A couple e-books of Shadow Unit, a collaborative urban fantasy series by Emma Bull, Elizabeth Bear, and a number of other witers, in the style of a procedural TV show. Think Criminal Minds by way of X-Files. It's all free on the web, but I bought a few because I like the model and want to support it.
Also, I got an updated version of Snuff via Amazon Customer Service. The typos in the first version were embarrassing.
Canada 1911: The Decisive Election that Shaped the Country are the three Canadian history books I'm drawn to right now.
Recent purchases for me: the two Penguin collections of Charles Dickens's Christmas books, none of which I've ever read before, not even A Christmas Carol. I'm going to try to read one story each Christmas for the next few years. Also picked up a couple nice old Brian Aldiss paperbacks: a short story collection called No Time Like Tomorrow and a short novel, Bow Down to Nul.
Also I hate Patterson. I really hope he isn't writing them.
Joe R. Lansdale's The Complete Drive-In.
"'Kirby got a shitty contract too, so get over it' isn't a great tagline."
Borderlands, an early 90s collection of horror/suspense short stories.
Choke Hold by Christa Faust
The Black Camel by Earl Derr Biggers
"If you live among wolves you have to act like a wolf."
Aliette de Bodard's Master of the House of Darts (the third volume in her Aztec fantasy detective series, "Obsidian and Blood"), Richard Kadrey's Aloha from Hell (the third urban fantasy in the "Sandman Slim" series), and L.E. Modesitt Jr.'s Ghosts of Columbia (an omnibus of the first two novels in his alternate-history-with-ghosts series)
Naked Lunch by William Burroughs. This should be interesting...
If you think this is over then you're wrong
It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.
I got two books today.
Fable: Blood Ties by Peter David
Star Trek Enterprise: The Romulan War - To Brave The Storm by Michael A. Martin
"I can't complain. I got to be Jim Morrison for the first half of my life, and Ward Cleaver for the second half." - Warren Zevon.
Halo: Glasslands by Karen Traviss
Haunted Pet Stories by Mary Beth Crain
Keith Richards "Life" and I am on the hunt for Murakami's new US release "IQ84"
