Inter spem metumque iacto
Do bear in mind that this is the first in a trilogy - it doesn't make all too much sense to just read the first book! The other two are The Wandering Fire and The Darkest Road - together, they're classic.

The packet just came. Erikson's Malazan series (1-6) in the new edition paperpacks. What a pretty sight. Malazan seems to be The fantasy book series of the moment, I'm very eager to get me hands on these.

Found Goodkind's Stone of tears and David Farland's The sum of all men. I've heard the Runelords is a quite gripping read. Hope I have the time to find out.

I bought The Handmaiden's Tale by Margaret Atwood and Indigo by Graham Joyce at a library sale for a grand total of a dollar. I love library sales. I also ordered The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway and Yellow Blue Tibia by Adam Roberts from The Book Depository.

Grabbed these at B&N tonight. An enjoyable evening.
Firethorne - Micklem
Mistborn - Sanderson
And then placed an order when I got home for
Waking Beauty - Witcover
The Year of Our War - Swainston
World's End - Chadbourn
Any input on which I should start first?

I was attempting to abstain from purchasing books for a couple of months. Along comes Pat with a stellar testimonial for Abercrombie's Best Served Cold by GRR Martin. Yeah, fingers started typing and wallet started itching.
Best Served Cold - Abercrombie
Seeker's Bane - Hodgell (hey, I've got the first omnibus and it puts me over $25 - i.e. free shipping).

Boba Fett Lives
Picked up Robin Hobb's Assasins Apprentice on the weekend at the local used book store. I am looking forward to giving her a try as there is often a lot of good feedback about her on this site.

and I like to party.
I had some fun at the used books store recently...
Mistborn: The final empire - Sanderson
The Black Company - Cook
The Wasted Lands - King
Transformation - Berg (on recommendation from PeterWilliam, thanks...hopefully)

Seyonne has become a favorite character. The storyline of his life through Transformation is gripping and relentless.

Man, I went and hit a few bookstores...came home empty handed. Just not sure what I wanna read next, and what I wanted is nowhere to be found.
