    Hey Randy M,
    I just read No Country for Old Men a week or so ago, and I highly reccomend it. Its the best book I've read in quite some time.

    It seems the last time I posted in this thread was more than two years ago, in the days of the dreaded to-read pile's nascence. I now have more than fifty books waiting to be read, but at the top of the queue (estimating somewhat, as things change; and other than the first, in no particular order) are:

    -Scardown & Worldwired by Elizabeth Bear
    -Count Zero by William Gibson
    -Player of Games by Iain Banks
    -Brasyl by Ian McDonald
    -Evil for Evil by KJ Parker
    -Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov
    -Dune by Frank Herbert
    -Old Man's War by John Scalzi
    -Elric of Melniboné by Michael Moorcock

    The unfortunate thing, considering the size of my to-read pile, is that half of those are queue-jumpers bought in the last few months.
    I'm also surprised by just how much sci-fi is currently on my list.

    I would recommend Sailing to Sarantium as the better read, though there is nothing wrong with Last Light which I would consider an average Kay book that he sleepwalked through.

    I just picked up The Bastard King by Dan Chernenko and also When The Gods Slept by Allan Cole. I had a gift card for Barnes and Noble and I still have a lot of money left on it, but I can't find anything that catches my eye. I still have Lies of Locke Lamora on my "to read" list as well and I need to reread The Forest Mage by Robin Hobb. I also just finished Eyes of Crow by Jerri Smith-Ready and I'm really anxious to start the second one Voice of Crow. I guess I'll have to go to the Recommendation Thread to check out some new books, because I just can't find anything..
