Book buying...again...

I really do need to read more. So, I decided to give writerjenn's Summer Reading challenge a go. I don't know if I'll make it considering the size of most of the books in my TBR pile, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

I do have Book 1 of the challenge in my hands. I went to B&N today and came away with 5 books. The first one:

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson (mistborn). I've been waiting for this one and have already cracked open the book. He published this online already, in all of its various draft forms, allowing the reader a rare look at the creative writing process. Even the rough drafts were entertaining.

Besides that I picked up all 4 books of Greg Keyes' Thorn and Bone series. Here are the titles:

  • The Briar King

  • The Charnel Prince

  • The Blood Knight

  • The Born Queen

One last note. I've completely lost count of how many books I've purchased so far this year. All I know is it's a lot.
