It is no fun when your pile of unread books is growing and growing but it is also no fun, I found, when you have no pile of books at all and nothing to choose from! I had 1 unread book next to the 3 I am currently reading but don't feel like reading it anytime soon. That is why I had a look at good old amazon and found some wonderful new books. And oh, all by Brandon Sanderson ;-)
The Emperor's Soul
I just enjoy his writing so much and at the moment there are no other fantasy books I really need to have, so he was my first choice. I am very curious about The Rithmatist - sounds like a great idea and I can't waint to read it!
