This is why I’m never caught up.

I never get caught up on all the stuff I want to read, because I keep buying more stuff. that I want to read. Such is the life of a book-aholic.
Mendoza in Hollywood by Kage Baker – I am slowly filling out my Kage Baker Company collection. She’s one of those authors who I just collect. period.
The Best Japanese Science Fiction Stories – Couldn’t say no to this one! this one is especially interesting because it’s from 1989. It’s a short collection, I read the whole thing in an afternoon. I should probably write a review, yeah?
The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle – can you believe I’ve never read this? nope, me neither! I suppose I better see what all the fuss is about.
Matter by Iain M. Banks. Did I say Kage Baker is an author I collect? yeah, Banks too. I’m even picking up his non-genre fiction anytime I find it.
House of the Rising Sun came in the mail from Orbit. I’ve read some not-so-good reviews of this one, so it’ll either end up donated to the library, or I’ll read it as a drinking game.
Yay for new Asimovs! Always good gems in these.
and my crowning achievement, was buying a copy of this (and yes, it’s awesome)
and an e-book copy of Jason Sizemore’s collection, Irredeemable! I’m about a third of the way through, and Jason, there are some very scary things happening inside your mind.
I’m reading my way through the May issue of a brand new science fiction magazine, Bast1on, which is really stinkin’ good:
and I recently blasted my way through this gorgeous baby:
This, my friends, is why I am never caught up. books are as irresistible as kittens. I want to pick them up, pet them, let them purr on my lap for a while.
