I’m in a quandary at the moment, I so want to take part in Self-Publishing month, in September, but I also want to indulge in reading from my TBR. Especially as I need (points finger at partner) to shrink it in order to be allowed to indulge my other passion: buying books. And even if I were the quickest reader on the planet, which I most definitely am not. I still couldn’t read all the books I want, even in a month of months.
So, something, somewhere, is going to have to give. One of those things will not be leaving out the buying of books.
The books I’m looking at as September buys are:
- ARCHITECTS OF MEMORY by Karen Osborne
- THE PHLEBOTOMIST by Chris Panatier
- CHAOS VECTOR by Megan E. O’Keefe
- THE BONE SHIPS by R. J. Baker
Also in contention, though these are hardbacks [see list below] I’m pushing it if I stare bold faced at my partner and claim 3 hardback buys in one month. Though, it is true, I can argue the “we’re not going anywhere, and spending money!” angle, but then again, maybe not, Even if I so want these titles like, yesterday, I’m going to have to choose selectively and wisely.
- THE BONE SHARD DAUGHTER by Andrea Stewart
- THE SIN IN THE STEEL by Ryan Van Loan
- HELLA by David Gerrold
Any ideas… help?
