Will be starting Ian Claremont's first foray into the Malazan world when it comes in this week:

I'm not adept at the whole pic in a post thing, but I got Darkness Take My Hand (Lehane) and the Bourne Identity (Ludlum) up on deck. And an Ed McBain book somewheres.

I just finished
Gaudemus
and
The Accidental Time Machine.
About to start the Foundation series. Though I've read various Robots stories, and as many of his short stories as I can find, I've never made it through Foundation.
