I've gotten pickier with books, especially with the economy the past two years, trying to buy books I'll read sooner than later. Yesterday I bought the following at Amazon and qualified for free shipping with a subtotal of $25.06:
Free Agent by Jeremy Duns - a spy thriller set in 1969.
The Apprentice by Tess Gerritsen - getting ready for TNT's "Rizzoli and Isles" premiering July 12.
Rough Weather by Robert B. Parker - I'm a Spenser fan, but his last cases aren't worth $9.99 in paperback. I paid less than half that for a used copy.
Only Angels Have Wings on DVD - This 1939 Hawks film was Don Bellisario's major inspiration for "Tales of the Gold Monkey", as much as ABC tried to turn it into a Raiders of the Lost Ark ripoff.
