Book sale!

There was a booksale at Kinokuniya and BookXcess  and as normal I bought a number. Managed to get a few really good ones fairly cheaply:

(1) Irish Stew by Andrew M Greeley
(2) Kindred In Death by J.D. Robb
(3)Beauty by Raphael Selbourne
(4) These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer
5) Aphrodite's Workshop for Reluctant Lovers by Marika Cobbold
                             (6) The Writing on my Forehead by Nafisa Haji
                             (7) Reading in Bed by Sue Gee
                            (8) Being Elizabeth by Barbara Taylor Bradford
                            (9)Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts
I've already read the first three titles - now reading These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer. Otr should I say re reading? I have read this one before  - way back in my teaching days when Repin was away at university. That was when I discovered Georgette Heyer and started looking for her booksevery time I went to the bookshop. I still enjoy her and love her style. Like Austen, one cannot have enough of her, whereas for JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts) I can only read one of hers at any one time. Too much of her and I'd feel like -enough is enough! However those books that Nora Roberts wrote much earlier - the ones about family (The Quinn Brothers)
 I really enjoy reading and don't mind re reading. Some of her novels which are my favourite are the ones about family - the sisters - Born in Fire, Born in Ice and Born in Shame  as well as those about fantasy and magic in Face the Fire and so on.
