Future crimes: everything is connected, everyone is vulnerable and what we can do about it, Conscious eating, Privacy in the modern age,The Oats, Peas, beans, and barley cookbook, purchased via the Barnes and Noble website.

Here is a link to a recent BookTV presentation given by the "Future Crimes" author, who is a former Los Angeles police officer: http://www.c-span.org/video/?324614-1/marc-goodman-future-crimes

The room was packed for that presentation, and several tech-savvy questions were asked and answered after the author's presentation ended. Note: this book has been #1 on this year's science as well as technology booklists since the month it was published. Here's the author website for even more info: http://www.marcgoodman.net/

One ARC that made me go "ooohh!" -- Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho.

MANY blurbs on the cover, but the first one I saw was from Naomi Novik, whose Temeraire series I really enjoy, describing the book as Georgette Heyer meets Susanna Clarke. Sold.

Bought a Doctor Who T-shirt because it got me a free Tardis keychain. Picked up on impulse the same day The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who by Simon Guerrier and Dr. Marek Kukula.

Also brought home an ARC: _Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction_ by Philip E. Tetlock and Dan Gardner.
