Follow Friday - 179 Is Not a Palindromic Number in Any Base

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - Living on Borrowed Days.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: Book Merchandise – show off some of your stuff – posters, t-shirts. Whatever you got!

The redhead and I are attending CapClave right now. While we don't have any merchandise to show off, we have acquired a number of books and two comic book issues. The most interesting book in the bunch handed out to CapClave attendees appears to be Interstellar Travel and Multigenerational Ships, a collection of essays about the practical realities of interstellar space travel edited by Yoki Kondo, Frederick C. Bruhweiler, John Moore, and Charles Sheffield. Also included in our CapClave packets were the novels Ascension by Jacqueline Koyanagi, and Shoggoths in Bloom by Elizabeth Bear. We also got two comic book issues: Guardians of the Galaxy, and Futures End, issue zero of The New 52.

I also acquired both Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie and Lock In by John Scalzi. I did have to buy these two books myself from one of the book dealers at the convention, but when it comes to books by Hugo-winning authors, I am more than happy to do that. CapClave doesn't end until Sunday, so I'm sure we'll be getting more cool stuff before it ends, but since I don't have it yet, I can't show it off yet.
