I got a sudden urge to read hard sci-fi. Normally I'm a soft sci-fi or fantasy kind of girl, but right now I feel the need to inject some reality into my life.

Time to reread the Mars trilogy, I think. Except... I always fall out of love with hard sci-fi before I get more than two thirds of the way through Green Mars. Maybe I should read something shorter? Suggestions?

My suggestion for the first month of the [community profile] books book club is winning. Yes, we don't want all that literature, we want Good Omens!

I have just over 5,000 ebooks on my hard drive, but I can't find anything I want to read.

Nooo!

Based on previous purchases, both Amazon and Fictionwise think I would like crappy vampire romance novels. Lots of them. Pages and pages of recommendations that read like: "Mary-Sue Titmouse was just a dull little secretary until a dark stranger rubbed up against her at a friend's batchelorette party. Now she's out for blood!!!" and "Darkette Stabhell is the last of her people, sworn to rid the world of the monsters that hunt unsuspecting humans. When a terrifying new threat forces her to work with dangerously sexy vampire, Vladimir Exsangine, her heart may show her a new path." and OMG, NO MORE. Just because I have bought books containing magic, knives, blood, mythical monsters, romance and sex does not mean that I like crappy vampire romance. Have I ever bought a vampire romance novel? NO. So shut up shut up shut up SHUT UP.

Excuse me, I have to go select 'not interested' 500 times.
