vin: Not a problem man. In fact, will throw in a book for you (my choice) free of charge.

Actually, been meaning to talk to you about a couple of things (namely, your experience in trying to print a book and Comicquest's anime series which I only just discovered). Next time, okay? :-)

Alexander said...

Goodness! You've got a Jim Butcher novel!

Vinnie, don't you want to read a modern day "blast-blast" fantasy story? The Dresden novels are for you!

All these books in your room? What are you....a reading machine? heheh Hope you're not suffocated by now.

alex: Yep. Though it didn't help that I saw an episode of the Dresden Files and ended up being rather confused on the tone of the story.

don: Heh you just plundered the horror section, man. Sorry, vin got first dibs on the Julian May book.

daniel: Hiya! Welcome aboard and welcome to blogging! Yep, have lots of books though the list you see right now ain't even a fifth of what I've got on my shelves (both read and unread).

Gabe said...

Are you kidding? $15-20 for a paperback? I can get them for a quarter!!!

Vin said...

gabe: Hey man! I see you're back on the blogging saddle again and not that puny wordpress you're using. And my pricing is local currency so that's US$1 to PhP45.50 which means it's very, very low. (The prices are less than a quarter actually.)

vin: Yow! Too late, Don got the Dresden book first! :-(
