Man, I've hardly read anything this month. I'm only eight books into my read-50-books-this-year reading. That's terrible!
I'm reading Nathalie Mallet's The Princes of the Golden Cage right now, but finding it slow going. I'm about 60 pages in, and how many times does the main character have to realize he has to find out who the real killer is before it's too late? Because he's realized it two or three times at the very least. And so far, nothing much has happened. But much more annoying is the evident lack of copyediting. Does Night Shade Books even know what commas are for? They seem to shove them in pretty much anywhere.
One of the things I like about ordering from Amazon (as opposed to going to the bookstore) is that I'm not limited to the same handful of big publishers that B&N stocks in their fantasy/SF section. I'd never even heard of NSB before I dropped this book in my Amazon cart. One of the books I read recently was published by one of Dorchester's imprints, so I'd never have picked it up in the bookstore since I never enter the romance aisle. I may not like everything I order, but I'm finding an awful lot of good books I'd never had read otherwise. Yay for the internets!
