I debated if this was worth buying or when when I did.. but I've enjoyed that madness of the artwork enough now that I got my moneys worth. For quite a while I wasn't reading fiction, but I bought lots of coffee table books that I would like to flip through.

That's a perfect book for a coffee table

@Steve I thought that book was pretty awesome in a sort of 1984/Black Mirror/Ready player One kind of way. You will have to let me know what you think! I'm currently trying to finish this before I get to jump into book two of PON.. It is a surprisingly awesome short old Sci-Fi.. Also I guess book 2 of Empires of Dust just showed up along with another book or two, so I will be going to pick that up today but I have no hope of being done before the spoiler discussion. Debating if I will watch anyways or not currently lol

You can always join us for the books you've read and jump off before you get spoiled. Not sure you'd have time to finish before Saturday, or even try to

Late to the party but... Do I spot Game of Thrones in that pile? 😎

Went to the best used book store I’ve ever been too over the weekend and I picked up books 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, & 7 of the Dark Tower series, Good Omens, Holy Sister, and the Art of War. Not pictures but we also picked up a Celtic folklore and mythology book, another one on African folklore and mythology, and a couple books in the Outlander series. I’m a big fan of mmpb and it bums me out a lot of newer books and series don’t get published in that format anymore. I’m also that person that often doesn’t particularly care if the books in my series match, and I will pick up whatever I can find cheapest bc I already spend too much on books as it is. Holy sister I just picked up here is mmpb and I have book 2 in the trilogy in hardback I picked up in a sale bin 2 years ago, still need to pickup book 1. But especially series that aren’t a top priority but I know I want to read eventually, I will try and just pick up books in the series as I come across good deals for them

Code Red by R. Saint Claire is free for now at Amazon
I won a Code Red paperback from Regina's Haunted Library just before Halloween. Regina included a few other goodies as well. Dave and Olive at Book Blather gave her a very understandable shootout in their original Kindness Tag. The author did not ask for anything in return. This hack write-up was the least I could do:
Code Red is a fun ride on the back of a 3-wheeler with some nice zigs and zags along the way, or maybe a vampire. These detours are well earned and signposted. R Saint Claire economically creates relatable flesh and blood (sorry, not sorry) characters with succinct details and convincing dialogue, lifting them above stock. For example, page one begins with a Mom and Dad driving into a small town with their sick son in the back, where one parent strikes me as entitled (though not explicitly stated) and the other just strikes. Evocative atmosphere and gothic architecture are painted without unnecessary brush strokes adding a spooky vibe with nods to vampire lore. The author has a lot of fun with mountain grandpap Silas Cooter. I definitely wouldn't decline sitting on ole Silas' porch, with a special brew, listening to him pick his banjo. The objectification, dismissal and sexism women endure on a daily basis is smartly included, though not heavy-handed. Code Red is like a very satisfying, but not fussy, meal cooked by your mom. I"m ready for seconds.

The cover for Priory of the Orange Tree is so good

Agreed! The prequel (out in Feb 2023) is even prettier. Going to cave and read it. Pure cover-read this one. I know it's superficial and has nothing to do with the text but it's just that gorgeous.
