Bought one book: How Not To Diet: The Groundbreaking Science of Healthy, Permanent Weight Loss by Michael Greger.

Brought home two ARCs:
* All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams/Lauren Willig/Karen White (pub 1/20; historical fiction)
* _Franklin and Washington: The Founding Partnership_ by Edward J Larson (pub 2/20; history)

Bought two books on impulse on a day I was shopping for DVDs:
* Stolen: Five Free Boys Kidnapped into Slavery and Their Astonishing Odyssey Home by Richard Bell
* Thomas Paine and the Clarion Call for Independence by Harlow Giles Unger

Ordered a book because I had a coupon.

* First Lady of Letters: Judith Sargent Murray and the Struggle for Female Independence by Sheila L. Skemp

This has been on my TBB short list for quite a while. I ordered this and with it the two movies "The Doughgirls" (more than I wanted to spend, but there was only 1 in stock) and "Went the Day Well?" (which I've seen but wanted to own). Both are associated with WWII.

And from another source I ordered two more '40s movies: "Home, Sweet Homicide" (based on the book by Craig Rice, sort of; love it) and "Detective Kitty O'Day" (have never seen it, but I enjoy a lot of the Monogram B movies; I love the comedy-mysteries of the day).

In January I really need to go on a money diet. But, damn, that source for old movies is seductive.
