Thank you for doing this, again! (And for doing this again!)

The Queen’s Necklace - Teresa Edgerton -> I've liked her other work and not seen this one.

Sovay - Celia Rees -> One of my favorite poets has this as her LJ name... I was curious.

and

The Emerald Wand of Oz - Sherwood Smith -> Smith? Oz? How can I pass it up, even as it makes me nervous!
Gloryforestofglory on September 20th, 2010 12:20 am (UTC)
Oooh, books.

Is Ghost Map one you've read? It sounds intriguing form the title.

I'm also interested in The Adoration of Jenna Fox - Mary E. Pearson.
Kelladyjoust on September 20th, 2010 02:39 am (UTC)
They're both yours!

I haven't read Ghost Map, and I'm a bit sad to let it go. While it sounds AWESOME, it's been sitting in a shopping bag in my office for over two years. It's clear I'm not going to read it any time soon, and I'd rather it go to someone who will. That someone is you.

:)

Re: May I have?
BTW, this is something I should do too. I really need to purge some books and it appears that the store is not doing buy backs for now. (They may stop it for good...)

I would love Naked Pictures of Famous People and The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp, if no one else has claimed them yet.

You are, of course, ridiculously awesome for doing this again.
