    Thanks (I use Goodreads but haven't played around much to notice these options).

    My co-editor Robert reviewed it for Fantasy Book Critic and he really liked it, while I checked the sample chapters from Baen/Webscriptions/Night Shade and it intrigued me too so I plan to get to it soon, but first in fantasy is my top expected book at least until the Heirs to the Blade comes in October, namely The Last Four Things.

    Edit: About Goodreads - if you go to "shelf settings" you can customize each shelf to what data is displayed, in what order, you can make it exclusive or not, while the cover collages are just awesome - I do a lot of them for FBC's monthly spotlights or occasional essays, but here they are ready to be grabbed, no work needed

    * prepares for gasps of "how can you NOT have read these yet..."

    1. A song of ice and fire (all of 'em)
    2. Sword of Shadows
    3. Prince of nothing
    4. Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn
    5. The Kingkiller Chronicle
    6. Black company (book 5 onward)
    7. The book of swords
    8. WoT from book 11 (once I can find a decent synopsis of books 1-10 NOT rereading)
    9. Dragonlance chronicles (if I make it through the rest of book 1...just cant identify with the characters yet)
    10 Gemells works yet again (I like having him as a fallback, as I can read them without thinking too much)

    Been reading fantasy for 25 years or more now and I'm glad to say, I still enjoy it as much now as I did when I found it as a teen...now excuse me I have to go try make friends with a half elf and a rather perculiar mage so that I can finish this novel and open up the world of dragonlance.

    How can anybody plan what they will feel like reading 10 books ahead? I usually think one or two books ahead and that is only so I can allow time for online orders to ship.

    Got me. Aside from book club books or new releases I'm interested in reading, my next book is always as much a surprise to me as it would be to anyone else. I never know what I'll pick next.

    I'm gonna finish up Under the Dome by Stephen King and my re-read of A Song of Ice and Fire (currently on Clash) and then I'll go on to these (in no real order):

    The Dragon's Path by Daniel Abraham
    The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan
    Deadhouse Gates by Steven Erikson
    Re-read of the Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons
    Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey
    It by Stephen King
    A Dark Matter by Peter Straub
    So Cold the River by Michael Koryta
    The Other Lands by David Anthony Durham

    That's all I've really got planned for the immediate future. Of course, if I happen to be reading any of these when A Dance With Dragons releases in July, it will be put on hold so that I can read Dance at least twice.

    At various times I've said similar things. My attention span is similar to a butterfly-flight pattern, so what sounds great now may get pushed aside for something else later.

    Right now the novels that look good to me for summer make quite a mix:

    1) R.U.R by Karel Copek
    2) The War of the Newts by Karel Copek
    3) The Sacred Book of the Werewolf by Victor Pelevin
    4) The Fire Engine That Disappeared by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo (mystery)
    5) A Dark Matter by Peter Straub
    6) The Sinful Ones by Fritz Leiber
    7) Kraken by China Mieville
    8) The Accursed by Claude Seignolle
    9) Farthing by Jo Walton
    10) Tamsin or The Folk of the Air by Peter Beagle

    And this doesn't include a couple of anthologies and a couple of collections that I'm eyeing, nor my recurring thoughts on finally tackling Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, though in summer my reading rarely gets that ambitious.

    After, in some as yet unknown order:
    Wise Man's Fear, Rothfuss
    White Luck Warrior, Bakker
    Retribution Falls, Wooding
    Soon, I hope:
    A Dance with Dragons, Martin

    I find having a Kindle is terrible (or great depending on how you look at it) for accumulating books. I can be bored at work, and happily spend 30 min or so browsing amazon. 5 clicks later and my wallet is lighter and my reading list longer!

    I am also one of those people who tend to only know the next book that they will read, rather than have a whole list planned out. Until this lunchtime my next book was the Evolutionary void by Hamilton. However, having read the thread on Repairman Jack over my lunch break, deciding to add the keep to my reading list and then noticing it will be next months book club read I may switch to that. I have never been part of a book club and it may be fun.

    Other than those two I suspect my next few books will come from the following (although there are a few general fiction books that I may throw in as well)

    The Gathering Storm by Jordan (although its been so long since I read the others in this series I am not sure how this will go)
    Polity Agent by Asher
    Steel Remains by Morgan
    The Thousandfold Thought by Bakker
    The Windup Girl by Bacigalupi
    Twleve by Jasper Kent
    Kraken by Mieville
    The Passage by Cronin
    Changes by Butcher

    I have more lined up, but (at present) these are the ones I most fancy reading.
