Small haul

I haven't made one of these posts in a while. I've been very restrained about my book purchases. But I did place a small Powell's order and the out of the blue someone sent me a gift for help with WebAuth, which was really unexpected and nice.

Candas Jane Dorsey -- Black Wine (sff)
Thomas A. Limoncelli -- Time Management for System Administrators (non-fiction)
Alan Moore, Kevin O'Neill, et al. -- The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (graphic novel)
Robert M. Pirsig -- Lila (non-fiction)
Justina Robson -- Natural History (sff)

The time management book is excellent so far. The real test will be how many useful practices I get from it over time, but it's a fantastic read regardless. Recommended.

In other news, Geoff Ryman won the Tiptree Award for Air, an honor that it thoroughly deserves.

Currently reading: Time Management for System Administrators by Thomas A. Limoncelli, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, and Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky.

Heh. What's the Limoncelli book like?

I'll be interested in hearing what you think of Beauty. It's been a long time since I read it, but at the time it was good enough to get me interested in reading other Tepper, with other parts that left me feeling mildly dirty and a couple bits that squicked me.
