First, a pile of recent purchases and Christmas gifts:
Click on it for a larger picture. When I ordered it, I had no idea The Summer Garden was 850 pages long. Can this woman write short books? Yikes. The copy of Temeraire is the Australian edition, of all things. Curious, but it has a cool embossed cover with a black dragon on it.
Secondly, two piles with review books about to be mailed to reviewers for the next HNR (once my co-editor Ellen determines who's getting what, that is).
The people behind me in line at the post office next Wednesday are going to love me.
