Library Haul

About a month has passed since I've done one of these.  Before going on vacation to visit my family I took all of my books back to the library.  Some had been sitting there a while and I thought best to get a clean start.  When I got back I put a lot a few things on hold.  Originally I thought they would sort of stagger in since some had just been arrived and others I was pretty low on the waiting list.  I, apparently, thought wrong when eighteen of my holds came in between Saturday and Tuesday.   EIGHTEEN!

Though, to be honest it, sort worked in my favor.  Tomorrow is Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-Thon.  So I guess I'll use these stacks as my TBR as sort, despite my never stacks of books in my office.  Not sure where I'll start, but I've got a lot of good things so I don't think I can bad a choice.


On a random side note.  I didn't realize how small Devil You Know was until I picked up.  I do love KJ Parker, which is what drew me toward the book first.  For some reason I thought it would be a little bigger.  I don't generally look at page counts when I add things to my TBR since I don't honestly care.  Still, it threw me for a second.


Is there something I should add to the top of the reading pile?  Any favorites you've read?
