If you see me typing in "quotes", that's because I'm remembering what it was like to be a fundie and then typing as if I was one :3 "Please. Understand that I only want to share God's love with you. I mean you no harm, really. You need to stop sinning."

Not sure if anyone but me cares, but...
Black Library (the book publishing arm of Games Workshop) has released bundles of some of their most popular series in e-book form. Buying them isn't cost effective if you have more than a few of the books in the bundle (unless you just want them in e-book form), but for series you haven't read but want to, it's a good deal. Several of the bundles also come with short stories and audio dramas that go along with the books, or audio book versions of books that also come with the bundle.
I've already picked up the Salamanders (Space Marine) bundle and the Night Lords (Chaos Space Marine) bundles. I have too many Gaunt's Ghosts, Ciaphas Cain, Ultramarine, and Horus Heresy books for those bundles to be worth it. (There's actually 3 HH bundles - one with just the books, one with just the audio, and one with both books and audio.)
There's also a few Warhammer Fantasy / Time of Legends bundles, but I am only now getting into the Fantasy setting. I am thinking about picking up the Gotrex and Felix bundle.

For some reason I didn't bring Pale Blue Dot with me to the new house but I brought Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors. Both by Carl Sagan.

Finished Either/Or. Onto Theory Of Moral Sentiments by Adam Smith
Its pretty good, but he hasnt said anything new yet
"And so, having expounded a theory of moral sentiments, I can reveal a code of ethics that be of unimpeachable quality, and recite them thus:
- Never stab your way out of trouble, for 'tis infinitely more efficient to shoot your way out instead;
- If they can't pin nothin' on you, then bastards be trippin;
- Half a dozen mashed puppy heads will make enough wall grout to hold a bathroom together..."
The last chapter is a humdinger.
Well I finished it. I...don't really get what you're saying though
Now I'm reading Life And Fate by Vasily Grossman. It's really cool. Though the Russian names start to blur together at times
"Whatever interest we take in the fortune of those with whom we have no acquaintance or connexion, and who are placed altogether out of the sphere of our activity, can produce only anxiety to ourselves, without any manner of advantage to them. To what purpose should we trouble ourselves about the world in the moon?"
Working on Embassy town by China Meville. Pretty good so far, about a planet full of aliens with a language that should not be possible. I can't wait to see how it ends. Knowing the author the death and ruination of all of the main characters is a pretty safe bet.
