My haul was

The Broken Sword & Three Hearts and Three Lions by Poul Anderson
Viriconium by John Harrison
Aegypt by John Crowley
Art Matters: How Imagination Can Change The World by Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell
Bedtime Stories for Worried Liberals - Stuart Heritage


First Chronicles of Druss the Legend and Lies of Locke Lamora are both very good books.

I have a copy of The Broken Sword and plan to read it in the near future.  Don't feel any pressure to say yes, but I'd be up for a buddy read.

I’ve been lurking on the F-F Facebook and some interesting things pop up from time to time but I don’t get why it’s so popular? Lots of members there but doesn’t feel like a community to me  just random strangers talking about books you could spend 10 years there and not get to know anyone. It also suffers from trolls if there is even a slightly controversial topic posted.

I feel the forum is so much better to get to know other members. You wouldn’t get a topic about depression and support  over there.

I love that here we know about each other’s  crazy habits like  Iso81 always goes regular at 9pm

I like it when people ask if anyone on the the group has read a series called Wheel of Time and whether it is worth the effort.
