I have not had much time for reading lately and have been reading some non-fiction (especially running books), so progress on my fiction book list has slowed considerably. I am doing my best to make time every day to read, but usually just manage a few pages before bed.

I almost forgot about the Alachua County Friends of the Library book sale this spring... except for the fact that my in-laws came all the way from Texas to stay with us so they could go to the sale every day. :)

Just like last year, I bought a few hardback books to replace the paperbacks on my shelf. "King David's Spaceship" by Jerry Pournelle in hardback was a good find. I was also glad to find "Footfall" by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle in an excellent condition hardback. I only attended the sale on half-price day, so I didn't spend very much money on these at all.

The in-laws also found a few books to add to my shelf. They said "you gotta read some Lem!"

Here is the list of new (to me) books:

"Driftglass" by Samuel R. Delaney

"The Syndic" by C.M. Kornbluth

"The Big Time" by Fritz Leiber

"The Star Diaries" by Stanislaw Lem

"A Matter of Taste" by Fred Saberhagen

As an added bonus, my in-laws brought a couple of Philip K. Dick books with them from Texas to give to me. My reading list continues to grow.
