I forgot to show what I bought at FogCon last weekend. I knew I wouldn’t be buying as much as I wanted since the budget is what it is right now, but here’s what I went home with:
I’d already read The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, and enjoyed it a lot, so I knew going that picking up the next book was part of my plan.
Then there were a ton of things I saw that were already on my TBR (To Be Read for anyone who doesn’t do book lingo) list, plus I started a whole new TBR list as I listened to panels and got interested both in books the presenters had written, and ones they recommended or quoted or talked about. Picking was tough. Then I also sort of had in my head ahead of time that I’d like to get something I didn’t know anything about before attending. Something new to me. That’s where Defrag came in. I piked it up in the dealer room because of the cover art and the thin size I thought it might be a graphic novel, and my daughter might like it. No, it’s just a short-ish book, but I still love the cover art, and the blurb sounded interesting, so it’s my ‘new thing to try out’.
