Latest discount book buys

All a hardcover edition and for $1 each thanks to the local library book sale.

- A Most Wanted Man by John le Carre

- Closing Time by Joseph Heller

- Anathem by Neal Stephenson

- Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind

- The Pillars of Creation by Terry Goodkind

- Naked Empire by Terry Goodkind

- Confessor by Terry Goodkind

- Phantom by Terry Goodkind

- Chainfire by Terry Goodkind

Had been thinking I'd like to read the sequel to Catch-22 recently, so finding this nearly pristine copy of Closing Time was a bit serendipitous. All of the Goodkind books are brand new donation copies; have never read any of this fantasy series but figured at worst case I can donate the books back for the next sale if I don't care for them.

With the addition of A Most Wanted Man, I have several le Carre novels but have yet to get around to reading any.

I find Stephenson's writing to be a bit odd, as it can be both enjoyable and incredibly tedious to finish at the same time; Anathem looks as though it will fit this pattern for me.
