New additions to my library in July
I got a lot of great books for my birthday this year, and I’m excited to start devouring them. Here’s the list, in case anyone wants to weigh in on their favorites:
- Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology by Eric Drexler — I read this in college, but this is the first copy on my shelf.
- Bright of the Sky (The Entire and the Rose) by Kay Kenyon – I’ve been wanting to read this since I heard her interview on AISFP.
- Woken Furies: A Takeshi Kovacs Novel by Richard K. Morgan – you can read my review of Broken Angels here or here.
- Thirteen by Richard Morgan
- City of Saints and Madmen by Jeff Vandermeer
- Air: Or, Have Not Have by Geoff Ryman – this has been recommended to me by more than one person as something I’d like since I work for Novica.
- The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon – I also recently picked up his award winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
- The Next Fix by Matt Wallace
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer – I actually bought this for myself. I want to see what all the hype is about.
Except for the two books by Richard Morgan, all the books were from different publishers and while they were all trade paperbacks the formats differed rather drastically. I mean, they were all still book shaped, but the quality of the paper, the dimensions, the construction of the cover, etc. — all that stuff was pretty different and a neat juxtaposition.
