I had quite a few books that I was interested in buying but since a couple of weeks ago Bookdepository increased their prices. No longer are there the good specials of 50% off for pre-orders. So it looks like I'll be buying less for the time being, though UF titles seem to have stayed about the same.
Here are my latest buys:
Mark of the Demon - Diana Rowland
Shotgun Princess - Lucy A. Snyder

Ordered Venom by Jennifer Estep
Received the whole Joe Pitt series by Charlies Huston. The books seems quite small compared to other books in the genre, between 250-300 pages a book.

The Alchemist, Paolo Bacigalupi
The Executioness, Tobias Buckell

Just ordered a copy of Michael J Sullivan's Wintertide, from his website, signed and dedicated. I'll probably buy the e-book version as well, since I want to get reading this ASAP and apparently he won't be able to ship for another week or so. One of my most anticipated reads of the year.

I have all of his novels dedicated and had them mailed to me in Korea. Shipping is really quick, less than 10 days to go half-way around the world.

Yeah, I bought The Emerald Storm from his site as well and was impressed with the shipping. But I guess he hasn't received his shipment of books yet, and won't for a few days, so he won't be able to ship for a week or so. And I don't mind spending the extra $4 to get the e-book format, to support the author.

Boba Fett Lives
On my trip to New York I went to the Strand (drool - what a store) and picked up a beautiful edition of the Hobbit from 1966. It is a Green hardcover with Tolkien's illustrations, housed inside a green slide in/out box type thing. It is in mint like condition, the spine looks wonderful. It was a great moment. So fun.

We Read for Light
Yes! I own a copy of that edition. My two kids, both now in their thirties, went through two out-loud readings of it with me. It's a treasure.
