  1. Gee, going European with dates these days? Or is this another sign of my cluelessness? 😀

  2. I prefer computer ordering for dates: 2019-11-01. Always sorts correctly. I think that format has an ISO standards number but never remember what it is.

  3. As for books I always like Charlene Harris and Mercedes Lackey. That one at the bottom of the stack looks huge. That would be a real time investment to read. I wonder how those epic tomes get people to read and review their ARCs. By the time I got to the end I’d have probably forgotten how it started, and I’m someone who can re-read the entire Wheel of Time series in a couple of weeks.

  4. “Straight Outta Deadwood” sounds great. It feels like something Critical Role is doing – “Undeadwood”!

  5. Apologies if you’ve answered this before, but since a) you obviously get many more books than you can read, or keep; and b) I imagine there are only so many venues in your town that can make use of donated books, may I ask what you end up doing with them all?

  6. I read Weber’s book in hardcover. It’s quite good, but he’s a hard man on mmpb spines, isn’t he?

  7. My copy of _Labyrinth of the Spirits_ arrived last week. That is one big, beautiful book! I look forward to reading it, though it may take some time to get from one cover to the other.

  8. Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s finale is a masterpiece! Try to read the rest of the magnificent series before if you haven’t.

  9. The newest part of the Honor Harrington series looks interesting…
    I stopped reading the series a few years back, I should probably get back to it

  10. Hmmm, haven’t seen anything from Wil McCarthy in a while, and he gave me some great reads with The Collapsium series. Unnatural Magic intrigues me the most of the authors new to me. Possibly it’s because a young woman going to the city to study magic and encountering citizen trolls reminds me pleasantly of Terry Pratchett.
