My 2010 List, so far, because yes! I still have dollars left to use!
The new Joe Pike novel from Robert Crais: One Minute Rule. Any Crais book is a treat and if it features Joe Pike the entertainment is doubled. http://www.robertcrais.com/ for excerpts/ first 2 or 3 chapters. RC is very generous with his previews....
Two glossy decorating books from my two favorite designers:
