    enough already with dean koontz and the dogs

    lol, yeah, I had to stop reading Koontz as well. I love dogs probably more than the next person, but I really don't think they're going to save the world. I read somewhere that his dog, Trixie, died; seems like he's funneling his grief through his books. There was one book - I can't remember...

    J.K. Rowling: Mistakes found in Harry Potter

    No, his mom comes out first. She says "Hold on, your dad is coming," or something similar.

    Preston and Child - Pendergrast series

    Most of the Pendergast novels can be read as stand-alone; I've read quite a few and they seem to be out of order :) Relic and Reliquary (the sequel) are the first ones Pendergast appears in as a secondary character; after that he becomes a main character. Brimstone begins the Diogenes trilogy...

    The only reason I look forward to fall/winter...

    It is so much easier to justify spending all day curled up on the couch or in bed reading when it's rainy and chilly outside; those warm sunny summer days I just can't do it! :D

    New paperback book size?

    Nope. I do know the difference between an MMP and a trade paperback.

    What's wrong with Phillipa Gregory?

    Are you ready for school?

    I'm ready...I had to take last semester off due to work issues and I really miss it. Granted, I'm not looking forward to the 15 books I've been assigned for 2 classes because there goes my LIFE, but hey, these things happen.

    Used Bookstores and your expections

    I prefer to buy my books new. The only local used bookstore by me doesn't have a very good selection, and they tend to not be very particular when it comes to accepting donations. Some of them are pretty battered looking. I usually only visit when I'm culling my bookshelves :)

    New paperback book size?

    Yep. I'm a moderator over at Cinema Blend. Thought I'd take this issue around to a couple of sites and get some opinions. :)

    New paperback book size?

    Hey, that's my picture! I recognize the purple flag sticking off the taller book! :)

    New paperback book size?

    Well, in my area at least, the usual mass market paperbacks are $7.99. These new-sized ones are $9.99. So we're paying $2 more for an inch taller book.

    New paperback book size?

    I guess that depends on your idea of what a "good read" is. These have been books that I've been waiting for (like Small Favor by Jim Butcher) that suddenly got taller.

    New paperback book size?

    I'll have to go back and check, but I do think it's a bit larger font size. It's not large print, but maybe a point or two larger.

    New paperback book size?

    I wasn't able to find anything already posted about this, so sorry if it's a duplicate... But has anyone noticed the odd sizing of newly released paperbacks? They're the same width and depth as a regular mass market paperback, but like an inch or so taller. I'm not seeing them for all mass...
