A photo post, because why not?

Here's my current in-progress reading materials. (You can see how far I've progressed on each, too! ...As well as my complete inability to use any of the dozens of Actual Bookmarks I own.)

Laurie R. King, The Beekeeper's Apprentice. - Reread. I'm going to buy myself the latest ones in the series for my birthday, so a whole-series reread seemed in order!
Mary Gentle, Grunts. - New. I seem to have stalled out; it's been over a month since I picked it up.
Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 13+14+15. - I stopped for a few weeks, but I'm feeling the love again!
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. - I intend to do a reread of the entire series; finished HP&PS last month but lost this one for a while. I'm reminded that this is the book I almost quit the series after, back in the day! For some reason it's slow going for me.
Patricia McKillip, The Bards of Bone Plain. - New. Loving it! This is one of the authors I always rec to people as underappreciated fantasy writers/underappreciated female authors of fantasy. Gorgeous language and beautiful interwoven plots.

What are you reading, flist?

I'm taking part in [personal profile] blnchflr's summer book club this year, so that's going to be my reading list. Well, as soon as the books arrive, still waiting for two.

I just returned from a book-shopping expedition abroad!

My current pile is:
Stephen Baxter, Ultima
Ken MacLeod, Newton's Wake
David Drake, The Sea Without a Shore
Adrian Tchaikovsky, Children of Time
plus in non-dead-trees format, the Vorkosigan saga reread, and the Hugos read. (I'll start with the shorts and wend my way up to the higher wordcounts. Also, I'll WRITE DOWN MY THOUGHTS on these books. Accountability.)

...Woops, I'm a bit busy.

This was recommended to me as "not Mary Sue!!" - people shouldn't lie when recommending things :)

I need to get started on A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1943) by Betty Smith, since I'm hosting the discussion on it soonish!

YES for reading the love! (LOL! I intended to write "feeling the love," but I like this Freudian slip so much I'll leave it there. :D)

My gorgeous FMA 2003 Collector's Edition arrived, and let me tell you, I was feeling the love. (I mean, for that big a chunk of change they OUGHT to have some extras thrown in there, but still. There was squee.)

At the moment if I am reading, it is mostly for work (books on translation, books on Japanese, books on computers). I hope to remedy that soon, though, before I go insane. ^_^;
