What books do you plan on buying at SBL/AAR?

I thought it might be fun to compare shopping lists of biblioblogers.

Here are mine in no particular order:

1. Leander Keck, Romans

2. N.T. Wright, The Last Word

3. N.T. Wright, Paul: Fresh Perspectives

4. Cosgrove, Weiss, and Yeo; Cross-Cultural Paul

5. Mark Reasoner, Romans in Full Circle

6. Kevin Vanhoozer, The Drama of Doctrine

7. James Smith, Who's Afraid of Postmodernism?

8. Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, Saving Christianity from Empire

9. Sandra Polaski, Feminist Introduction to Paul

10. Camilo Jose Vergara, How the Other Half Worships

I will limit it to ten for now, and I know that some of these will not make publication by SBL, but that will allow me to add to the list.

So what will you buy?

Thanks Michael, I signed up for the Reasoner book, and now I will go for the Keck book too. But is there any hope when one is up against Tobias Nicklas, the RBL king!

Cheers on the heads up!
