This ought to be good. devil

If you order Silent in the Sanctuary from me, I'll toss in Silent in the Grave as a freebie. ("Grave" is a bit worn)

I also posted a nice copy of People of the Wolf, in case you need a Pre-500 B.C. book.

Finally, I offer for your consideration Rite of Conquest and the sequel King's Blood by Judith Tarr.  Norman Conquest with a little wizardry involved.

LOL! Well, I can tell you that she probably won't be doing it until after she gets off work, so you can worry about checking later today, lol.

Genie, I think Cathy has those Angelique books on her wishlist. You could save cash on postage!

 

I'd like to get Tigana from you! That's it though...I will be strong...I will be strong...

If you are going to have 64 losses on the very first day of the challenge...then I'm just going to go play in traffic right now. I'm never going to win, am I?!

Oh no, Vicky! If I hadn't ordered that kindle deal with the Raybourn books, I would've requested those you posted here!

Genie HAD to post a sh_t load of books after all the hype or she would've never lived it down. Let's see if she can keep up the momentum. I'm thinking a "dark horse" will just keep pluggin away at this and then cross the finish line by a nose!! wink
