hmm - have your house smelling of musty paper and need to remortgage to extend it due to the lack of space or spend a shit load less and have no smell by getting a kindle (other devices are available).. let me think.

I've got 30,000 ebooks, and a selection of ereaders, I just prefer to read real books at home.

30,000? at your age you've only got months left so you only need a few of those and can free up all that storage. long term, your dogs won't inherit them, they'll be only interested having a chew on your gristle

Grey sister is next on my "to read" list. Cant wait. Although this Derren Brown book is great. Informative, educational and very entertaining!

Just finished the latest Rebus, although there's another due soon-ish. Yes the retired Edinburgh detective who can't stay retired (this being the second time, as I recall) is back, and doing things his way. He's changed, as has Edinburgh, and Scottish policing, in real life, as in this fiction. No more Lothian & Borders, it's Police Scotland, with Edinburgh being Division Six. You can sort of tell that most of the power's shifted to what used to be Strathclyde Plod... Murder, skullduggery, music, and a man who's feeling the years catch up with him.

If you like Rebus, or detective novels in general, you'll like this. You pretty much know what to expect from Rankin in this area by now. 8/10

Oh, for the other people in this thread Rebus is a real human being in a real city, not a cyborg called Jjgtdsstff from the planet Thrrzzzzpt.

'Real human being'. I do love people who like reading about imaginary events and people being snobby about people who like to add imaginary settings to their tomes of choice.

BTW, for those interested, the pub that Rebus frequents is an actual boozer. Nice pint of ale, can be a wee bit "Rankin fan central" at times, although not nearly as bad as the places where J.K. Rowling breathed fresh air whilst writing the first 'Arry Potter.

That's a couple of years ago, the floor is covered and the shelves are double stacked now. Not to mention the overspill into one of the other bedrooms.
That's a good looking collection! Very nice!

Indeed! It probably helps I manage a bookshop and get a decent pile of free / advance stuff every year on top of a 50% staff discount! I have a picture somewhere of my collection , it was probably comparable to TBK's at one point , between getting flooded a few years ago and moving I lost a chunk and then donated probably 3 billy bookcases worth to oxfam and sold all my original pile of dragonlance / forgotten realms type stuff in a job lot on ebay. It's currently sitting at about 3 Billy bookcases , of fiction , 1 of non fiction. I tried ebooks , but I just don't enjoy the tactile sensation of it.

Last two things read

Fury of the Tomb by SA Sidor. Utterly pulp nonsense about an Egyptologist who discovers a tomb, mummys , ghouls and other shenanigans ensue. Not brilliant but entertaining nonsense, pretty much The Mummy - Brendan Fraser version which is obviously awesome - in book form.

Followed up by The Poppy War by RF Kuang, fantasy set in Chinese / Eastern inspired world. With lots of allegories, allusions and inspiration from recent , current history and various Chinese myths and legends. I found it very original , well plotted and highly entertaining. It's not a perfect book , but it is a great book and well worth a read for fantasy fans.

Currently reading Chasing New Horizons, by Alan Stern and David Grinspoon , the account of the New Horizons mission to Pluto and the outer solar system. Utterly fascinating so far!

Tell me about it, we queued for 20 minutes to get into the Elephant House because the kids had to see it. Pleasant enough teas and cakes, nothing special though.

Just finished "The Alloy Of Law", the 4th book in the Mistborn series. As good, if not better than the first. Much more focused than the first 3 books (About 200 pages shorter than each of them) and the book is better as a result. Absolutely brilliant and cant wait to start the next book in the series....

.... Except Im now going to start "The Blade Itself" by Joe Abercrombie due to my mate Dougs incessant nagging.

An excellent book and excellent trilogy. One of my favourite band of bastards resides in those pages. The Bloody Nine , I love him.
