Books You've Already Purchased from the Connect Store

Is anyone interested in sharing the titles you've purchased from the Connect site (with coupon or without)?

I think it'd be helpful to list books we've bought from the actual Connect site, in hopes of helping others become aware of offerings they might have missed due to miscategorizing errors and faulty search capabilities.

Ack! A typo in the thread title!

Okay, I'll start.

Year's Best SF 7, when it cost $0.00
The Halloween Bundle, including the following by Kim Harrison:
Dead Witch Walking
Every Which Way But Dead
Good, Bad, and the Undead
Fistful of Charms
Dates from Hell
Perdido Street Station, by China Mieville

I already have the first four books by Kim Harrison in paperback, but I might be more likely to read them sooner if they're on my Reader. And I've bought and returned Perdido twice already, wanting very much to like it, but being put off by the gross-out factor. As my taste seems to darken over time, I may be ready to try it again. I've thought about what that says about our culture, or the genre, or about me.

ooh, combo...
Thanks for mentioning this, which was miscategorized by Connect as fantasy. Bear - fantasy?

I'm liking most of these books!

kenbaldwin, did you buy the Baroque Cycle books individually, or did you find a bundle somewhere? I could only find the individual books.

There's more I want, but I want to see a) if they adjust the out-of-whack prices and, b) if I can get my Canadian Visa with it's secondary US authorized address to work. Otherwise I'm going to have to go down to the local credit union and buy some prepaid visa cards on which I'll register a primary US address.

I had to spring for them separately--and volumes 2-3 are kinda pricey ($16/ea).

I had bought a test-ebook (two books in one) in Secure MS Reader format, and was not happy with the results I got in converting it rtf (lost the italics and links). Oh well, it was a $5 experiment.

After an hour of going blind hunting for all the italics in both books, I broke down and essentially bought the books AGAIN, this time from the Connect site. Did I mention that I also have these in paperback? Yes, I've now bought them three times!

So now I've officially used up my $50 credit with my recent purchase, all written by Robin Hobb:

Assassin's Apprentice
Royal Assassin
Assassin's Quest

and...
The Tawny Man Bundle

This had better be nicely formatted!
