You know those books you vaguely want but haven’t yet gotten around to buying?
Here are three of mine – all SF romance.
Sara Creasy‘s “Song of Scarabaeus”: This one came to my attention after reading Janicu’s review. I would definitely buy this if it was available in ebook format. As it isn’t, I’ve gone as far as picking it up in a actual physical bookstore and reading a few pages. There is a second book out in March, so maybe the wave of reviews for its sequel will spur me to actually buy this one.
Gini Koch‘s “Touched by an Alien”: There is also the ebook thing with this one as well (which surprises me slightly, I’m sure DAW releases books on the Kindle), but in addition to that – and this is going to sound really shallow – the alien reference in the title is putting me off. But I know quite a few people really liked this book.
Marcella Burnard‘s “Enemy Within”: I love the title and cover. But it is a trade paperback so there’s the price thing, and also – at the risk of sounding like a broken record – it’s not available in ebook format. Then again, broadly positive reviews which make it sounds like a whole load of space opera fun – and have already I said I love the cover?
Heh. Writing this post makes it evident that the main reason why I haven’t bought any of these is that the ebook version isn’t available in the UK. I guess I’m starting to view purchasing an actual book as a proper commitment (which it is – it takes up real estate on my very limited bookshelves!). And my impulse buys are very much saved for ebooks.
