Since I found quite a few gems last time when I ordered from Better World Books, I decided I would indulge in another round of
Sebastian (Ephemera #1) by Anne Bishop
Belladonna (Ephemera #2) by Anne Bishop
I was going through my list of favorite authors and searching them to see if they had books available when it occurred to me to search for Anne Bishop. Although I had tried and discarded her Black Jewels series, I wasn't sure if she had anything else I hadn't read yet. As it turns out, she also has written the Ephemera series, which sounded interesting enough for me to purchase the first two. Normally I wouldn't be too interested in reading about an incubus, but again, this is Anne Bishop- therefore, I'll try it.
Among Thieves (Tales of the Kin #1) by Douglas Hulick
I do enjoy a good con- set in a fantasy world, of course. I have had this on my wishlist for what seems like forever, but I was glad to find it finally at a decent price.
Luck in the Shadows (Nightrunner #1) by Lynn Flewelling
This is another thief fantasy (or so I think...) but with a gay main character. Since it's unusual to find that in traditionally published (and older) fantasy, I thought I might give it a try.
The Liveship Traders Trilogy by Robin Hobb
I found myself coveting The Liveship Traders trilogy by Robin Hobb that I had passed on last time due to the notion that I could probably skip it. Since I'm loving Royal Assassin, it really didn't make sense to skip another of her series I might enjoy, especially when that series looks to have a female protagonist.
The Grand Total: $18.66 for three hardcovers and four paperbacks, and free shipping!

Last but not least, the video debut of George and Torrie (with a brief glimpse of Keisha), who are "boxing" for the honor of the Better World Books box:
As it happens, it is also St. Patrick's Day and Torrie's Unofficial Shelter-Sanctioned Birthday. She is now 7ish years old (although I frequently tout her to be older or younger, depending on the day). I'm ever so glad I adopted her from the shelter: she's such a fun police-dog (she ruins all of George's fun).
