    I had no idea there were more books in that series. I'll have to look into it (and reread the Giver) - loved that book when I read it in school.

    I've never used it in a social aspect just to keep track of books lol.

    Also, really liking Instapaper for anyone who wants to read news/articles on their kindle (or just to save articles/ the option to read in a nicer format on a web browser).

    Started the second book in the Witcher series last week, just about done with it.

    I was, at long last, able to take a break this summer from all the dense, philosophical tomes I've been reading for coursework, and that means: Jack London's Call of the Wild and White Fang. Man! What wonderful stories! I'm sure most people here have read them, but this was my first time!

    Just started reading Worm:

    Gestation 1.1

    My first foray into web serials. Was recommended to me by a close friend who has excellent taste in books (and by excellent, I mean very similar to mine) so we'll see if he's on point with this, too

    So several weeks ago while my husband was off doing work stuff, I was watching PBS and ended up watching a thing over the Great American Read.

    Books | The Great American Read | PBS

    Aaaaand then this happened...

    Most normal people don’t spend $300 in a single day on books. But yanno. The mailman was like, “Seriously?”

    I really recommend "We are all completely beside ourselves", especially for any lab animal people. The prof I did research with recommended it. I'm halfway through and I am really liking it.

    I realized that I ordered the wrong version of The Alchemist and ended up with a crime/suspense type novel about drug lords and stuff rather than the correct one, so...

    I ordered The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream (Coelho). The correct one.

    I also ordered Life of Pi (Martel).
    And In Cold Blood (Capote).
    And The Time Traveler's Wife (Niffenegger).
    And On the Road (Kerouac).
    And Fahrenheit 451 (Bradbury).
    And The Secret Life of Bees (Kidd).
    And the first book in the Wrinkle of Time series (L'Engle).

    BUT

    I only spent $17.63, including shipping and tax.

    So.

    Are there any authors you guys collect? I have a little Bill Wallace collection. I always check for him when I visit thrift stores or used book stores. He was my favorite author in grade school so it's mostly a nostalgia thing, but he's also a damn good children's author. I'm still upset that my sister got to meet him and I didn't.

    I'm up to 10 Terry Pratchett novels now (was it @vetmedhead and @PippyPony who were recommending him earlier this summer?) so that's turning into a collection, too.

    My Stephen King collection is extensive. Michael Crichton is a close second. The hubz collects Brandon Sanderson (actually most of the Michael Crichton is his too, I've read all the books but they were from the library).

    Anne McCaffrey and Sheri Tepper are my biggest collections based on author. Good old sci fi/fantasy :D Though to be fair, I think my childhood Animorphs collection may rival those...

    I have a huge Chuck Palahniuk collection. My dad started it for me after I wrote my big HS junior literary paper on him. He has gotten all of the books at Goodwill.

    Also, my bio prof renamed her greyhound Pratchett when she adopted him

    YES YES YES

    I don't hoard many authors. I believe my main collections are of Pratchett, Vonnegut, and Philip Roth books. There's more if you include graphic novels and comic strip collections though

    Pratchett, some L.E. Modesitt Jr. (I like the Imager series, but am far behind at this point), some Mercedes Lackey (I like the Obsidian trilogy and Five Hundred Kingdoms). I'm starting an ebook one for Claire North.
