When ordering books online it can take a while to arrive, especially, as I do, when they have to be sent from other countries. The downside of this is that the book you want to read first, arrives last. So this happened with Bound In Blood (2010) by P.C. Hodgell, while the books I wasn’t in a hurry to read, God Stalk (1982) and Dark Of The Moon (1985), by the same author, arrived much earlier. Diligently I thus wait, or rather, I put my attention on other things.
Waiting for a package to arrive is much easier than waiting for the right edition of a book to be published. I prefer small paperback editions as they don’t take up that much space and in general I like small letters better than medium sized ones. I don’t know if this will give me troubles rereading them when I get old; it’s just how it is. To keep my attention up to date I maintain a Wanted Books list, because not always the bookstores will have the listed books available. Today I am able to take another one down from the list, with the purchase of The Alloy Of Law (2011) by Brandon Sanderson, a sequel to the Mistborn Trilogy.
With Bound In Blood and The Alloy Of Law arriving almost at the same time I have to choose which one to read first, although my preference goes to the latter one.
