    Just purchased "Last December" by Richard Paul Evans. I LOVE his Christmas books!

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Don't remember. I often buy large amounts of books at garage sales and so on. That was what I did the last time I remember buying any.

    Does the Power and Honor Foundation catalogue count?

    If not, my last book was the Bud Spencer biography.

    I have the entire Marvel run plus alot of the comics that came after before IDW took over on a DVD.

    Last books I bought were:
    The Unwanteds (the wife brought it home)
    The Secrets Of Nicholas Flemel: The Alchemyst
    Inheritence

    I was so happy when Sailor V got translated! I bought copies of the original Japanese about 15 years ago.

    Well, technically I didn't purchase this somebody gave me this: Professor Woggle-bug and the Frogman of Oz. I've read the first two chapters so far and it's really good.

    VENOM - Collecting Venom #1 - #5

    Never bought any of these new Venom comics as I didn't like the idea of anyone other then Brock being Venom plus I am not a great fan of military stuff, all that standing to attention, hoorahing and YES SIR stuff bores the hell out of me to the point of annoyance.

    But it was on sale for £5 so I thought I may as well give it a go because, hey...it's the Venom symbiote so it might be cool.

    Story...sucks
    Dialog...sucks.
    art...super sucks
    Flash Thompson as Venom...sucks

    in short Venom sucks

    also what is it with jocks who are bullies becoming war heroes?

    Flash bullied Peter Parker all through high school and was later made into a war hero and in Smallville Whitney used to bully Clark (which was quite brave considering Clark could have pulled him in half and threw his corpse into orbit...around Jupiter) and he later became a war hero when he died in action. Cuz yeah,jocks / bullies make the best heroes

    I just bought A Storm of Swords and A Feast for Crows by George R R Martin. I can't wait to start reading them, but I need to finish A Clash of Kings first.

    The last book I bought was the latest in Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series. City of something..? lol.
    However, the last book I read was "The Fallen." It was wretched. I couldn't even finish it I was so annoyed.

    The last two books I've read are the latest in the Star Trek: Typhon Pact series. I really must say that all the books that have followed the events of Nemesis and the series' respective endings have all been topnotch

    Is that by Laura something or other.

    I had a preview copy of that many moons ago and I hated it. I was like oh man here we go again. Moody dark man and love struck teenage girl.

    I dont remember the last book I bought but via Amazon Vine I got The Second Empress by Michelle Moran.

    Well, Flash did reform in the comic books. He and Peter ended up being friends after high school and into their adult lives.
