Treason's Harbour by Patrick O'Brian. It was only $4.99. You say no.
I've never heard of that - what's it about?
Treason's Harbour is book nine the Aubery/Maturin series.
Picked up book 10 of the Dresden Files, Small Favor at Barnes & Noble as a publisher's remainders. $6. I love the Dresden Files series.
Picked up 3 more Fiest book in reading order except they didnt have book 3 so I ordered it. A Darkness at Sethanon, Blood of the Prince, Kings Buckaneer. Silverthorn will come in a few days.
Er... I think the last one I bought was the fifth Percy Jackson book. I don't do a lot of book shopping now, I prefer to get things from the library. I'm completely out of book shelf space, so I only buy books if I know for certain that I'm going to be re-reading them.
I'm exactly the same Nice choice of book, though.
Well the last book, or books, actually, that I bought were the Star Wars MedStar Duology, just because watching the Clone Wars got me interested in Barriss Offee.
The last non-Star Wars book, though, I think I bought in this genre had to be Wolf's Blood by Jane Lindskold.
Silverthorn finally came in. Just got it an hr or so ago.
Just got Turnabout and South China Sea, both Predator books.
Preadator as in Arnold movie Preadator?
Ordered From Haka to Hollywood, Temuera Morrison's biography, from Amazon US. Even with the currency exchange and shipping it was cheaper there than on Amazon UK.
I just bought Ken Follets The Pillars of the Earth in light of the new mini on Starz.
Well after all the suggestions I received, and the $25 B&N Gift Card I received recently, I settled on Anne Bishop's "Daughter of the Blood". So far so good!
EXCELLENT choice!! Anne Bishop is one of my favorites I recommend pretty much everything she's written
And WOAH, Pillars mini? I'll have to check that out. It's an awesome book. Very intense - my head was spinning by the end
Ah you read it? I hope it is a great read. I decided to buy it after the first of eight episodes premired on Starz last Friday I liked it so much. Ian McShane(from Deadwood!!!!!!!!) playing the greedy Bishop is great. Plus the girl that is playing Aieal(sp)Bartholowmls daughter is so pretty! Im in LOVE! lol
I'll definitely have to check it out And yeah, it's a seriously awesome book. I mean, there are a couple bits in the middle where it can drag, but overall, pretty fantastic read.
I bought a few of them a couple of years back. If memory serves, the Quality Paperback Book Club was selling them for $5.99 and $9.99. I should check again to see if they're still doing that. Or if there's still a Quality Paperback Book Club.
My favorite Peanuts collection is the Peanuts Treasury - it's an oversized hardcover reprinting stuff from the late 60s, I think. The nice thing about it is it includes a lot of continuing story lines - Lucy burying Linus's blanket, waiting for the eclipse, lots of Joe Shlabotnick, etc.
Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic though I havn't started it yet as I've got a few other books to finish first. Though I'm eager to see of Discworld lives up to the hype.
Just bought WOrld Without End by Ken Follet. It is the "sequel" to Pillars taking place 200yrs later in Kingsbrige.
This Weak i brought Running With the Pack, The Restoration Game
Let me know how World wothout End is - I haven't read it yet.
Went to the store to buy the Mistborn Trilogy and they didn't have it. One of the stores did have the final book in the trilogy, but I didn't want to buy it without first reading the second. I did glimpse at the summary on the back, and then immediately regretted it because it contained spoilerish events that occur in the second book. I KNEW I shouldn't have done that!
So, to content myself, I bought Warbreaker because I really wanted to buy a Sanderson book and I figure I'll be rereading Warbreaker plenty of times.
and at the same time Do they do orders?
Yes, but by the time I order it, I'll be three hours away at uni.
On the bright side, the little independent store where I bought Warbreaker has set up a sweet, little cafe. It's cute! And adorable! I love cafes in bookstores - this is why I prefer independent stores to the mainstream chains (except Chapters, which has Starbucks in it), because they do stuff like this.
