    I buy nearly all my books from used bookshops and you never know what you might pick up on a visit...

    Bouncing back and forth between H. P. Lovecraft (on Whisperer in Darkness) and Junji Ito's manga collection

    but mostly I'm going through Pinocchio, rewriting, writing, making a new outline to try to get my thoughts in order. Old outline was... really old. Didn't have a lot of the chapters.

    Portrait if a killer, by Patricia Cornwell. A book based around Jack The Ripper.
    This might not be my best work but that just means there's room to improve.

    I don't have a big ego. You just can't comprehend my greatness!

    Used bookstores can be relatively expensive, I spend a lot of time going through books in charity shops. They tend not to classify them as well (or at all sometimes) and there is a lot of 'Chick lit.' as people use them as a sort of exchange, but there is stuff there. I have built up a really good collection of writing reference books, dictionaries of all sorts of things from quotations to idioms. Of course they only get used for browsing, it's easier to go on line to look up something specific, but it makes a fascinating six feet of shelf for an idle hour. The other thing I have found there over the years is a good collection of classics, they are the sort of thing people buy because they feel they ought to, then dump without reading, but on the whole they are actually worth reading, that is why they became 'classic'.
