Buy a Book, Save the World

For those as missed it from Monday's link salad: Alison Kent says: Buy a Book, Save the World. A la Moonrat and, more recently, Nathan Bransford. Do your part for the economy - buy a book. Just one.

And.... putting my money where my mouth is.... I bought four books yesterday, two of them as gifts. Not even holiday gifts. Just appreciation ones to special people. The ones I kept for myself: Chelsea Cain's Heartsick (after reading Cameron's review of Sweetheart) and Shannon Butcher's No Escape.

Meanwhile, Martha Wells has a book recommendation thread going that has many, many, many suggestions.

What was the last book you bought? And when did you buy it?
