Boba Fett Lives
I used a gift card to pick up Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn. I have wanted to read something of his alone since he took over for Jordan and this one seemed like the right one to start with. Also bought G G Kay's Under Heaven after the Kay discussion here pre-christmas. I am really excited to get into both as soon as I am done Hunter's Run, a great piece of sci-fi.

It is decided - I shall start with Kay then! I do so love his writing. Thanks for the thoughtful review.

I just bought Redick's River of Shadows. This didnt come with a map, why would the first two paperbacks in the series have maps and not a trade paperback?

I just got the first four dark tower trade PB's from the thrift store for $6 total. They are in perfect condition so I am pretty stoked. I was just considering starting these up.

and I like to party.
Seriously, if you already have a book buying problem (like I'm sure many here do like me), do NOT get a Kindle or other eReader. It's way too easy to blow your money. "It's just 2.99" no longer is a deal when you do it 20 times.

A few days ago, I pre-ordered False Covenant by Ari Marmell. Cannot wait

Apologies for the double post, but not long ago I pre-ordered Shadow's Master by our own Jon Sprunk, and I also picked up Cabal by Clive Barker. I'm waiting for a copy of The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima.

Just ordered The Whitefire Crossing by Courtney Schafer. Really looking forward to seeing rock climbing in fantasy, it should be really interesting. Plus I've heard some good things about the book, so hopefully I'll enjoy it.

Percepliquis - Sullivan
I have Sullivan's first omnibus, courtesy of the grandest gentleman in all of the kingdom of Jersey. I'll be picking up the other two as well, but had to have the complete set of art from that series. There's something to be said for the more subtle, subdued approach.

Priestess of the White - Trudi Canavan
Saw the HC on Amazon, used, for £2.80 - absolutely had to. Heard it's just like her first series which, bar the poor final volume, I really liked.

Heirs of the Blade - Tchaikovsky
I had to get it at Amazon.uk. I generally prefer to use BD, but they have it listed as unavailable still. What gives?
