Just a few more days!

Starting on Friday, I'm taking a 5-day reading vacation (meaning that I'm going to spend the entire time reading, not that I'm taking a vacation from reading). I have too many books I want to read during that time. It's the best problem ever.


I plan on concentrating on physical books. Here's what I'm deciding between, at the moment:


Every Heart a Doorway - Seanan McGuire  Captcha Thief - Rosie Claverton  The Player of Games - Iain M. Banks  

Halo: The Fall of Reach  - Eric Nylund  Banner of the Damned - Sherwood Smith  Warprize  - Elizabeth Vaughan  

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit - Nahoko Uehashi,Cathy Hirano 


The only one that would be a reread is Moribito - I want to reread that before reading Moribito II for the first time.


See what I mean? Lots of choices, and there's still the possibility that I might ditch them all and go for something buried deep within one of my bookcases.
