book shopping

Went book shopping with RAM on Saturday. We found lots of good stuff, unfortunately we didn't buy anything. I guess I need free time before more books can enter the picture (I've got a stack of five to read already).

1. The Traveler by John Twelve Hawks.

Kind of a conspiricy/old society/mystical book, it looked to be one of those books I would get lost in, just like House of Leaves. This book looked pretty darn cool (add it to the paranoia category), but it was the back cover that really got me.


2. The Preservationist by David Maine.

This was a fun alternate look at Noah and the ark. I've always liked reading those books that re-visit a story from a different point of view (Grendel, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, etc...). This seems to take the Ark story from many points of view. I must pick this up sooner or later.

3. The Code Book by Simon Singh.

Yet another one I've been meaning to read for ages.

All your picture links are broken.

Yeah, my bad. I used relative URLs instead of absolute ones, so if you look at it syndicated or in "comments" mode, you won't see the pics. Should be fixed now.
