Re: Latest acquisition!

Maybe everyone who gets this book should start a new thread announcing they have it...

Well, I figured it might be a useful thread for any new acquisitions, since Rosalind no longer has an "Upcoming titles" thread, and it's always tricky to keep such a thread maintained/current.

Some people are pleased to hear when various titles start arriving in locations across the globe, but it seemed silly to post in the [Spoilers] thread for "The Persistence of Memory" because people who haven't read the book won't go there.

Sorry I darkened your day.

I think this thread is a good idea. This way we have one place to find out when stuff is starting to appear without a hundred threads cluttering up the board.

Thank you. As I said, it's pointless putting an "It's out, folks!" message in a thread that people are avoiding due to spoiler warnings.

Yes, it does make sense. When I first saw the thread, I didn't first twig it was for PoM, I thought it may have been for another Trek publication.

I've personally picked up both the Trek Vault and TNG 365 recently and am awaiting the postie with my copy of PoM.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Well, even though I've got both Brinkmanship and Persistance Of Memory, I think I'll take a detour, since I'm trying to finish up Strangers From The Sky right now, and then I'm planning on, for Star Trek reading anyway, going with either The Buried Age or Into The Nebula, kind of getaway from the one over-arching TNG storyline for a little bit, and get back into a stand-alone TNG story. Plus read a couple of Tom Swift and Hardy Boys books as well.

But that's not how you framed the original post. The thread is simply called 'Latest Acquisition' (singular) and no where in the post do you promote it as a place for people to discuss what they've bought...

Re: Latest acquisition!

I think we all agree that one distinct thread per member per purchase might be silly, but we seem to have a couple of folks who think a thread dedicated to purchase activity in general seems worth a try, so I propose we stop bickering about intentions and give it a go ...

Personally I'm not sure if it's not going to overlap too much with the reading thread in practice, but we'll see I guess.

Well, I did actually sit here pondering what would be a useful, neutral, long-lasting title for the thread that would not be limiting if other people were inspired to add to it. I didn't put the name of the book in the thread title because there were already threads discussing its cover (among other future books) and its spoilerized contents. Frankly, it never occurred to me that I needed to say even more; here's my "Latest acquisition". People adding their own "latest acquisition" seemed an obvious direction people might take.

Pretty embarrassing if I'd said, "Hey everyone, here's a great new idea for a thread, please come and add to it" and no one took up the offer.

So many posts (and PMs) here end up being, "You said way too much" or "You didn't say enough." Sometimes about the same post.

I often post here when a new arrival hits Australia, because people have told me they find it useful to know that a certain book is appearing internationally. This time there wasn't a suitable thread open to share my joy.

See now you want to stomp all over other people's joy.

Re: Latest acquisition!

I like this thread idea. When I get a new Trek book, I'm excited, and, outside of the TrekBBS, there are very few places for me to share that excitement.

I recently went on a bit of an Amazon binge and ordered
  • That Which Divides
  • Brinkmanship
  • Immortal Coil
  • Ongoing Omnibus 1

and will soon order Persistance of Memory, and the second Ongoing omnibus, assuming I like the first (which I think I will).

They've been delayed by Hurricane Sandy, but once they arrive, productivity is going to drop to, oh, about nil.

So excited...

I picked up the Origin of Keenser oneshot comic (#14) today, but there were some very important spoilery things to say about it, so for that I started a new thread.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Well, my books came late Thursday, already flew through Brinkmanship, now I'm either going to start Immortal Coil, or the comic omnibus.

One very happy Trekkie over here right now.
