Who knows, but look at how many books he releases every year. Last year there were 11 books, this year I can see 12 listed (if I counted correctly). Seems pretty impossible for one person to do so. They are all pretty much the same - easy, mindless reads, although bit too violent, which is unnecessary in my opinion. So, I would say just go with the next one. Maybe some day you may want to read another one, so at least you are not messing up the order.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.
Always.

The Gap into ruin: This Day All Gods Die by Stephen Donaldson.

It was an excellent read.

As well I have watched Spartacus: Blood and Sand. I'm a huge fan of Ancient Rome and I am obsessed with reading and learning and studying more and more.
I do think we chatted about that! I had forgotten

Still haven't read any of those yet. I have this bad habit of buying more books than I could read in a month. I really should start clearing my backlog before buying new ones, but I can't help it when I go inside a bookstore.
Russian Lit? They did have a great history prior to the 1917 reveloution

Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

Under the influence of Le Tour de France I've bought a couple (which were pending from sometime) and they joined in my existing Lance Armstrong book collection such as the classic Every Second Counts by Sally Jenkins:

#1 Tour De France: The History, The Legend, The Riders by Graeme Fife.
#2 Viva La Vuelta!: The Story of Spain's Great Bike Race by Adrian Bell & Lucy Fallon.
#3 Day of Glory or Day of Pain by Laurent Watiez
#4 Need For The Bike by Paul Fournel
#5 Bike Snob: Systematically and Mercilessly Realigning the World of Cycling by Eben Weiss

I thought they will be more than enough for this year

Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

I love F1, as well as IndyCar, and the Americam Lemans seris

I have time to read as I work a lot of 12 hour shifts on overnights and it gets real quiet

I am just suprised that you actually read something that does not involve porn!
