So, um, yeah: lesson learned now that I have Stanza installed on the iPhone? I’m totally going to be buying more ebooks. And chances are good that a lot of them will be romance books.
Yes, yes, you may all make jokes about poking me in my romance section now. Well, at least those of you who were working at
Ahem. Anyway, here is a roundup of recent books purchased, both in electronic form and not. First, the physical books:
katatomic‘s Vanished, Book 4 of the Greywalker series. In hardcover. Because I like her Just That Much. rachelcaine‘s newly released Cape Storm, the second to the last of the Weather Wardens series. I am sadly behind on my Rachel Caine and need to have me a marathon of her stuff soon! Paperback.
- Also in paperback, FINALLY, the third book of Kristen Britain’s Green Rider series, The High King’s Tomb.
- Patrick Rothfuss’ Name of the Wind, just so I can see what everybody is on about. Paperback.
And now, the ebooks:
- Rachel Caine’s Devil’s Bargain. Astute followers of this blog may note that I’ve read this one already as a library checkout. This is me now buying my own copy!
- Also by Rachel Caine, Line of Sight, another of her romances. This was one of the Athena Force novels. Should be amusing for sekrit-agenty sorts of stuff.
- Silent on the Moor, by Deanna Raybourn. This is the third of her Julia Grey series, bought in electronic form mostly because they dramatically changed the cover styles for this installment and I disapprove. But I do want to read it, so!
- Comeback, by Doranna Durgin. Who I have loved greatly in the past for her fantasy novels, but she hasn’t done much in that genre lately and I miss her writing, so romance ebook it is!
- And, because I also miss good writing by Elizabeth Lowell and she hasn’t come out with anything new lately, I’ve picked up her quartet of “Only” novels, Only Mine, Only His, Only Love, and Only You.
Grand total of books purchased for the year is now 53. Which coincidentally brings me up about even with the reviews I’ve posted so far, although I’m about to pull ahead on those. This tells me overall that my book buying tends to keep up pretty well with my book reading, even though the turnaround time between “when I purchase” and “when I read” may be huge indeed.
This also tells me that I will definitely need to ration my ebook purchasing because otherwise I could go nuts with this like whoa. No more ebooks at least until paycheck after this next one! *^_^*;;
