Gimli The Dwarf -> What books have you bought recently? (7/9/2007 6:55:00 AM)

We have similar threads for DVDs and music, so why not books? I did a search to see if there was such a thread but I couldn't find anything. If there is, I apologise.

Anyway, I bought all of these yesterday.

These are ones I've added to my library in the last month or so.

Evessa -> RE: What books have you bought recently? (7/9/2007 11:31:53 AM)

Wow that's quite a list of books you've got there Gimli!

Are you sure you're not Johnny 5? [sm=33.gif]




MOTH -> RE: What books have you bought recently? (7/9/2007 12:15:36 PM)

bought these on my last browse through Waterstones about a month ago.

Excellent book - history, character study, war, love all rolled into one

[image]http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/51uELur60UL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-dp-500-arrow,TopRight,45,-64_OU02_AA240_SH20_.jpg[/image]
Short, sharp and very good indeed

[image]http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/51M1RM7SZPL._AA240_.jpg[/image]
Heard a lot of good things about Mankell so decided to try this - very good so far.

It's a long one, so might wait for my next holiday




trussedfund -> RE: What books have you bought recently? (7/9/2007 12:25:36 PM)



If the picture doesn't work it's Musashi by Eichi Yoshikawa, a bit of an epic read - but well worth it.



Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson (just started this so don't really have anything to say about it yet) and



Before they are hanged by Joe Abercrombie which is also great!




Woger -> RE: What books have you bought recently? (7/9/2007 3:14:20 PM)

Just ordered Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy; supposed to be very good.

Mogwai -> RE: What books have you bought recently? (9/9/2007 9:32:20 PM)

Grass by Sheri S. Tepper

I'm cutting down on buying or taking out books from the library until I've reduce the number of unread books on my shelf.

I think you should read this first Amelie_Scotland - you can't beat a bit of Wyndham!   Plus I always have been a huge fan of the film with Howard Keel and the 1980s UK series![:D]

First edition signed by Eoin Colfer as well as the proof copy of The Eternity Code

Loads more besides.  I spent over 300 on books this weekend.

The Gemmell and the Hobbs books are both for sale.

Great Books. Perfume is my personal fave.

Just finished WWZ a few days ago actually.

Ian Rankin: The Naming of The Dead. Penultimate Rebus Novel. Cracking stuff.

David Gemmell: Shield of Thunder.

I would have bought Rankin's Exit Music and the final part of Gemmell's Troy trilogy but I'm a tight git and will wait for the paperbacks.

I also recently got Homer's Odyssey. Very good it is too.

Looking forward to reading this. I would be suspicious of an organization that would have me as a member!
