It looks as though this will be a series of posts over the next - what, few weeks?

It's a leap year. Sanity is in short supply.  You can't have mine.

Hmm. I know a couple of kids who might like that as a present.

The Goblin Emperor is one of my desert-island books.

I enjoyed the Carrie Vaughn one. :) Stephen Brust is usually good for entertainment.

I'm waiting on Tricks For Free as well. Going to be broke Wednesday, I'm afraid.

I still :o haven't picked up "Wonder Boys", book 2 of the Clocktaur duology, by Ursula Vernon.  That, electronically, and (obviously) my hardback of Burn Bright by Patty Briggs (to be autographed) are my expenditures for the month.

I would have more to spend, except that last week I finally broke down and ordered the Diana Wynne Jones novels that were missing from my collection. It's one of the few things I use Amazon for, since I try to buy locally as much as possible. Sometimes you just can't find what you want locally, though.
