- On, by Adam Roberts.
- Swiftly, by Adam Roberts.
- Embassytown, by China Mieville (both this and Swiftly are signed copies I got at Q&A/readings events at my local Waterstone's last summer, organised by a guy I play Call of Cthulu with on an irregular basis).
- House of Chains, by Steven Erikson, which is half-read; one of those rare occasions I started a book and couldn't bear finishing it.
- Acacia, by David Anthony Durham... which, I dunno, I bought because I suppose I thought it looked interesting - but obviously not interesting enough to actually sit down and read.
- To Say Nothing of the Dog, by Connie Willis.
- Sacred Games, by Vikram Chandra, which I've tried reading three times and never got past the first few chapters.
- The Behaviour of Moths, by Poppy Adams - I try to make a point of not reading anything written by anybody called 'Poppy', so I don't really have any idea where this one has come from, but there it is, anyway.
From which we can only conclude that my pace of book-buying is not commensurate with my pace of book-reading.
I happen to be coming to the end of my most recent purchase (The Dervish House), so let's hear it: which of these unread books should I read next?
