Slightly excessive haul

Okay, yes, I've been buying a lot of books. I seem to be ensuring the rate of acquisition outpaces the rate of consumption even though I've gotten back into reading daily on the train. Well, also, Diane Duane had a crisis and therefore a book sale, so I picked up a whole pile of stuff that I don't have an immediate intention to read.

I still have three written but not yet posted reviews to go through, which are waiting on me finding time to do some editing, and another finished book to review. I'm finishing more non-fiction lately than fiction, possibly due to a less-than-ideal choice of the fiction book for my mood.

The problem with non-fiction is that non-fiction authors keep recommending other interesting-sounding books to read!

Phew.

You'll notice a few in here that I've already read and reviewed.

The anthologies, the Backman, and a few others are physical books my parents were getting rid of.

So much good stuff in there I really want to read! And of course I've now started various other personal projects that don't involve spending all of my evenings and weekends reading.
