I have a copy of A Health unto his Majesty by Jean Plaidy available.  This one is a PB from 1956 and doesn't have an ISBN so I don't know how I would go about posting it to someones shelf.  I guess if someone wants it they can buddy me a credit and send me their addy.  I dunno but if someone would like it PM me and let me know.  Its in pretty good shape for being 52 years old :)

I just ordered this title.  I have Temple Dancer and will begin it  after I finish Beneath the Marble Sky.  Guess I will be immersed in the Indian culture for quite some time.  Thanks for the heads up.

Pam

Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin: http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780425219256-Mistress+of+the+Art+of+Death

One of my favorite reads from this past year. Someone should snap this up. It's a wonderful, unusual historical thriller. Think CSI meets The Canterbury Tales.
