    Picked up four new books today, two of them prompted by a certain discussion here:

    The Thousandfold Thought by Bakker (will reread 1, and finally read 2 which has been shelved for far too long)

    The Blade Itself by Abercrombie

    The Gambler's Fortune Juliet E McKenna - number 3 in her Einarinn series.

    And as a whimsical purchase I, Coriander, which is a children's fairy story. Looks lovely and sweet.

    A few new purchases turned up:
    Black Sheep, Ben Peek
    The Solaris Book of New Fantasy

    And a few outside genre / non fiction (for those who for some reason are interested in my reading habits outside of fantasy and my recent thirst for non-fiction):
    No Country For Old Men, Cormac Mcarthy (been on the to-buy list for a while, and had to get it after seeing the film)
    Blink, Malcolm Gladwell
    Freakonomics, Steven D. Levitt
    Salt: A World History, Mark Kurlansky

    No Country For Old Men was a wonderful film. As was There Will Be Blood. I saw them last week, and loved them both.

    And I just picked up The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes. I've only read the first 7 chapters or so, but I really like it so far.

    I also nabbed The Sirens of Titan by Vonnegut and Norwegian Wood by Murakami on my last book store run. I'm already a big fan of both authors, and I've been meaning to read both of these for a long time now. Finally picked them up, though.

    Black Sheep by Ben Peek arrived yesterday; I'm still waiting for a copy of the VanderMeers' The New Weird to show up, probably tomorrow.

    I picked up The Words of Making by David Forbes, the second book in his Osserian Saga. I reviewed the first one, The Amber Wizard, when it first published and enjoyed it.

    Out of interest - do you read Peek's Live Journal?

    I do, yes. I've been reading it for about a year now, and been meaning to get his book for almost as long.
    (It's a pattern I've had with a few authors in the last couple of years--reading their blogs for a while before any of their fiction. It's how I came to Elizabeth Bear, John Scalzi, and Jay Lake. Still meaning to get Nick Mamatas' Move Under Ground as well.)

    Move Under Ground is on my to-buy list
    I'd been meaning to buy Black Sheep for a while as well, and his recent blog post about its sales record prompted me to buy it (even though I agree with Jeff Vandermeer comments about the post)

    Ordered a used copy of The Scar by China Mieville from an Amazon seller. Let's see how it compares to PST.
