Today I bought:
The 7 books in the Pendragon Series by D.J. Machale. I've read 5 while in Togo, having skipped The Never War and not had the chance to read Quillan Games.
The 6 books in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain. Never read them and always wanted to read The Black Cauldron.
Dead Famous: Al Capone, Dead Famous: Isaac Newton, Dead Famous: Queen Victoria
Stories for 9 Year Olds, for Rebecca
The Plague by Philip Wooderson, two books in one with My Side of the Story... a girl's story on one end, flip the book over and a boy's story on the other.
Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett. Had never heard of this book but saw it on a recommended reading list, then saw it in the store, and bought it.
Hugo Pepper by Paul Stewart. The neighbor's kid liked it.
Operation Typhoon Shore by Joshua Mowll. I put in a request for the first book, Operation Red Jericho. The books are touted as "A Da Vinci Code for children."
Some Rs15 superhero comic books for Nicholas.
And 5 VikramAditya stories... The Snow Leopard Adventure, Ladakh Adventure, Ranthambore Adventure, and two Andaman Adventure stories. Written by an Indian, the books are obviously set in India and have a conservationist bent to them.
