Today is important. That’s right. Did you forget?
Yeah, I can see you twisting your head around, looking for some clue. Grandma’s birthday? Some anniversary? Was I suppose to retire today?
Today is the day Cold Days by Jim Butcher is released. Yes, I have mine on pre-order. Yes, I’ll be checking the mail like 3 times a day until it arrives. Most definitely, I have read the first 4 chapters Jim Butcher made available on his website.
There are several giveaways running for Jim Butcher’s works. Over at The Ranting Dragon, they have several great articles about The Dresden Files, a giveaway for the first few books in the series (in case you haven’t read the books, but want to), and a print of the Cold Days cover art.
With all that said, there are a few other books coming out today that I have my eyes on.
Trapped by Kevin Hearne is Book 5 in the Iron Druid Chronicles, another urban fantasy that I have quite enjoyed. I have my audio version on pre-order with Audible.com.
The Unreal and the Real, both Volumes 1 and 2, by Ursula K. LeGuin are also being released. I have read a few of her pieces and based on those alone, hold her in high regard.
What books are you looking forward to as the year winds down?
