Wow, I haven’t done a new books post for two months (except for the book shop crawl). So there’ll be things missing, I’m sure, some I’ve passed on already, and some I’ve read. It does look like a massive pile of books… Oh well, I haven’t bought ebooks in a while and they can be useful on my commute. The rest are mostly review copies and pre-orders. I had kind of forgotten about The Song Rising after ordering it so long ago, so that was a nice surprise.

I did get a duplicate book in Illumicrate this month, which is bound to happen now and again, but also the bonus proof was something I don’t really want. Umming and ahhing about continuing because I like a box of surprises now and then but I could just be spending the money on books I want instead. I also got my second Ninja Book Box which included The Bookman’s Tale and a bunch of Shakespeare themed items.
