  • William Rabkin, Psych:  A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read.  TV tie-in.
  • Quentin Reynolds, The F.B.I.  YA nonfiction; #56 in the U. S. Landmark series from Random house.
  • Fred Saberhagen and Roger Zelazny, Coils.  SF.
  • Donald J. Sobol, Two-Minute Mystery Collection.  Omnibus of three books (Two-Minute Mysteries, More Two-Minute Mysteries, and Still More Two-Minute Mysteries) from the author of the Encyclopedia Brown stories.
  • Charles Stross, Halting State.  SF.
  • Ian Watson, The Martian Inca.  SF.
     Kitty picked up a pile of thrillers, mostly by Lisa "She Can Do No Wrong" Gardner, and a book on M. C. Esher -- none of which have I listed today.

     Also, Dawn added a couple of books to the pile in exchange for some chili and two of Kitty's peppermint brownies:

  • Bret Halliday, Never Kill a Client.  A 1962 Mike Shayne mystery, so it's actually written by Halliday.
  • Carly Phillips, The Bachelor.  I suspect this one's chick lit because the cover is embossed with lipstick kisses and the cover copy asks, "Will this bad boy make it to the altar?"
