    [face_laugh] Well, have them ship it there :p

    That sounds cute! And I'm surprised - Borders and B&N here have Seattle's Best/Starbucks in a lot of the stores.

    I could, but I don't trust my mailbox at uni. [face_laugh]

    We don't have Borders and me going "what does B&N stand for?" makes me think that we don't have that either, whatever it is. :p

    Im going to keep my fingers crossed that I will be able to get Way of Kings before release date!! I have an inside contection that I use the get most SW books early but they arent NEAR as street date protected as something like this might be.

    Nina Kiriki Hoffman's Fall of Light(2009), but I didn't buy it for myself to read, but to give it as a gift.

    Ordered Colleen McCullough's Antony and Cleopatra... book 7 in the Masters of Rome series, and the only one I haven't read before. Wiki claims it focuses on Antony and Cleopatra pretty heavily, but that's probably an exaggeration, as that's not really her style, plus the book extends a good two and a half years after they die. So I'm sure they play a major role... but so would Octavian, naturally.

    The library had to put it down on a shelf below the normal holding area because it was too big to fit among the other books [face_laugh]

    Which really doesn't make much sense to me, but I find it amusing :p

    You trying to bring me down?:p

    Seriously though, I hope this new series is good....I think it will be....I do wonder how many pages the paperback will be??:p


    On a different note...Hopefully ICE's books will help with our Malazan withdrawls! I think Stoneweilder comes out in NOV.

    The Left Hand of God, Paul Hoffman
    Mort, Sir Terry Pratchett
    Thud!, Sir Terry Pratchett

    Has anyone read Left Hand of God? Was an impulse buy as it was a 3 for 2 offer, normally I read alot of reviews before deciding to buy a book or pass on it, but it sounds intriguing. Just wondering what the general consenus was.

    I now have several of the Malzan books after picking up three of them in a sale yesterday. So I'll probably be starting that pretty soon :)

    Also, wow, that series has some really long books. :p

    "Pretty soon" probably means middle of next week or so. Got a couple other "new" books I'll be reading first, not including Towers of Midnight when I get that. But its now moved way up the list.

    PB. It wasn't so much that they were on sale as the bookstore was giving out coupons... but the effect was the same.

    Also, I misspelled Malazan above. Stupid keyboard.
