I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Book shopping yesterday was an adventure. The power went out twice, both times while I was paying or about to pay. And it didn't just go out for the store I was in, but for several blocks. Traffic lights, everything.
But it all worked out in the end, unless you count the damage to my shelf space. I offloaded one bag of books and brought back three bags of books.
Anyway, here's the haul. It's lovely, even though I'm still debating where to put it all. I need to put together a library donation bag or two. (I have different criteria for donating rather than selling - the library I work at gets most of the manga I decide I don't want, for example. 99% of the library's manga collection used to belong to me.)
Aoharu x Machinegun vols. 1-3 - I read the first volume while eating a late lunch yesterday. This series starts off a little like Ouran High School Host Club, only with guns and the heroine never actually revealing that she's a girl.
Gravitation EX, Volume 01 - Maki Murakami - I want to do an "everything Gravitation" reread at some point.
Ceres: Celestial Legend, Vol. 2: Yuhi - Yuu Watase - Filling in a gap in my collection. I think I'm only missing a couple volumes now.
Crown of Love, Vol. 2 - Yun Kouga - I really like Kouga's Loveless (which I think might be on hiatus?) but have never read any of the author's other works. I'd need to get volume 1, but that shouldn't be too hard.
Several other manga volumes to try out. Surprisingly, there are still Alice in the Country of volumes I haven't read. I wonder how close I am to finally being done?
Japanese light novels! I already know I like Baccano, and most of the rest are ones I'd like to try out.
And all the rest of these, except for Gil's All Fright Diner, are "I need to read more of the series first before I can touch this" books.
