Miscellaneous haul

I've been avoiding buying books, since I have a staggering number of them that I've not read and I got a lot of books last year, but small purchases accumulate. Here's the stuff I've picked up recently so that I don't forget and buy it again.

L. Frank Baum — The Complete Wizard of Oz (sff)
Susan Cain — Quiet (non-fiction)
Susanna Clarke — Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (sff)
John Kenneth Galbraith — The Affluent Society (non-fiction)
Mira Grant — Deadline (sff)
Robert E. Howard — Red Nails (sff)
C.M. Kornbluth — His Share of Glory (sff)
Seanan McGuire — A Local Habitation (sff)
Seanan McGuire — Discount Armageddon (sff)
Richelle Mead — Storm Born (sff)
Richelle Mead — Thorn Queen (sff)
Richelle Mead — Iron Crowned (sff)
Bertrand Russell — Mysticism and Logic and Other Essays (non-fiction)
Bertrand Russell — Political Ideals (non-fiction)
Bertrand Russell — Proposed Roads to Freedom (non-fiction)
John Scalzi — 24 Frames into the Future (non-fiction)
John G. Slater (ed.) — The Basic Writings of Bertrand Russell (non-fiction)
Catherine M. Wilson — The Warrior's Path (mainstream)

All of these except the Kornbluth and the Scalzi are on the Kindle.

The Bertrand Russell were largely free. I've already read the Clarke, but it was on sale, and it's a book that I think I'd like to read again sometime. Similarly, I already have paper copies of all the Wizard of Oz books and wouldn't give up those copies, but the complete original series was only 99 cents, which was too good of a deal to pass up.
