Well, despite the fact I'm trying to save money I just spent $75.  But got 14 books, mostly hardcover!  I got my buddy covered for the swap, too!  All the books, but one, I got for myself were wishlisted books here!  Hopefully in the next decade I can get them read and pass them along!

Michele, tell us, tell us.  What did you get?  I've just spent the last 2 hours going thru the historical fiction, so far I have 3 in my cart.
