My book buying ban is going well - I'm very proud that I've gone three weeks without purchasing any books. Yay me! My bank manager is very happy - although I suspect that Amazon is wondering about the reduction in their orders!
However, I have still been getting books in the mail - just the one this week, but a book I've been after for so long - I actually mentioned it on Thursday Throwback - guess lady fate was smiling down on me! I was so surprised to find it on ReaditSwapit - and excited when my request for a swap was accepted!
The Dragon Queens - Traci Harding
Ashlee Devere, 19th century clairvoyant, adventurer and historian, is called upon to authenticate a Sumerian text that predates the Old Testament. Tamar, daughter of the renowned 21st century linguist Mia Montrose, reading Ashlee-s diaries for the first time, undergoes an astounding transformation - psychically and physically. Kali, a powerful goddess, and one of the keepers of the lost key to the gateway between our world and the next, is coming ... From the pyramids of Egypt to the legendary Halls of Amenti, from future myth to ancient science, from the sacred to the profane - the race to unlock the secrets of the Grail bloodline challenges the very nature of the gods...
I've been after this book for so long...and now I have it, I can finally read the whole trilogy! Expect a Traci Harding week sometime soon! :-)
A few weeks I entered the Harder, Faster, Stronger, Better Blog competition held by the awesome Gini Koch and I won! It arrived this week - a selection of yummy swag including the most awesome tote bag and pen. My fridge is now decorated with mini book covers magnets! I love it all. :-)
