Category Archives: book purchase
Yes, I’ve read Snowcrash and a couple of other books by Neal Stephenson. Somehow, this one passed under my radar. I had a book credit, so I thought I’d pick it up.
I’m gearing up for some major reading this year, and I’m buying or digging out a number of books, collections, and short story collections. One of the ones I was looking for was all the Tarzan novels and as long as I was looking for that, I figured I’d find all the John Carter of Mars books. So I hopped onto Amazon and started looking up collections of Edgar Rice Burroughs and saw a lot, but didn’t buy any outright (yet) and I kept digging and digging to see what I could find as I wanted a complete collection of his works, if possible.
Then I discovered that I’d already bough a larger collection of his works. Ah well, this happens. I’d read 2 or 3 of the Tarzan book way back in high school, but much like Conan stories, it’s high time I revisited these works. 2022 will be interesting once I get started.
I’ve been a Scott Sigler Junkie since the first episode of Earthcore dropped on the Dragon Page oh so many years ago. I’m slow, but finally have the ebook for the sequel.
Buying books and reading books are two separate hobbies, let’s be real.
I’ve always wanted to dip my toe into the Wild Cards world, and the first book was on sale for $2.99. The rest are rather expensive and I refuse to pay $14.99 for an ebook. But if G.R.R. Martin is involved with this series, I’m curious.
