Hope I'm not overstepping to start this thread as I didn't see it anywhere.

I have two new ones -

TAKEN - Dawn of Empire by Sam Barone -     


The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld



I haven't read "Dawn of Empire", but I can wholeheartedly recommend "The Interpretation of Murder"! Great historical mystery full of twists and turns; loved it. It would be a GREAT choice for the "Murder" goal on the challenge! ;-)

Both of these are brand new, never read hardcovers that I bought cheap at a remainder sale. They have NOT been exposed to smoke, but have been around my cat. (She thinks my desk is her bed)

Not sure if this is a good place to post this, but I iddn't really see another place that was relevant.

I have a WL'ed ARC copy of a YA historical fiction novel.

Guardian by Julius Lester

Free with an order from my shelf -or- 1 credit.

PM me if interested.
