After Dark - Haruki Murakami
The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I have 40 or so books left untouched so these two will likely sit for a year before I finally read them. I'll buy the UK editions of ASoIaF because I like the paper and cover better than the US editions I have.

I am super excited. My copy of "Captain Vorpatril`s Alliance" has changed to processing rather than awaiting publication. I might have it soon. Yay.

The Half Price Books down the road was having a Black Friday sale/event where they handed out tote bags with $5 gift cards to the first hundred people in the door and had 15% off all purchases, so I headed on over to stand in line in the freezing ass cold when I got off work that morning. Our financial situation ain't the greatest, so I only walked away with three books, but I'd been looking for two of them for a while and just couldn't walk away without the other.

Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon
Underworld by Don DeLillo
The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño

Well, "Santa" just pre-ordered Merchant of Dreams for me. It's the second book in the Night's Masque series by Anne Lyle, a historical-fantasy series set in Elizabethan England. The first book (Alchemist of Souls) was one of my favorite reads last year.
