a preponderance of punctuation marks

Don't tell me I'm addicted to books. I know that one already.

I know that I'm a biblioholic bibliophibian. I'm pretty sure I've got that one defined and nailed down. I have a box of new books from my birthday sitting on the floor of the crap craft room, along with a "to read" stack on the library table that is growing by inches every time I clean my car. I finished Large Print (book ... 8... from Unshelved) for breakfast this morning. ... So of course I just placed another online order:

Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters - Chesley B. Sullenberger
Cast in Chaos - Michelle Sagara (Chronicles of Elantra, Book 6)
Dead in the Family - Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 10... yeah, I know, it's getting bad/old, but I just can't shake it yet...)
Vengeance Tastes Tingly: Two Lumps Year Five - Mel Hynes

The two new books that I read on vacation are Sasha: Trial of blood and steel and By Schism Rent Asunder. Sasha started out as a stereotypical "I don't wanna be a princess so I'm gonna be a warrior" story, but got a lot better as it went along. I was thoroughly enjoying it by the end, and definitely plan on picking up the second book. In contrast, I didn't realize that Schism was book two of a series until I was about 200 pages in, which gives David Weber a lot of credit for building a plot that stands on its own. However, he ended the story in typical book 2 format, with everything and everyone scattered around the plot-land and no reconcilliation of anything in sight. ::sigh::
