    The kindle sales get me too – every time I spend more than I want to, it's just so easy!

    Ooh, Peirene Press – I'm very tempted by their books, they all look so interesting and carefully chosen. And Jaws – haha, fantastic! You should do a readalong!

    I've been thinking about picking up The Dog Stars for a while. It sounds great!

    Look forward to reading what you think of the Peirene novels, and also of Tigers in Red Weather. I liked it but felt it was a bit style and atmosphere over substance, although admittedly the atmosphere is seductive.

    *dies* ALL THE PRETTIES! Really want to read The Dog Stars. REALLY REALLY want to read The Stepford Wives. Just bought Tigers in Red Weather. Really enjoyed Jaws. ALL THE PRETTIES! πŸ˜€
