I've just bought.... (Fantasy, version VI)
The old thread was 11 pages long, so . . .
I went to Amazon to check out a title mentioned in the October reading thread. I didn't buy that one but I did buy Locke and Key, a new novel by Joe Hill (I loved 20th Century Ghosts and Heart-Shaped Box), and two horror collections -- Wastelands (apocalyptic stuff) and The Living Dead (zombies).
I suspect I have some of those short stories in other books, but I don't care, because I was in the mood for some horror. It's been awhile.

Thanks Auntie P for the update: the old thread is HERE if anyone needs it.
I bought The Living Dead based on Rob's recommendation, just in time for Halloween. Looks good.
Isn't Locke and Key a graphic novel?

Locke & Key was terrific, I picked it up in single issues. The art was appropriately creepy.
My review for The Living Dead will be going up next week in time for Hallowe'en.

I picked up a big o pile from my local library Monday:
The Almost Moon by Alice Seabold (I loved Lovely Bones, and her autobiographical novel Lucky was moving as well. I didn`t buy this due to bad reviews, but I saw it on the shelf.
Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella (Not my usual thing, but its been topping my local bestseller lists for months, so I got curious)
City at the End of Time by Greg Bear (Started this, but after about 100+ pages, I found I was getting bored, and not really caring about the characters. So its my to return pile already.)
Darwin's Radio by Greg Bear Reading now and loving it.
Anvil of Stars by Greg Bear (Yeah, reason for all the Greg Bear ones is that I am trying out sci-fi authors and someone here recommended him)
Dark Moon by David Gemmel
Jonathan Strange and Dr. Norrel Found some recommendations here!
Spook by Mary Roach (Non-fiction science book - I loved her book about sex, Bonk. Humourous science, my fav.)
Cast in Shadow by Michelle West

I just bought another copy of "The Princess Bride" I lost the original copy my dad bought for me when I was about 6. I was so scared to tell him, because that particular copy has a special place in my heart. But he went out and bought me another one, although it isn't as cool looking. I hate new covers. Oh well, now I can reread it for the upteenth time. It never gets old.

I'm really getting my money's worth out of Amazon Prime. I ordered the book on Monday and it arrived today (Wednesday).
Anyone know if there will be more stories about this family and that thing? I wouldn't mind a prequel.
