Here is what I have just ordered on good old Amazon.co.uk:

The first three Harry Potter books (Philosopher’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban). I read these aaaages ago and borrowed them off a friend, so I don’t actually own them. I do own 4-7 though.

Checkmate by Malorie Blackman – I have read the first two in this series, Noughts & Crosses and Knife Edge. I couldn’t buy the fourth book, Double Cross, as it’s not in paperback yet and I don’t really like to buy hardbacks (Harry Potter was an obvious exception).

These two books, The Harsh Cry of the Heron and Heaven’s Net Is Wide, are part of the Tales of the Otori. I read the first three (Across the Nightingale Floor, Grass for his Pillow, and Brilliance of the Moon), and then these two seemed to appear out of nowhere, so I naturally must read them.

Books two (New Moon) and three (Eclipse) are the next books for me to read in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. I am part-way through New Moon in a borrowed copy, but I’d like to continue reading in my own copy when it arrives. However, book four (Breaking Dawn) is still eluding me as there is no paperback available.

Hopefully these books will arrive soon. I got the cheapest possible prices I could (the total cost was £30.40 – about $44.20 or €34.15), but as some of the books are ordered from the Marketplace (individual sellers), I can’t be sure exactly when the books will arrive.
