Book list!

So, I mentioned a post back that I had a bunch of books that were in my "I need to read these" pile. I finally compiled that pile (I like the word pile...pilepilepile...yep, it's lost all meaning now) and, for my own use and your entertainment, I present the list to you.

Pattern Recognition, William Gibson
The Singer Trilogy, Calvin Miller
They Have a Word for It: A Lighthearted Lexicon of Untranslatable Words & Phrases, Howard Rheingold
The Name of the Rose, Umberto Eco
The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide, Douglas Adams (yes, I know, bad Stephie for not having read it yet)
The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, Robert Rankin (on loan from Deleva)
The Great Book of Amber, Roger Zelazny
Fool's Errand, Robin Hobb
Golden Fool, Robin Hobb
Fool's Fate, Robin Hobb
Assassin's Apprentice, Robin Hobb
Lady of the Forest, Jennifer Roberson (on loan from Deleva)
The Neverending Story, Michael Ende (trans. by Ralph Manheim)
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, Mary Roach
Stardust, Neil Gaiman
Neverwhere, Neil Gaiman
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Douglas Adams
Farenheit 451, Ray Bradbury (*hangs head in shame for not having read it yet*)
The Language Instinct: How the Mind Creates Language, Steven Pinker
Mirror Mirror, Gregory Maguire
Gods, Graves & Scholars: The Story of Archeology, C. W. Ceram
A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin (we do have the others in the series that are out, but I need to get through this one first before I think about the others)
Angela's Ashes, Frank McCourt
The Food Taster, Peter Elbling
The Bromeliad Trilogy, Terry Pratchett
Kingdom Come, Mark Wade & Alex Ross
Batman: Dark Knight Returns, Frank Miller
Watchmen, Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons

The major criteria for this list were books that are a) in the apartment (as in, we already own it) and b) have not been read/completed though they've been around for many a moon.

So, yeah. No new books until at least two off the list are finished - one new book for each two that are completed. Heaven only knows how much money I may end up saving. :) The only exception is the next Harry Potter, and that's because I've been waiting for that since...well, since I finished reading the last one.
