My first #bookhaul for 2023. #BlameLitsy for my purchase of Legends & Lattes, I've seen it get lots of love here. I really enjoyed World War Z, so I'm looking forward to Devolution.

Nothing better, after a long day at work where everyone called off and I had to work alone, to come home to some book mail.

The_Book_Ninja They look damn sexy! 3mo
RamsFan1963 @The_Book_Ninja I like my old school science-fiction, short and I don't have to read 5 books to get the whole story. Stand alone sci-fi has just about become a thing of the past, like fantasy has been for many years. 3mo
The_Book_Ninja Where do you buy them? 2nd hand books are so expensive nowadays. They used to be pennies 3mo
RamsFan1963 @The_Book_Ninja Usually off ebay or the local used book store, also any library sales I can catch. You're right though, even used, older paperbacks aren't cheap. These three ran me about 15, which is much less than a hardback book but still not as inexpensive as they used to be. 3mo

It's been too long since I did a nice splurge at the bookstore.
I can never have too many Star Trek novels, and All of the Marvels is something I've been very eager to read. I read Bad Days in History a couple of years ago, I didn't know there was a sequel.

Leftcoastzen Nice haul! 6mo
Meshell1313 Awesome! If I were going to start reading the Star Trek books, which one would you recommend I start with? There‘s sooo many. 6mo
RamsFan1963 Hmmm there are several really good ones. Anything by David Mack or Dayton Ward will be good for anyone no matter your knowledge of Trek lore. A good starting point is the Vanguard series by Mack & Ward. It has both characters from classic original ST and new characters too. 6mo

Graywacke I‘m interested on All the Marvels. I bought it for my son, who likes the Marvel movies, but not books so much. Didn‘t take. But I‘m still eying it for me. 6mo
Meshell1313 @RamsFan1963 awesome! Thank you so much for the tip! I‘m going to check them out! 6mo
PaperbackPirate Hooray for splurges at the bookstore! 📚 6mo

Nothing nicer, after a hard day at work, to come home to a little bookmail. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in Ann Leckie's series. I'm a bit bummed about the James Blish book. Someone tried to remove the price sticker, and did a piss poor job of it. I'll have to try some glue gone to salvage the cover.

Lizpixie I hope the 2nd Ancillary book lives up to the 1st for you👍 6mo

It feels like forever since I made a trip to the used book store. Didn't find much of interest, I was trying to avoid books that were parts of series (gets harder and harder every day).

#nevertoomanybooks #neverenoughshelves

tokorowilliamwallace Some nice vintage picks. I still gotta get through my slim 1970 Andre Norton and should get to one of my vintage/early Cherryh volumes I recently acquired soon. Now that I'm finally through my first Ed McBain I can move on to the other volumes. 7mo

I went to the local library book sale, but sadly not much of interest, lots of romance novels, Clive Cussler, James Patterson and Dick Francis novels. I found a couple of interesting things so no trip is a waste.

vivastory I've had the Cantero on my TBR for awhile now 8mo
Ruthiella Sometimes it is more of a relief to me when I don‘t find a ton of books at a library sale. 😅 8mo
BookDragonNotWorm Those all look really good! 8mo
RamsFan1963 @BookDragonNotWorm I might go back tomorrow. I saw a couple of old Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason paperbacks I might like to get. They were in pretty rough shape but I'd like to try some of the original Perry Mason novels since I always enjoyed the old b&w series. 8mo

New #bookmail from MySciFiClub. I'm glad they're both stand alone stories, I have too many series going now to start more. I've only read Sandman Slim by Kadrey, and I didn't care for it, but this sound interesting. As for the other book, I've not read anything by Guy Gavriel Kay, but I've seen lots of good reviews for him on Litsy & Goodreads.

The_Book_Ninja Yeah, sandman slim? read half of book one and wondered what the fuss was about 8mo

Time for some new books since I finished, for now, the #bookbuyingdiet
The Big Kahuna - I need to finish the last two books in the Fox & O'Hare series #FinishTheSeries
Rabbits - I've heard good and bad things about this, but it sounds like a real mind f@ck, and I like those kind of books.
The Misfit Soldier - A new author for me, but it's a standalone novel which is a plus.

BeeMagical Rabbits has been on my list for a long time!! Can‘t wait to hear how it is! 10mo

My order from World of Books was 2 days late, an ominous foreshadowing for future holiday shipping, but better late than never.

Popped into Goodwill this evening, and found these three goodies. Coincidentally, I almost bought On Target earlier in the day at BAM, but decided to wait. I guess the book gods wanted me to have it for a buck instead of paying 9.99 😁😁

Texreader Score! 1y
Leftcoastzen I love the randomness of thrifted books ! It‘s especially cool when you get to pay less for something you were really wanting. 1y
