    Wow that’s a big book haul! I didn’t buy too many I think about 3 for me and 3 as gifts.

  3. The Martian by Andy Weir. Saw him present at the Fremont CWC, he was most excellent. I read the book.

    Two superhero books by local writers! Nobody Gets The Girl by James Maxey and Playing For Keeps by Mur Lafferty.

    I think it was this month: How To Write Dazzling Dialogue by James Scott Bell.

    Another local writer book: Tommy Twice Born by Ameena Saeed. (Note: Has a great cover, but I am not sure how I will like the book. Ameena really believes in reincarnation. I used to, but that was in my previous life.)

    I still read about 20 comic books a month. I am really digging Ms. Marvel, Sensation Stories starring Wonder Woman, and (sound effects: SUPER NERDGASM!!!) Harley Quinn who has Power Girl as a guest star from this month till December, and I think I’m in love.

    P.S. Jodie, you are a lean, green, reading machine!

    20 lbs of books last month! because that is what you do when you live abroad in a non-English speaking company and go back to the US for a trip. 20 lbs of books. (good thing the suitcase has a 50 lb limit)

    I bought one book last month, a bargain hardcover of Forge of Darkness by Steven Erikson. I’ve been reading some of his Malazan Book of the Fallen series, which is wonderful in so many ways. Forge of Darkness is in the same world, but takes place in a much earlier era.

    I don’t buy books that often because I worked in a bookstore for six years and made a point to stockpile books during the times when we got a large discount.

    Well, it’s used book sale season. Actually, it finished up. (Spring and Fall) here. So we bought literally bags of books. Often the last day of a sale is buy books by the bag, so we do that. Our house shows it. We have stacks of books literally everywhere in the house. We even have a bookcase in our kitchen.

    I like how you list books that have been given to you, good idea. I get some paperbacks from giveaways, would be nice to post them. How do you get paperbacks from big publishers?
    Love your blog 🙂

    This picture made my heart speed up. There is not a more beautiful site than a pile of books. 🙂 My mother got me a nightshirt last year that reads: Oops! I bought another stack of books.

    SOOOOO true. It’s hard to buy just one. I frequent used book sales and come home with bags full.

  18. Wow, what an awesome bunch of books. I’ve possibly only bought about eight or so e-books last month, and one of them Amazon indicated to me that I shouldn’t buy it because I already bought it in July! Gah! I have so many books on my reader that I’m now forgetting what I have. I really must read more… or faster… and stop buying books until I read what I have… but some of them sound so interesting and I buy them for later so I won’t forget them. Cycle continues.

    As for NaNoWriMo… I didn’t get started until day 4, and I really should be writing now but I just had to see what you’re up to 🙂 Keep up the good reading/writing!
