More covers!

I decided I needed to own every Mary Stewart book in hardcover. So I did some shopping on Alibris. :)

William Morrow, 1956 edition

William Morrow, 1963 edition

William Morrow, 1965 edition

The only one I'm missing in hardcover is Thunder on the Right, which seems to go for over $75 for the old William Morrow edition. Anyone know why it's so much more expensive? It's my least favorite book, so I won't be spending that much money on one.

I also had to buy this old mass market copy of This Rough Magic. Because you can never have too many copies of This Rough Magic. :)

More fans of Stewart

I have converted my friend Li to the greatness of Mary Stewart. MWAHAHAHA! She loved Nine Coaches Waiting so much that she's now rushed to order more Stewart. I've told her she has to read This Rough Magic next. :)

And Alicia Paulson, creator of the very popular craft blog Posie Gets Cozy, has been reading Rose Cottage and Thornyhold. She loved them, of course. She says Rose Cottage "was the perfect book to read on a blanket under the shade of a tree in the Shakespeare Garden (which is where I read it). Good one."
