New books!

I’ve been hearing good things about Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicle so I picked up The Name of the Wind. I’m looking forward to tearing in to it.

I also snagged a couple books from Joe R. Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard series because, well, Hap and Leonard are awesome.

  1. I’m looking forward to a re-read, waiting for my copy to come in the mail. I remember picking it up for the first time at the B&N I was working in at the time. We had two hand-trucks of this book, which is A LOT, especially as this was a totally new guy (usually the store gets for, or ten copies. We had 50+). I started reading it that night, cynically thinking “what the crap is this?”. It’s really effortless reading. One of those rare book experiences of opening the cover and falling in.

      • I worked at a Barnes & Noble back in the day as well! I can’t remember ever getting that many copies in for a fantasy novel other than Harry Potter (this was in ’99-’01).

        Back to Rothfuss though – I’m surprised I missed seeing this anywhere when it first came out. I can’t wait to relax and get reading when I’m finally finished with work today.

    • I only got a few chapters in before work today, but what I read easily passed the “Crap, I have to go to work and can’t read more” test.

      So yeah. Happy with the purchase so far. :-)
