Today I had a difficult choice to make.

In Borders, with £20 of book token.

On one hand Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, on the other The Algebraist.

Both books were reduced to £14.99. On the other hand, JS&MN is twice as fat (it's a brick!) and Iain Banks has never bought me a drink, so it wasn't that hard to choose really.

I was looking at The Algebraist in Waterstones today myself, but eventually settled on Chasm City, by Alastair Reynolds, on the grounds that I'd already read the first one.

I did consider getting Absolution Gap, but decided against on the grounds that I'd only just bought and read Revelation Space recently.

JS&MN is well weighty, and recent Iain M. Banks haven't impressed me much... difficult decision, but I think I'd have chosen the Banks. Mind you, I stuck with Robert Rankin at least 5 books past the point he became unreadable.

I'm in no position to buy books at the moment anyway... :/
