Well, I went ahead and took Michael Sullivan's offer, and bought his first 3 books of Riyria Revelations:
Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Fair price, plus signed copies... could hardly go wrong here.

Avempartha - Sullivan
Nyphron Rising - Sullivan

It arrived today and it is beautiful, although I'm reasonably sure there is no such thing as an ugly omnibus.

Yeah, I got it about a week ago. I like how it looks also, but it'll be a while before I can get to read it.

I just bought Titus and Atreus by Meridi Myers on the recommendation of a friend who read it and loved it. I think it's a fairly new release, but I decided to give it a try because it sounded interesting. I ended up really enjoying the book and finished it in just a few days. Has anyone else read this and do they know if there is a sequel planned?
I also picked up Winter's Heart and I'm looking forward to the read.

Assassin's Quest by Hobb.
The way I see it is... I have 2 of the books, I've got some money left from Christmas, why not? Was going to order Feist's Magician, but I decided it's best to not start another series until I've at least finished Farseer and Dark Tower.

and I like to party.
Shadow and Claw - the first two of the Book of the New Sun
I have a decent amount of Christmas money, but I kept myself from spending it all at one time. I've been wanting to read Gene Wolfe for a while, so here's a starting place.
