Wiscon 35 - Book Report

My 2-month long bookfast starts tomorrow. I can read books. I'd better read books! But I can't borrow any from the library or download any unless I had a pre-existing hold on it, or if it's for Triple Take. And I can't buy any! With that in mind, these Wiscon purchases and the followup Amazon purchases I made today based on Wiscon reqs will be the last books I acquire for 2 whole months! They will be the only ones that look shiny.

ARCs from Galley Ho at the Gathering. 1$ donation to Wiscon gets you an ARC.

Catching Santa
Lost Voices
The Academy Year 1
Television Without Pity
Eona (yay!)
Iron Crowned (Richelle Mead ftw)

Eon (already read, needed my own copy) (Also tiptree)
