    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.

    Give The Summer Tree to your mum - she might well like it! Mine did

    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.

    dont worry i knew that, just didn;t want to buy the whole trilogy at once, never read anything from the author so wanted to start from the true beginning.

    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).

    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.

    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.
