Decided that after many years of contemplation, that I'll actually try out a Mack Bolan (The Executioner) novel and see if it suits me. There's 670+ books in the series and spinoffs if I do.

Recently I've picked up:

Savage Sun (Outlanders #3) - James Axler
Target Lock (The Executioner #258) - Don Pendleton
Stargate 03: Retribution - Bill McCay
Desert Kings (Deathlands) - James Axler
Sunspot (Deathlands) - James Axler

I'll also mention that if you come to find Shelfari too limited and irritating with it's odd quirks as I and others have found, try Goodreads.com out. Besides not having Shelfari's problems, you can add books if you can't find your specific entry or version and apply for status to edit book entries and upload covers. Oh and you can upload spreadsheets and text files of books and it'll process them and add them to your collection. Smiley

If you have a shelfari list going, you can export it to your HDD, then use that same list to populate your goodreads account, save you a ton of time. When I moved mine over, it processed 350 or so of my 365 listings from my Shelfari list. The other 15 were easy enough to add manually. Smiley

The last books I bought were Shaman's Crossing and Forest Mage by Robin Hobb.

I bought this awesome art book called Street Sketchbook. Over 700 illustrations and images and it cost 60 bucks...but well worth it.
