ARMOR: by John Steakly
+1. Never read Consider Phlebas, but I have The Player of Games from the same series, and it's awesome.

Rocket Boys by Homer Hickam and Rocket Men by Craig Nelson.
I collect books about manned spaceflight.
Requiem for the Toledo Express. It's a book about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald by the only living member of the design team.
Fences by August Wilson
I'm thinking of buying The Walking Dead graphic novel.
Yeah, that single novel.
It's all packed into three monstrous books. How is it compared to the show? How is it in general?
Gales of November by Robert J Hemming
Picked up The Ancient Curse by Valerio Massimo Manfredi and Doctor Who: The Gallifrey Chronicles by Lance Parkin yesterday. Both were on a charity book display in a local shop.
War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy

The Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought, 1988 edition
The Turn of the Screw and other stories, Henry James
Neuromancer, William Gibson
The Magic in the Weaving, Tamora Pierce
The Writer's Journey, Christopher Vogler
Honor Harrington: Flag in Exile, David Weber

...yes, the Save the Children Fund had their annual secondhand booksale. This lot? $86.00, at an average of about $3 per book. Rock on.
That's not bad. The two paperbacks I bought from the charity display were £1 each. At that price you're not really bothered if they aren't up to par. Here regular paperbacks go for around £7.99 and higher.
Spellfire and Crown Of Fire by Ed Greenwood.
Over here it's a good $12 - $15 or so for regular paperback. Your Book Depository site offers free postage, which is a very nice inducement to order from the UK for the more specialist or hard-to-find stuff.
I order a lot from Amazon UK for the discount and I get free shipping if I order enough. Works for me! With hardcovers averaging £20 I'll take any discount I can get on those. I'd say the bulk of the HCs I order are SW. (Kenobi will be the next one.)
Beyond Varallan. A Stardoc novel by S.L. Viehl.
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.
Put an Amazon UK order in yesterday for SW: Kenobi, Agent of the Empire vol 2, and Countdown City by Ben Winters.
Kenobi by John Jackson Miller
Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons and Ulysses by James Joyce.
For myself, apart from comics, Skagboys by Irvine Welsh.
(Most recent purchases were gifts for my missus - the box-set of ASOIAF and the collections which contain the 'Dunk & Egg' short stories set in Westeros - which, of course, I get to read as well)
Next purchase for myself will be Rinzler's The Making of Return of the Jedi, followed by The Fat Lady Sang, by Robert Evans.
Necronomicon - a collection of H.P Lovecraft stories - Friday at the local Waterstones bookstore.
When I finally finish A Dance with Dragons...
2. The Third Kingdom by Terry Goodkind
