Now with added ebooks!
Four different editions of Tolkien's The Hobbit hanging out in Calibre, after picking up the Alan Lee illustrated version on sale. I rationalized getting the second copy because my first had some pretty heinous formatting issues. The third, well it had those Tolkien illustrations and whatnot - had to have those, certainly. And then the Alan Lee - *love* his artwork, and I had a coupon for 75% off, and my willpower had taken the day off, okay?
At least I'm down to one physical pbook copy - and ebooks don't require explaining why we have to fit yet another bookcase into the house :]
(I really would love to see BookLikes add more data entry options for user's books/shelves - isbn, notes on sloppy formatting/editing, where and when purchased, etc. Buying ebooks can be such a crapshoot, production quality wise, that it would be great to have a resource tied to each edition.)

At Diesel Ebooks for $9.99 (US) - Omnibus edition including Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam.
In the tradition of The Handmaid’s Tale, Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood envision a near future that is both beyond our imagining and all too familiar: a world devastated by uncontrolled genetic engineering and a widespread plague, with only a few remaining humans fighting for survival.
Combining adventure, humour, romance and superb storytelling that is at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is a moving and dramatic conclusion to this internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy.

The Virginia Woolf is my fav, and I'm resisting a mighty urge to hit their Esty shop.
So far, anyway.

"Gaiman will read the classic tale as the great author intended, following edits and prompts Dickens wrote in his own hand for his unique readings 150 years ago."
