    Stopped by a B&N today, as requested by Mrs. PW, for stationary. In picking over the Bargain Priced books, I picked up four. I got a classic, a fantasy fiction novel and two sci-fi pick-ups.

    The Wilding - Friedman
    The Armageddon Reef - Weber

    I think Mrs. PW needs you to shop for stationary at Office Depot, so you don't add to your to be read pile. Of course you could always wind up buying a new shiny computer or stapler if you go to Office Depot. So maybe BN is a better place to shop for stationary.

    Amen, brother. I'm going to have to start taking pictures and putting them in the bookshelf picture thread. I'm waiting until I get somewhere near Mark's level of books. Uh, probably won't be too soon.

    I got given Watchmen (it is Sci-Fi!) and PF Hamilton's Pandora's Star.

    Might actually drop everything I'm reading for it, been waiting a fair while to get a copy of it. Well, once I've finished Watchmen of course, which I'm loving

    Just bought :

    Alastair Reynolds - Chasm City
    Alastair Reynolds - Redemption Ark
    Alastair Reynolds - Absolution Gap
    Alastair Reynolds - Century Rain

    ... and I'm planning on getting all those I'm missing!

    Been a while since I last bought books, I was binging on Iain M. Banks recently but I suffered from "Banks burnout syndrome", especially after reading Revelation Space between Look to Winward and Inversions. None of the other Culture novels seem to match the sense of urgency of Consider Phlebas and Use of Weapons (and Against a Dark Background). I can see where the novels with within the Culture narrative, but there's just not enough going on.

    So Reynolds, and I plan to purchase House of Suns and The Prefect and Pushing Ice..

    How did I miss this. Actually, I've not read it yet, but had heard plenty of good things about Weber, that I've stocked up. I picked up this single Honor book, and two of the books from the Safehold series.

    Just bought Judas Unchained, by Hamilton.
