In Greek Mythology there was a god named Atlas. He was the heavy lifter of the ancient world. Keeping the sky from falling to earth by holding it up on his shoulders, Often shown like this.. That is until Heracles saved him by building the two great Pillars to hold the sky away from the earth, I think I have found one of those pillars!! It used to be called my To Be Read pile. Yes even though I have read 275 books around 100,000 pages in 2016 my TBR pile is higher than ever. So I am changing the name of my TBR to A.T.L.A.S
“Why does it mean?”
Well just like the pillars that saved Atlas my TBR pile is really tall. But that’s not why I am calling it ATLAS. No ATLAS is an acronym for
ALL TOO LARGE A STACK
And I never cared for the term Book haul so they will now be called an ATLAS POST.
“What the hell is that supposed to stand for?”
Believe it or not I am glad you asked that question Bob
ATLAS POST is an Acronym for
ADDING TO LARGE ASS STACK PROBABLY OUGHT to STOP THIS
So lets go forthwith straightaway, and without adding any additional ado,
I give you my first ATLAS POST.
I need to thank the nice folks over at TOR Books and Wendell the man under the cloak at BookWraiths for my copy of Arcanum Unbounded by Brandon Sanderson. It is beautiful!
Then I need to thank Bob Skull, my writing partner (the crazy voice in my head) for the wonderful Birthday present! He got me Lucky number #1313 of the already sold out limited Dragonsteel edition of Mistborn: The Final Empire. It is 672 gilded pages of perfection . Printed in 2-color offset black and red inks with a satin-ribbon bookmark. It has two-color foiling on its beautiful leather cover .With tons of never-before seen artwork and a new 2-page map of the Final Empire. I am in love with this book!
Thanks Bob! Sorry I yell at you all the time.

Well that’s my ATLAS for the next month or so. If you have asked me to review a book and I didn’t list it above I am either reading it, done with it and working on a review or have lost it in the shuffle of things. So to help me and you get things done and organized shoot me a email and let me know your book is missing.
And here are more pictures of Bob, my pretty book, and some swords.
