Latest haul

It's been completely nuts around here lately, both in terms of the number of things I have to do and the amount that's going on, so posting here has gotten short shrift. Hopefully that will change a little, since for the next of the month I get to focus mostly on finishing the wallet implementation.

I've finished a bunch of books but haven't been writing reviews. That too I'm hoping to change soon. I have one finished to edit tomorrow and another five to write.

I got another Powell's order in, plus I went to the Friends of the Palo Alto Library book sale last weekend with a friend and picked up a bunch more for cheap. Here's the results:

Greg Bear -- / (Slant) (sff)
Hanne Blank -- Virgin (nonfiction)
Berkeley Breathed -- Politically, Fashionably, and Aerodynamically Incorrect (comic strips)
A.S. Byatt -- Possession (mainstream)
Richard Carlson, Ph.D. -- Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... and It's All Small Stuff (nonfiction)
Juan Cole -- Napoleon's Egypt (nonfiction)
Jerome Groopman, M.D. -- How Doctors Think (nonfiction)
Tony Morrison -- Beloved (mainstream)
Vera Nazarian -- Lords of Rainbow (sff)
Karl Schroeder -- Queen of Candesce (sff)
Jon Stewart -- Naked Pictures of Famous People (nonfiction)
J.R.R. Tolkien -- Unfinished Tales (sff)

I already had a copy of Unfinished Tales, but I found a hardcover copy for very little and didn't want to pass that up. I'm slightly annoyed at the excessively long titles of this batch since I'm going to have to fit them into my review pages. *heh*

The Palo Alto book sale is a great chance to pick up classics I'm not sure I'll enjoy, since there's much less investment of money to get them there. Of course, the real problem is the investment of time.

I loved Hanne Blank's VIRGIN--highly recommended.
