    Bought Gaiman's Coraline two days ago. Unfortunately a paperback edition without the cool cover and the illustrations inside . . . But cheaper anyway.

    Ordered Bellwether and Doomsday Book by Connie Willis, Ash by Gentle and The Bone Doll's Twin by Flewelling - they will arrive within the next five days.
    And I ordered Dawnthief by Barclay which hopefully will arrive this week as well.

    This is awful (i'm ashamed!) - i was in Waterstones for literally 5 minutes the other day, and i honestly didn't intend to buy a thing when i went in - i came out with "The Paradise War" by Stephen Lawhead, Sean Russell's "The One Kingdom", the 2nd Wot bk, and the 1st MS&T bk.

    28!!!

    I honestly don't know what possessed me - i KNOW my bookclub has the Lawhead books at least. I must be mad to pay high street prices! *shudder*

    'Tis like the siren's call, Sammie - I'm pleased it doesn't just happen to me!

    Beware the lure of ye old Waterstones, for they attract you with their bright lights and shelves of books.....

    Not a bad selection, though.

    Bright lights.....shelves of books..........large comfy window seats where you can have a leisurely browse.......and a fantasy selection that (for once) is picked out by someone who actually reads the genre........i hate my local Waterstones!

    Hobbit - how do you resist the lure of shiny new books???

    *looks at bank statement*
    *looks at credit card statement*

    The easy solution is.....

    ...don't go shopping;
    ...don't take money or plastic with you....



    Erm.... it is difficult.......and then you've got book clubs and the Internet which mean that you can shop WITHOUT LEAVING HOME....

    ...not to mention people here who suggest lots of 'good stuff'....

    *sigh*

    I just got this novel The Stone Mage & The Sea by a fellow called Shaun Williams. Wasn't really expecting too muhc but it surprised me by being really, really good.

    Alos bought this poetry book, Goddess Of Mercy by S K Kelen (it's not fantasy but I found it all really interesting and multifaceted).
    Well, that's all, dwindling funds make me depressed, no more books til October.

    chocky -

    Flowers for Algenon by someguy
    I didn't know he wrote books on this forum...

    Actually the name you need is Daniel Keyes, and a very good (but very sad) book it is too.

    The rest of the list chocky is very good too (and should keep even you busy for, about 48 hours or so ) I've read all there except Empire of the Sun (though I don't think I finished Crash, either...)

    Gagged Man - the only Sean Williams I know is a recent one called Echoes of Earth - space opera stuff and not bad. As yours is Shaun Williams, it's not one I know - please tell! Don't think it's available in the UK.

    Aaarrrggggghhhh

    Just.....can't........stop......buying.......books !

    Ordered the 3rd WoT from amazon

    Damn their easy "1 click" ordering........

    Sammie why agonize? Just give in and order up to book five of WoT. You'll save time since you'll likely buy them anyway if you already have the first two. That way you can dispense with the waiting and anticipation nagging at you. Perhaps I should recommend only up to book four, but considering the cliffhanger ending to that one you'll want to find out immediately what comes next and book five isn't bad.

    Hobbit,

    You mean people don't do that on purpose ??

    I still have 4 books to pick up this month, they should be out in stores tomorrow. And, as luck would have it, I received a $25 Gift Cert @ Chapters... and also did some computer work on the side and have an extra $100 or so Guess I'll try to buy the new releases and some of my built up to-buy list books...
