I have a trade paperback copy of Niccolo Rising looking for a good home.  I don't think I ever even read this copy as I have it in hardcover as well.  The ISBN is #0375704779.  Put it on your wishlist and I will send it to the first taker!  It is a great way to start this author if you have never read her.  I will keep this open till Monday morning, then I will post the book. 

 

This one is gone!

In case anyone is interested, I just added the following to my shelf:

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780449906149-May+You+Be+the+Mother+of+a+Hundred+Sons+A+Journey+Among+the+Women+of+India

May you be the mother of a hundred sons, A journey among the women of India.  by Elisabeth Buhmiller.

While not HF, it is about women's lives in India. The author was posted there as a journalist for the Washington Post for 3 years and she talked with women from all different classes in different regions of the country and the book is a commentary on Indian social life. Very interesting.

I am still missing The Courts of Love (Vol 5) which I'm 2/3 for on my WL, In the Shadow of the Crown (vol 6) which I'm 3/3 for on my WL, and William's Wife (vol 10) which I'm 2/3 for on my WL.  So not too much longer to wait on them.  I have to finish Harry Potter anyway before I start this series.

There is a huge Elizabeth Chadwick lot posted on eBay right now for around $10. I know it will definitely go way up in price, but I thought some of you might be interested. LINK
