Oh Merlin! I totally agree! (P.S. I really love the ylnt podcast!!)
Yesterday the significant other and I dropped in to the Borders at Bondi Junction and resolved to be more proactive with our reading. He decided he would read reviews and stay on top of new releases, and we both want to boost our use of the excellent Shelfari, in order to branch out more. I'm currently devouring Saturn's Children by Charles Stross and despite the hilariously bad "femme bot" cover that I am ashamed to reveal on the morning train, I'm enjoying it very much.
Leave a good book suggestion in the comments! And feel free to add me on Shelfari: I live here.
