My mum and I spent the morning in Stratford browsing used bookstores.  I bought two Wheel of Time books (I own the entire set except for Knife of Dreams now), Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov, Snow White and the Seven Samurai by Tom Holt, and Lost in a Good Book and The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde.  Came to $35 and dashed my hopes of buying a soundcard today as well.  I shall have to grab money from the bank and stop into Sherwood Music after school on Monday.  Until then, I'm pouring through The Eye of the World (Book #1, which is pretty fun after reading #3-11 in the past few months) and hacking on a couple fun projects I have going while I don't have homework.

If you're talking about Knife of Dreams, I'm just planning to pick up the paperback when it comes out. I don't need another hardcover from that series; they're absolutely massive.

The Foundation Trilogy is really great. Have you read the first book already?

I would also recommend reading Asimov's Robot Series starring Elijah Bailey and R. Daneel Olivaw. The two series are tied together...

Yeah, I read the Robot and Foundation series a few years ago (I assume you already read Foundation's Edge, Foundation and Earth and Prelude to Foundation?) I enjoyed the twist ending of Foundation and Earth quite a bit.

Yes to everything. I really liked how Asimov brought nearly all his books into the same universe and timeline.
