You know how I said I was going to Third Place this afternoon because they had a warehouse sale in progress? Well, I went. And while the warehouse sale actually didn’t have anything I wanted, I nevertheless seem to have walked out with four books anyway:
- The City & the City, by China Mievelle, because it’s finally out in trade paperback. SF.
- Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang, by Kate Wilhelm, because I’ve been meaning to read this for ages. SF.
- Starfish, by Peter Watts, because of generally wanting to support that gentleman what with all his US border troubles. And because reading PDFs on my Nook is less convenient than I’d hoped, and most of his work isn’t actually available in other Nook-friendly formats. SF.
- A Companion to Wolves, by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette, because several of my and
solarbird‘s online friends have been swooning over this one and I’ve been meaning to read it, and it’s also not available in Nook-friendly formats! Fantasy.
And this brings me up to 138 for the year!
