    I purchased 2 books on Amazon today:

    "When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times" by Pema Chodron
    "Never Goin' Back: Winning the Weight-Loss Battle For Good" by Al Roker


    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.

    Man, those Choose your Own Adventure books bring back some memories. I would always grab those from my library as a kid. I loved the interactive books as a kid: Lone Wolf, Choose Your Own Adventure, Zork, Encyclopedia Brown, and the Super Mario Books where you had to keep track of items and coins. Fun times!

    Just recently I bought Moonraker by Ian Fleming, Carmilla, and one of the Grimm's Fairy Tale graphic novels.

    Brand new copy of

    Star Wars: The Complete Vader



    on Amazon.com it can cost between $94 - $212 (£58 - £130), seriously go to amazon.com and search for "9781847376657"

    I paid £1.99 ($3)

    I may not like star wars but this is quite a good bargain

    Thanks, fellas. Yeah, they were fun books to read as an kid. And I can't believe you said Encyclopedia Brown, BBQ! Those books were awesome. I'm sure I still have some copies of those books in my attic somewhere I stored up there along with some other gaming books I was into.

    As for my most recent purchase, I just received Deadwood City in today:

    Don't lie, wolfer. Slowly you are being converted to the Dark Side of Star Wars fandom...

    Novel : A double pack of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Thuvia, Maid of Mars" and "The Chessmen of Mars". Missing the 1st person narratives, but still a healthy portion of high adventure sci-fi fantasy. In case anyone asks, it plays out like a series of Frank Frazetta movies in my head, though keeping thered-copper skin tones.

    Comics-*Finally* got my pre-order in of Udon's "Super Street Fighter" vol 1 GN. Wish there were more pages considering the wait, but still a lot of fun. I would give more reviews, but I want to wait a while longer before tossing spoilers around. The wrestler fan in me is happy the grappler characters got some good page time, including seeing Haggar and R.Mika in a SFIII timeline.

    The first two Star Wars Republic Commandos were the last books I bought. Prior to that it was a couple of the latest Star Trek novels released.
