every time i turn my back for about 2-3 months its like another wave of 40k books hit the racks. I will be book shopping and BOOM:headbutt:! a new line of books! Im a book worm and have been reading 40k longer then i have been playing. Do not get me wrong im happy that i want run out of reading for along time but damn it man i just fill left out. I think GW should hunt up some boys like the Black Lirary have then a codex or 2 might get poped out sooner. I even find myself reading about the Eldar... i dont like the Eldar, but i still read on. Black Library needs something like the Nook, you buy this hand held thing and pay X amount a month. then you can link up your nook thing and download what ever you want!

To be true im a book fan, i like holding a book and i enjoy the smells of different books and paper. I really enjoy having them on the shelf as well:so_happy:.

haha i couldnt agree more :D

they churn out quality so quickly XD

i feel the same way with haveing a physical copy of something, makes you feel like you got something for your money (its the same for games, dvds, cds, etc)

only thing is, are all the writers avid 40k players? or are alot of them 'fluff buffs'?
cuz that would really be the only thing holding them back from codex writing

I would wager that a portion of the writers definately play the game. However, some of them, like C.S. Goto make glaring fluff mistakes that would probably point to him not having picked up a codex in a while (Multi-laser Devestators.)

In fact, Gav Thorpe have written a couple of novels, I think.

The verb "churn" and adjective "quality" don't often go together (and in the case of BL, really shouldn't.).

The Gav Thorpe eldar trilogy is off to a good start, though.
The Eisenhorn and Ravenor books are quite a good romp.

The Horus Heresy series is (imo) a bit hit and miss.
Same for most of the marine porn.

If I was younger, it might be different. At one time, I found myself devouring book after book by Stephen King. This stopped in my teen years after he started churning out crap rather than scary stories. Now, I'm a lot more discriminating.

Most Nooks are equipped with wiFi, so that wherever you are that has a signal you can access and download from the internet (if it's a Nook, only through Barnes and Noble, of course).
