Amulet Book Four: The Last Council, by Kazu Kibuishi
I actually didn't break my book-buying ban with this one. I had pre-ordered it months ago, back in April, when it first was available for pre-order. You can read my initial ordering thoughts as well as get some information about the the book here. I gave my copies of books two and three away to a friend who I knew would love them, so I'm debating whether I should pick up book four right away or wait until I can get my hands on the previous books. In any case, I'm probably going to make myself wait until I've finished FOOF, since that is going a lot slower than I thought it would. Also, because of how slowly FOOF is going, and because I still have a ton of books on my to-read shelf that I got right before I started FOOF, I'm probably going to extend the ban. Maybe just to the end of September. I hate not being able to get wonderful new shiny books, but I have a lot to read already, so I want to see how far I can last until I run out. When I've finished all of the FOOF books and most of them on my to-read shelf, I will start buying books again. Or at least, that's the plan.

What's in your mailbox?
