The Amazin' Amazon Spree

I received a few Amazon gift certificates for the holidays and only just this morning got around to using them to shop from my wishlist. Amazon gift certificates are a good thing because I've been on a self-imposed book-buying moratorium for a few years now, and there are a ton of recent books I've been dying to read -- but of course books I don't have to spend any of my own money on are exempt from the moratorium!

Anyway, for no good reason I can think of, I've decided to share with you what wound up in my cart:

+ The Ruins by Scott Smith

+ The Road by Cormac McCarthy

+ The Terror by Dan Simmons

+ Generation Loss (I feel like adding a "The" to the title for consistency) by Elizabeth Hand

I couldn't spend it all on books, so I also got:

+ The Emilio Miraglia Killer Queen Box Set

Because that's how I roll.
