Book update!

I came to the decision that since I’d violated my New Books Hiatus by buying that antho (although I still excuse myself for that on the grounds of Special Circumstances, and also, supporting userinfojpsorrow), I am therefore delaying buying new books at least for a few more days even though the Hiatus is technically over!

So I’ll be going at least until my paycheck which should drop this weekend, or if I feel really virtuous, the next paycheck. 😉 I know a lot of fine, fine authors have had new titles come out lately, and I know that Good and Virtuous Readers Who Want to Support Fine Authors should buy them during their release weeks… but hey, folks, still trying to come out of rent shortage here. I’ll buy those books ASAP, I promise!

Besides, I’m still working through the Great Amelia Peabody Reread, and it’ll be a bit yet before I’ll be done with that. Just finished The Ape Who Guards the Balance, and will now be breaking out of publication order to jump to Guardian of the Horizon, which is actually the one that’s next chronologically. Then I’ll read the new one, A River in the Sky. Then it’ll be back to finishing out in publication order, picking up again with The Falcon at the Portal. Which, by the way, will probably be the next ebook I buy since my only copy of that right now is in hardback and I don’t want to haul that to and from work.

Meanwhile, I’m eying tasty new releases by userinfomizkit, userinfokatatomic, userinfoseanan_mcguire, Mary Robinette Kowal, a couple of shiny new Carina Press releases, and a Diane Duane I saw get recommended over on Lots of fun new stuff to read.

But it’s going to have to wait till I’m done with Amelia and Emerson!
