And I'm jealous. At least my copy has shipped...
Oh, I'm totally jealous. But I still approve
Its ok though cause I know RJ will get revenge on me when he gets the book in a few days and STILL reads it faster then me!!!!
Hey RJ I paid 21.60 something all told with taxes on the 29.99 isbn price. WHat did you pay altogther after shipping?
$15.99 with free shipping. (Initially it was $16.19, then it dropped to $15.99 and Amazon refunded the $.20 )
So that end is all good for me. It just takes longer
Wow that is a big price difference, but that wait would be killer indeed...
Since I've been getting SFF books recently, I figured I might as well post 'em here.
I picked up Dune, a Douglas Adams book (So Long, and Thanks For All the Fish), and a couple of Star Wars books at Half Priced Books last week. I've not started any of them so far, but I'm looking forward to reading them, especially Dune.
I'm glad you stopped by! Have you read other Adams books? (That's the fourth in the series.)
'bout time you showed up here, McClain We've been talking about these via PM for a while now
Yeah, R...J, I finally figure that it was time.
Yep, I've read the first two Adams books, and enjoyed them. The used bookstore that I went to didn't have the third one, so Fish will have to wait for a while. Which is entirely fine, considering my backlog of books these days.
The new wheel of time book.
A heads-up for UK folks. I was in my local Waterstones today and they had all of their fiction paperbacks on sale at 3 for the price of 2. This included sci-fi, mystery, and horror. If you want to stock up for winter reading or Christmas gifts now's the time!
I've been going crazy with ordering from Book Depository lately. Got The Deed of Paksennarion by Elizabeth Moon (again- I think I own three copies now, but I justify it by telling myself they're on a different continent, so ...) and am thinking of ordering the latter two books of the Mistborn trilogy despite having already read them in the library. My bookshelf is so empty ...
If yu liked the Mistborn books enought to reread them, they'd be worth the buy, IMO.
I do, and I think I will. I'm just trying not to go on a dangerous-for-my-wallet book-buying spree, because I am totally capable of that.
I have to hold myself back from that often
Yesterday I ran and bought The Fires of Heaven at the used book store. I had previously bought the first seven books of WoT but that one was missing. I was holding out and said I would pay full price only if they didn't get a used one in before I got to it.
Checked on-line and saw they got a used one in so I raaaannn after work. Also picked up Rebecca by Du Maurier cuz they had a copy and it's a classic.
Bought The Black Prism by Brent Weeks HC.
Rebecca is amazing I just hate that Rebecca's cousin burns Manderly down - JUST when Max has gotten away with killing Rebecca. And I didn't really understand why they went abroad after that, since he'd been vindicated, and everyone thought it was a suicide.
Just got the Lies of Locke Lemora, it's too bad I have so much on my reading plate right now. It looks really good.
You'll find some differing opinions on it here Its one of the few that Nat and I disagree on
What's your opinion?
Kinda meh. Decent enough that I got and read the sequel, but I'm not a huge fan.
Nat, on the other hand, loves it
Me as well. I thought they were both very good reads.
The Locke books are AWESOME. And that is a FACT.
I was about to add, Havac loves it too Yeah, I really enjoyed it, and I recommend it.
