Recent Acquisitions

Hmm, it's been a while since I've done this, hasn't it? These are pretty much all from this year's Book Expo America (the reason I didn't bring any books with me when I left home!), with a few more from my Charlottesville time at the end. A few more books from CVille so far have already been shipped home, so I'll list those when I'm back in Maine in a couple weeks.
