn, Jean Plaidy
Tiger Claws, John Speed
The Temple Dancer, John Speed (These two by Speed have been on my WL forever)
Anthony & Cleopatra, Colleen McCullough
The Concubine, Norah Lofts
The Queenmaker, India Edghill
The Secret Supper, Javier Sierra
Catherine The Great: Love, Sex & Power, Virginia Rounding
and . . . yes, I had to go there . . .
The Winter King, Excalibur, and Enemy of God, Bernard Cornwell. I figured it was fate that this trilogy was all available. I just read on BC's site today that he said that of all the books he's written, "The Arthur Books" are still his favorites. He practically begged me to buy them, for Pete's sake!
I'm happy. I got 12 books for $35, which equals roughly $2.92/book. Who can afford NOT to buy at that price?

Oh Shelley, you described that so well. My DH will say "this is why you're not getting a Kindle for Christmas - you keep getting more books!"
I really had to restrain myself:
The Queen's Bastard by Robin Maxwell
Here Be Dragons by SKP
Against a Crimson Sky by James Conroyd Martin (Author of Push Not the River, which I have on my WL)
I folded too, of course, and found quite a few that I just had to have. And, since Donna is correct and tellin' what you got is our only law, here's my list:
The Dragon's Tale - Adam Williams
The Jewel Trader of Pegu - Jeffrey Hantover
The Seance - John Harwood
The Accomplice - Kathryn Heyman
The Lightstep - John Dickinson
The Indian Clerk - David Leavitt
The Gates of the Alamo - Stephen Harrigan
Sweetsmoke - David Fuller
Symphony - Jude Morgan
Sacred Ground - Barbara Wood
The Blessing Stone - Barbara Wood
Daughter of the Sun - Barbara Wood -
Woman of A Thousand Secrets - Barbara Wood - I've never read any of her books, but I now have three of them; hope they are good!
Kushiel's Scion - Jacqueline Carey
Kushiel's Justice - Jacqueline Carey
Kushiel's Mercy - Jacqueline Carey
In Triumph's Wake: Royal Mothers, Tragic Daughters, and the Price They Paid for Glory - Julia P. Gelardi
Normally, I wouldn't buy books that are posted here, but at $2.49, they were as cheap as the cost of earning a credit. I wish BCO would occasionally include non-fiction in their sales! They have tons of N/F that I'd love to get.
Thank goodness for separate bank accounts! LOL
I ended up with 23 books! Most were not HF though, so not going to list them here.
And I wanta new bookshelf for Yule...even though I have not been a good girl.
So here's what I ordered. The last 2 aren't HF and 4 of them were on my WL.
Cathedral of the Sea The Flight Holy Fools The Mercy Seller Stand the Storm A Cup of Tea The Bondwoman's Narrative Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand The Bronze Horseman Sweetsmoke Becky Ordered Don't Let Her See Me Cry For the Love of Julie
Okay by some miracle I manage to resist this awesome BCO sale and what happens? I got $100 to spend for my anniversary and of course I scooted on over to B&N and got:
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
The Sisters who would be Queen by Leanda de Lisle
War of the Roses by Alison Weir
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
A Separate Country by Robert Hicks
2 of those I got at 60% off! Yay for new books!!!
