Dax, C Moore is still in my Amazon cart thanks to your rec awhile ago. I keep "saving for later" and have over a hundred items "saved." I highly HIGHLY recommend once again to all who like fantasy - Jim Butcher's Dresden Files.

Based on my Amazon orders for 2010....

Commodore Perry in the Land of the Shogun - Great, even handed look at imperialism for middle schoolers. (part of my gilded age unit)

Mockingjay - 3rd in another middle schooler series - but tons of adults love it. Think "Roman Empire history meets Survivor."

Side Jobs: Stories From the Dresden Files - Short Stories that fill the gaps between novels

Control Unleashed - Creating a Focused and Confident Dog - Terrific, but for advanced trainers. Me, just getting started and overwhelmed.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight Volume 7: Twilight - Okay, fandom went a little bonkers over this....imo, the best was the end...

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight Volume 6: Retreat - Still not a comic book/graphic novel fan. I'm too oriented to print and forget to study the illustrations ans then hear discussionabout points relating to the pics and I'm like, wtf?

FAILURE TO CONNECT: How Computers Affect Our Children's Minds
-- and What We Can Do About It- More or less advocated the draconian elimination of ANY computer use under age 13. Arguments were valid and I'm still ruminating about this. Not that we can ever ut the genie back in the bottle.

Aunt Dimity Down Under (Paranormal Detective) - An excellent cozy, I highly rec this character driven series.

Hanover Square Affair (Mystery of Regency England) - First of the six regency mysteries by Ashley Gardner I read this summer with half-pay Capt. Lacy back from Napoleonic wars as detective. Very good job with historical details.

*********

I'll have to check my shelves for stuff bought at actual bookstores. I seem to order a lot of genre at Amazon, and browse and pick up quirky/literate stuff in bookstores.
