Recently Read and Other Reminders

It's a little early in the year for a reading recap, but I feel like doing one anyway. Here are some of the books that I really enjoyed reading so far:

Her Own Devices--Second in a series about a young female inventor who becomes the leaders of a gang of street urchins.

Khe--A science fiction novel about two alien races--no humans involved.

All the Paths of Shadow--A fantasy novel about a king's mage who has a talking plant as her familiar. Reminds me of Patricia McKillip's work.

The Chocolatier's Wife--Fantasy, chocolate, and a sweet romance--what more can you ask for?

A People's History of the World--A thought-provoking--and at times depressing--look at history. This is the longest book I've read this year.

The Curse of Chalion--I finally discovered Bujold.

The Uncertain Places--Few books can evoke a sense of wonder in me these days, but this one did.

For what it's worth, I've already read over 14,000 pages this year.

As part of my birthday giveaway this month, my fantasy short story "Letters to Psyche" will be free on Amazon Thursday and Friday. After this week, it will be out of the Select program and coming to Smashwords and B&N, so this is the best time to get it for Kindle. Also, don't forget Lyon's Legacy is only $0.99 at Amazon and B&N through April 30. Although you can read Twinned Universes without having read Lyon's Legacy first, Lyon's Legacy does provide more background.
